Not much time update that is. This will be brief. I just wanted to update so that I didn't get nasty comments about updating. :) I know...I'm the nasty commenter, but......

I am simply going to brag on my daughter. Everyone finds their child amazing...I am no different. However, I truly believe that she is above average in her critical thinking skills at this point. She just amazes me with the things that she puts together and understands conceptually. I remember a time when my niece, Caitlin, was around 2 (maybe younger, maybe older...I'm not really sure. She's incredibly intelligent, herself). She realized that the ABC's and Twinkle Twinkle were the same song. I thought that it was just unbelievably intelligent at her age. Last night, Cassie was singing, "ABCDEFGHIJK....." She looked at me puzzled and said, "Twinkle, twinkle little star???" It clicked in her head that it was the same tune. From my experience, most adults do not even realize that it is the same tune, so I just find it so hard to believe that a 19-month-old heard the tune and thought of the other words (by the case you didn't know...bah, bah, black sheep is the same tune, too).

That's all. I just think that she's amazing. :) She is. :) If you disagree, well, don't disagree! :) If you have kids, chances are I think that they are amazing too. Kids just amaze me with their comprehension. Amazing! :)

Our family has one that MIL sings to Jelly Bean.

Baby Jesus grew and grew, Just like you, Just like you. Clap clap clap his hands like you and said "peek a boo" "peek a boo".

Still Twinkle Twinkle tune.

And all of us older kids (me, DH, BIL and SIL) asked at about the same time: How do you say "peek a boo" in Aramaic?

Sheep say "Baa."

Ebenezer Scrooge says "Bah."

For the record.
