Our girl is showing more and more independence by the day - in a good way! On Sunday past, when we went out for lunch, Lilah picked up the menu and said to us, "I'm going to make a choice!" - we're just lucky she's still easily influenced by us! She dresses herself now too. More recently I've started to set out her clothes for the day and she takes care of the rest. She wants to do it in her own bedroom, alone. She tells us "I'll let you know if I need help!" and is very VERY proud of her achievements! I am still amazed at how much she listens to our adult conversations and totally gets everything we say. She'll bring it up hours, days and even weeks later. A couple of nights ago while we were eating supper, Colin was telling me about how slippery the roads had been that morning on his drive into work and was going into a bit of detail on how even the brand new tyres that he got on his car last week would spin when he was taking off. About 5 minutes later Lilah asked, in a very pronounced adult voice, "Baba, is there a problem with the Focus?" - he drives a Ford Focus! She sure keeps us on our toes!
