Gettin' down with Sylvia

It has been quite a while since I've shared anything new about Sylvia. Why don't we change that?

Alright, here's a list of stuff:

Talking. Sylvia is starting to expand her list of words. We have versions of Grandpa, cow, potty, poo poo, please, shoes, and see ya that have popped up recently.

Potty Training. Speaking of poo poo, I think we're getting close to being ready for potty training. She's gone from being afraid of the toilet to wanting to sit on it and even wiping. Not that she actually goes... but it's a start! She also will tell me when she need a fresh diaper. "Poo poo. Poo poo, Mommy." is something I hear a lot. About a quarter of the time, she's right. She's also really into getting out her changing pad and having her diaper changed. I'm not sure if that's another sign of being ready, but it seems like it could be.

In the interest of full disclosure. She doesn't always want to have her diaper changed. Most of the time it ends up with me chasing her around naked with a fresh diaper. Oh, and she's the one that's naked, not me. How weird would that be?

Dancing. I think Sylvia's natural talent lies in dancing. She loves it. Almost every single day we're down in the basement playing Just Dance together. Every once in a while it gets on my nerves because it means I have to stop everything and go downstairs and play the same songs over and over... and over. Most of the time, though, it's a fun little break for us. And she just loves it so much, I can't say no. She's actually been imitating the moves onscreen. I took a video a few days ago that I just love.

I feel like I need to inform you that the socks and sandals thing was her idea. She actually insisted on changing her shoes before we went down to dance. She gets her fashion sense from me.

Wheels. Sylvia loves anything with wheels. She's getting the hang of her trike.

She also loves pretending to drive. Remember that super cute car commercial with the dad and his daughter? I'm going to have flashbacks to this time in about 14 years.

At least she's a stickler about wearing her seat belt*!

*This is not how you should wear your seat belt.
