Changing Diapers

This morning Anne was playing with her teddy bears in her room. Then she got up on her bed, pulled off the changing pad and put it on the floor. Then she walked out of her bedroom. It didn't occur to me that she was doing something in particular. She came back in with a cloth diaper wipe she had gotten wet -- and proceeded to "clean" her teddy bear. And tried to put a couple different diapers on the bear. She was too cute! Besides pretend talking on the phone, this is the first creative/imaginative play I've seen her do. Very cool!

The perfect kid

I was complaining to Ben that when Anne and I went outside this evening for 15 minutes, I got six mosquito bites - SIX - and Anne got none. I didn't think that Anne had gotten any bites all summer and I get a minimum of three every time I step outside. But then Ben said he saw her get a couple of bites last week on her ankles. And she never scratched!

My child covers her mouth when she yawns, says "Thank You" TOO often, and doesn't scratch mosquito bites. I think I have the perfect kid.
