Girl V now 31 months old

Knows her right from her left and tries to tell me where to go in the car - gives directions to the park.
Can ride a baby trike if I push the handle to help her along.
Uses the potty about 90 percent of the time during the day for "both" needs.
Talks a lot, says things like "Daddy, you stay here in Mommy's office, I go downstairs and get some toys for you. Stay here!" (LOVES telling Daddy and Mommy what to do as you can see.)
Amuses herself with books and toys for 10-15 minutes or so, when asked.
Waits patiently while Mommy talks on the phone.
Comes inside the church for Mass, does not talk but does not sit still either.
Knows lots of songs and likes to sing and dance. Makes up her own songs.
When I come in to wake her up she says, "Mommy, have any dreams?" Which means she wants me to ask her if she had any dreams. So I do, and she invariably says "I dream about clowns Mommy!"
She likes to read books especailly new books!

We all love the Girl V updates. If they don't draw comments, it's only because there's only so many ways to say "Awwww." But keep them coming!

Here are the lyrics to some of her recent songs:

Baby Chicken, Baby Chicken
Mommy Chicken, Mommy Chicken
Daddy Chicken, Daddy Chicken

and:

Rain Fast! Rain Fast!

She would not follow me on our walk the other day, but stood there shouting "No coming wif you! Stay me lone! Stay me lone!"

then later "No helping me!"

Hmm, I wonder where she got that...

People are always so shocked when I say that I don't, in general. Of course I adore my own, but the usual run of children soon annoy me. I like the ones who are intelligent and lively and well brought up, so I like Girl V and some other friends' young ones, but the sort of children who interrupt adult conversation or aren't obedient or look like nothing short of an electric charge could move them off the sofa don't appeal to me.
