Funny Girl

Our little girl is so sweet and funny. We will try to teach her something and she doesn't seem to be the least bit interested or paying the slightest attention. Suddenly, she will surprise us by demonstrating that she figured it all out some time back and just didn't feel like letting anyone know. The most recent example happened with singing her ABC's. We have been singing it to her for the longest time and she would only sing the ABC part and then drift off. Tonight, my jaw dropped to the floor when I suddenly heard her sing the whole song form A to Z, hardly missing a letter. She did something very similar with counting. When I praised her, she just smiled and ran down the hall.

These moments, combined with her incredibly astute observations, have solidified a feeling I have had for some time now, a sense that I am in the presence of a mind far greater than my own....just a tad disconcerting.

Meanwhile, she loves to make people laugh and spent the better part of an evening playing the bridge for Keenan in the "London Bridges" nursery rhyme. Tonight, she threw a wet paper towel across the dining room table at Keenan (this was after she systematically cleaned her spot at the table) and they both laughed hysterically. I scolded her and said "that's not funny" she just smiled, laughed and told me in a very serious tone, "yes it is". I couldn't help but laugh and agree "well maybe it was a little funny." This was met with more gales of laughter. Fortunately, most of the time, the kids make it difficult to stay in a bad mood.

What a cutie pie and such a good sister! So smart, the Abc song how cute! They are amazing! Lilly is growing too fast for me too handle. She is a sponge soaking it all in and showing us she understands most everything.
