Honestly, I think that first photo was just because I grabbed the camera, since her next photo included running in a circle and laughing...while holding her new friend: the hanger.
I believe she is beginning to understand that when I hold the big black thing that beeps and clicks, she should ham it up. If so, we should have some great photos in the near future.
Also: that dress? Too cute.
And I am not of the too cute variety.
She had a good day at school. She made a turkey and shared snacks and walked her own self into the room to play for the second time - a definite improvement. When we got home, she immediately asked for the lights. Lights! On! Lights!
The tree thrills her. She asks for the lights first thing and then stand there gently touching the tree, the limbs, and oh my goodness the necklaces!!
They are oh so pretty.
She loves the tree so much that she will randomly give it hugs:
