Teresa has decided she's a big girl... where being big mean using utensils and undressing herself. We hadn't been offering utensils, but recently handed her the sppon of yogurt/cereal at breakfast and she masterfully stuck it in her mouth and licked it clean! So at lunch I tried a fork with her meal and she again used it well. She seems to prefer her left hand for feeding, but that might be because I sit to her left and feed her more than Dad.

Her other great interest is undressing herself. I really don't know how much we should encourage this, but it is cute seeing her work her arms out of layers and try to find her knees and feet under pants.

Seth and Family Posted by Picasa

Teresa and Dad... Eatin' Yogurt. Posted by Picasa
This weekend we went to the snow with Seth and Riley and their parents.

On SUnday mornign Teresa awoke shiny at 6AM (yawn) so she was bright and eager when Seth finally staggered out over an hour later. She walked up to him and wrapped him in a big hug. When he didn't respond, he got another hug, and over they toppled. Then Seth was awake!

So yesterday when reading "Buckle My Shoe" to T (a book from GG for Christmas), I pointed out the sticks the bunny and mouse (in her illustrated book) were carrying for "Five, Six..." Today when wandering in the yard Teresa, very pleased with herself, picked up two sticks and I swear she looked just like the happy bunny and mouse carrying her sticks and skipping along! She'd never picked up sticks before, rocks are generally the interest.
