She wants to do everything "all bine self" (all by myself), including walking down the stairs. She carries on conversations with us and narrates our days, beginning to end. She's extremely strong willed and has preferences for everything from food to clothes to stuffed animals. I'm loving (almost) every minute of it.
Sometimes she terrifies me because she's so fearless (like when she wants to go down slides and stairs "on tummy" or when she went down this slide all by herself).
I'm so proud of her for helping- putting toys away, cleaning, sweeping and mowing the lawn. She even helps me make my coffee in the morning! (How much longer until she can make me coffee all by herself?)
She's becoming much more independent too. Which is nice. Not that I don't love having a toddler glued to my leg 24/7...

It's so exciting to watch her grow up!
