I feel like Carrie is reaching "that age". The age where:

She wants to do EVERYTHING by herself

She will request to watch the same movie every day for a week (We've recently gone through Ratatouille, The Little Mermaid, and Cars phases)

She will actually sit and watch an entire movie

(for example, Justin was sitting on the couch watching TV last night, and Carrie crawled up right next to him and did this)
She LOVES to help with whatever I'm doing, in this case, making scrambled eggs this morning. (Oh, and by the way, she totally knows how to crack an egg: a little tap on the counter and then squeeze it until it busts into pieces and the insides fall out into the bowl, very messy, but it works)
But her most prominent "that age" thing is..... TALKING!!!

Most of the time it's so incredibly cute I don't mind that she goes on and on. Occasionally though, I'm reminded why "the quiet game" was invented!

"What are you doing? Why? Mommy, look at this! Do you see it? You do, you do? I wanna play kitchen! Mommy want some dinner? It's hot, blow blow blow! Baby Wren want dinner? I wanna push baby Wren in the stroller! Going on a walk! See ya later! I'll be right back!"............. I'm feeling out of breath just typing this!

As we walked around Hobby Lobby this morning, she sang through "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", the "ABC's", and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" on her own, multiple times.

She's a busy little girl, but I love every minute with her!

haha too funny! We should switch toddlers for a day. Julia never talks. She is SO stubborn because she CAN, she just doesn't. It's kind of annoying sometimes because I try to ask her questions and she just won't say ANYTHING. haha!

The picture of Justin and Carrie just absolutely cracks me up I love it! Sounds like your daughter and mine need to get together they can talk each others ear off! Too bad we don't live close.

At least you can understand what she's singing! lol! Crystal SINGS at the top of her lungs, but carries NO tune! lol. And a lot of the time she just makes up her own songs. So she's in the back seat singing "PAPA TRUUUUUCK I GOOOO SEEEE PAPA AAAAAND GAAAMMMMMA AAAAND PAPA TRUUUUCK..." and a whole bunch of jibberish after that ... lol ... its way "fun" to listen to after 5 minutes ... LOL!

BTW that pic of Justin and Carrie is priceless!!!!
