this week, penny was introduced to the wonderful world of crayons! she is an artist! i drew the blue "P" on the paper, but the rest is all her:
also, stairs! she is up and down the stairs like a maniac! she seems to not be eating anything, though she still has a round tummy so we're not worried. and teeth - so so so so so many teeth.
the other day alex was making funny faces at her, and she laughed like a little girl and not like a baby. she is gaining words (puffs, broccoli, book, bottle, bubbles, more, and my personal favorite, woof) at a rapid rate, though none of them are understandable by anyone but us. she understands complex concepts, knows what every room is called, and now owns several pairs of big girl shoes.
she is now a person and not a baby. incredible.
