Sylvia is also quickly entering into "Toddlerville." The other night Dave was feeding her dinner. She ate all her food, but when Dave began to clean things up she got very angry and threw her spoon at her daddy! Apparently, she wasn't ready to be finished eating. This afternoon she was upset and wanted nothing to do with me, so she crawled down the hall, rounded the corner, and sat outside Lovebug's room to cry. She also refuses to wear her socks and often pitches a royal tantrum when she needs to get into her car seat. Yes, joyful days are ahead of us!
The upside to these new advances into independence is all the fun we get to have. She truly loves to play with her Mama and Daddy and her new abilities and problem solving skills are quite impressive. I love going in to get her in the morning because she is always ready to face the day with a smile on her face and is eager to begin playtime with Mama. She also loves people. This past weekend we went to ArtPrize in downtown Grand Rapids and as we wheeled her around she would smile and wave at strangers, she would flirt with the boys, and if someone was not paying attention to her she would begin to make noise and flap her little arm harder. I truly wish that each and every one of you could spend just a little time with our Pumpkin. I promise she would make you smile and love life a little more.
