Things you did today

Dear Big D.
You did some pretty awesome stuff today:
- For breakfast ate an orange, banana, blueberries, and 2 scrabbled eggs.  Whoa.
- Slid down the slide without wigging out.
- Swung on the swing without wigging out.
- Climbed through a tunnel without wigging out.
- Got stuck in the chicken coop ( by your own accord) without wigging out.
You are growing up.

btw - You chased the chicks into the cage. They got escaped and you got stuck. We didn't leave you in there a REALLY long time.

Awesome things you are doing.

- You can recognize and point to cars, leaves, flowers, dogs (especially dogs), chickens, tractors (anything not a car is a tractor), strawberries, bananas, oranges, bubbles, and balls.
- You eat all kinds of fruit and with great vigor. Your dad is trying to grow strawberries in the front yard but is having trouble because you dig through the bushes and pick off anything the slightest bit pink.
- You want so bad to do just what everyone else is doing - be a big kid. Following dad around to copy him, carry the eggs back from the roost to the house, dig in the flower beds, sweep and mop, stir up the dinner, and tackle the steps with your feet instead of your hands and knees. (You're just a mite of a thing still).

(Helping Dad dig)

- You just are figuring out how to 'scooch' yourself off the edge of the porch. This is a wonderful and frightening development. (Means you can more easily escape!)
- You love to walk our dog tally. She often will walk to fast and pull the leash out of your hands which makes you mad. You can walk a LONG ways with your little legs if you are walking the dog too. When we do this at the park - every... and I mean EVERY grandma-age lady has to stop and ooooh and ahhh at you. And You often will 'DADADADADADADA' back at them :)

Today you are 15 months old! Look how many things you can do. :) (Slow down a bit will ya...)
