Slightly belated but here I am and I'm twenty-one now! Home stretch to two!

I've been busy working on my chattering skills this month. I can pretty much say anything and I talk all the time. Mom is all, "Lu, you're still only 80ish% intelligible," and I'm all, "Thanks for judging me." I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm stringing two words together pretty consistently and I am pretty good at getting my point across. I am an awesome eater. I'll try anything. And I love sauce - ketchup, ranch, syrup etc. I want sauce for everything! My favorites right now are wuh-wuck (yogurt) and fishy crackers and any kind of fruit and anything someone else is eating. Milk is still poison. I love Reese's Pieces. That's probably why I'm growing so big and strong. I have 16 teeth. I'm about the same size I was last month. My feet are a 5.5. I'm still using the potty a few times a day and I'm even telling mom and dad when I need to go sometimes.

I'm still a professional sleeper. My nap is usually 1:30-3:30 pm. At night I go to bed about 8 pm and wake up around 7:30-7:45 am. I have Herb, buh-buck (Herbie blanket), and Mickey in my bed. I never fuss in bed - I'm happy with all my guys, and of course my gucks too. For a while mom was making me leave them in my crib. Thankfully she's totally caved. That was lame.

I started school this last month! I go one day a week. At first I wasn't so sure (possibly mom and dad had to pick me up after 1.5 hours) but now I love it (possibly related to being allowed to have guck and Herb there). I love story time and singing and dancing and the playground.

I'm also taking swimming lessons with dad and I have so much fun. When I'm not busy with that I love to play outside and take walks and run around the deck. I love playing with my baby dolls. I'm an expert doll wiper and changer. I love books and coloring and anything Juj is doing. And I LOVE watching Mickey and the Princess and the Frog.

But my biggest news - I got an upgrade. I'm a big sister now!! My brother Max moved in a month ago. I love him.

I love to hold him and find his ears and nose and eyes and help mom with him. I always make sure to hug him before bed. I test his bouncy seat for him. And I sleep through his screaming.

It's been an exciting month. I think I make a pretty great big sister!
