I'm a Big Girl!

We're not quite sure when it happened, but Munch is just not a little kid anymore. She sure wasn't a baby for long either, but we were expecting the toddler stage to last at least a bit longer. Maybe it's her height- she passed the 3 foot mark long ago- people easily mistake her for an older kid. Maybe it's her independence- she certainly has never been clingy and happily waves us away when she goes to daycare. But one day it happened- "I'm a big girl!" she declared, and everything changed. She grew (again!), insists on using the potty by herself (and shuts the door for privacy), and has decided that babies (anyone under two) cannot be her friends any longer. But the thing that really did it was the dressing up (she chooses her own clothes and usually mine too) and the iPod- yes, the Munchkin has her own playlist of favorite songs. And our morning commute now finds me no longer having to entertain her- she's plugged in and sings away!

Here's what she's listening to:

We love Vivian/s song list -really. Good to hear (no pun intended) that she is an Abba fan. If you haven't seen the movie yet, go see Mama Mia. Vivian would love it and so would you and Patrick.
