Soon She Won't Need Me At All...

I have mentioned on here before how AP is Little Miss Independent. I mean she picks out her clothes, dresses herself completely including socks and shoes, washes her own hair, buckles herself in her car seat, and potty trained herself before she was 2. I think one of her very first phrases was "I got it", meaning I don't need your help thank you very much. Can I just say that she is the complete and total opposite of her brother? Anyway, a few nights ago after she dressed herself in her jammies, she said she was going to dry her hair. I told her to go ahead and then followed her to see what she would do. She proceeded to get the hair dryer down (it stays plugged in so she didn't have to touch the plugs), turn it on and then dry her own hair. completely. She even shook it back and forth and leaned her head over to get the underneath! I think she is slowly phasing me out!

Oh my goodness- that dryer is as big as her tiny little head! I cannot believe how independent she is! But don't worry mom...she is thriving and growing and learning b/c she knows she is now in a safe and secure environment where she is completely loved.

AP cracks me up! I agree with Jamie, she's so independent because she knows she's got a good base support!

I just wish Beckett would show more interest in going to the real potty. We have progressed to him telling me when he needs changing... that's a positive step right?? ;)
