things she eats these days: fruit, milk, and more fruit
Humpty "Dumpy" is her favorite nursery rhyme
Cinderella is the princess she adores
she tells me her favorite animal is a horse
she paints with very few colors; pink at our house, blue at Grammy and Papa's
she asks almost every day this question: "so whad ya do today?"
her toy of choice these days is her new Cinderella doll
a hug and kiss before someone leaves or she leaves is mandatory, and so is both at bedtime
she's been pretending she is a dog lately, getting pretty sick of the barking!
we "make" her hair everyday(it's about time she start getting used to this!)
she really does not like "putting my head back"(washing her hair)
Aniston likes playing with my hair and gets it out of my face for me too

I was bossing Aniston one day and she threw up her hands and said
"So you think you're a Princess?"
We pop the breaker in the kitchen often, and when it happens Aniston will say
"ahh seriously!!"
"I'm sorry you got mad at me Mommy" I guess is her way of saying she is sorry?
"I'm being a good girl"(when we tell her she's being naughty) and "I'm not crying"(while she's crying) are her attempts of getting out of going to time-out.
Aniston was teaching me how to say words the other day, it was so cute to hear her talk to me like we have talked to her when we've taught her how to say things.
I took her to the temple and she absolutely loved it! We walked around and played in all the water, and then I took her inside to see the Christis and to cool off. When she saw the statue she said "look Mama Jesus wants to hold me!" and she also noticed that we had the same Jesus in our house(smaller of coarse). I showed her that Jesus had marks in his hands, and I tried to explain them as simply as possible. We went back down to look at more pictures and stopped to talk to the sister missionaries. Aniston told them we had just seen the Jesus statue and that she saw the marks in his hands. We then went over to the pictures and she said "Mama there's Mary with Jesus." It really surprised me, even though it shouldn't, that she knew that. She remembers and knows more than I think. She listens when she is taught, and so I knew then just how important it is that we take the opportunity to talk to her and teach her about Jesus and the gospel.
She's getting smarter, taller, sweeter, sassier, more stubborn, more limber, and more observant every day and I absolutely LOVE her! We missed her 3 year check-up the other day, which she was very upset about, but it's next week and I can't wait to see where she's at!
