whats an amazing thing your child has done?

so tonight my 19 month old blew me away and i wondered about all the other kiddos out there. what is that thing that your babe has done that freaked you out ~ in a good way ~ where you thought no way you did that or know that?

tonight mags found a random bag of cheezits. she picked up the bag and looked at me and said cheezits open. the amazing thing about this is, we dont really eat cheezits, at least not enough that she would know the bag and remember the word from the last time she did see them :)

a few other things that she has done lately that i was in awe over: the other day we were walking, holding hands and she sort of swung my hand and said 1, 2, 3 up.

she was reading a book with me that has shapes in it and she pointed to the diamond and said diiimond, she also knows a triangle and a circle.

yesterday she was writing on a piece of paper with an ink pen ~ HER FAVORITE ~ and said to herself, 6, 7, 8, 9 as she was writing.

the other day just at random while she was playing she said a, b, c.

love this baby girl!!

here are some random pics from lately, she is so busy i cant get a pic of her face!
