4.22.15 Put letters together F A D E and when I asked what letters they were, instead of naming the letters (like she had been doing just before), she said the sounds: "Ffffff, ahhhhhh, ddddd, ehhhhh." Amazing.
4.23.15 Took of her shirt, shorts and undies by herself.
Strings two perfect sentences together.
Is fully aware of what we say and what we ask her. Still has trouble answering "who?" though.
Saw a scary video tonight and made me think that I can't protect her forever. Such a bummer.
4.24.15 Hey Lemon, let's go do this. "That sounds amazing." Hahahaa
4.26.15 Said "this is cozy" when we were sitting by each other in our fire truck.
Said "that sounds amazing" again about something.
Said "that's weird" for the first time.
Likes to say "mommy be Lemon, I'll be mommy." Or "daddy, be Lemon, I'll be daddy." Wants us to switch roles and act like her.
Last week she called a fly a "dirty hippie."

5.5.15 I said "let's touch fingers, let's touch elbows, let's touch toes" while we lay in bed and snuggle. Then she said, "let's touch eyebrows" and we did with our eyes open and she said "that's freaking crazy!" Hhahaha

5.23.15 We had a whole convo before bed last night about how the birds keep eating her strawberries and how we should put a fake snake out so they don't eat them. She suggested a play-doh snake (the only fake snake she knows I think).
She said "bummer" and when I laughed she said "bummer dude." She is always listening!
5.27.15 Gave her a cookie and she said she wanted more cookies. I said just one cookie and she said, "two cookies."
Corrected me while watching a movie, I said "deep dark woods" and she said "no, deep dark forest."
Her favorite games to play at night are doing "itsy bitsy spider" up my back and then me doing it to her, or her eating my nose or eyes (or boogies or mole) and then putting them on her knee and then I tickle her to get them back.
She likes to pretend things are tied up or "stuck." She pretends to tie up my hands and then has to untie them before I can get them out.
Loves watching Tinkerbell and the Never Beast or the Pirates one or Daniel Tiger. Hates watching "kids" which is actually Friends (or any other adult show we watch).
Loves swimming, starting lessons soon. She has also been modeling for some pictures, listens, smiles and likes it.
Got her first pedicure on Monday, was so fun!

6.5.15 Anticipates things. "I don't want to be scared. I don't want to brush my teeth. I don't want to go to bed. I don't want to take my nap." Never wants to nap or go to sleep.
Can't answer questions about us, only about her. Repeats things she can't answer, like a parrot. Drives me nuts.

8.2.15 Grabbed me and said "You drive me so crazy!" and I thought it was so funny but it was from a movie.
Said she wanted a sister and I told her that that involved mommy growing a baby in her tummy, then having a baby, then the baby living at our house and then being here all the time, sleeping in mommy's room and crying. Then she said, "That's too crazy." My thoughts exactly.
8.9.15 Lemon was Goldilocks last night in a photo shoot. She was so cute!

8.26.15 Asked Lemon what she wanted to be when she grew up, gave her a long list and she said "policeman" which wasn't something I named off. I told her she would have a gun and may have to taze people's butts and she sad no, she would be a good policeman not a bad one.
9.17.15 Said "I'm moving I must have batteries." Then I explained that she doesn't have batteries she actually has blood, bones and muscles that help her move. Then she told every for days she had a skeleton inside her body.
Swam by herself in James' pool on 9/5/15, all by herself, after just 4 weeks of new swimming lessons.
Moved up a level in swim class today, so proud of her. She got a medal, her picture taken and got to ring a bell and everyone clapped.
She did a somersault unassisted today too, gymnastics paying off!
