She has also gotten to be quite the girly girl lately. She has a couple of purses that she puts on her arm and carries around as she walks around the house. She has to hold her arm up by her face so that she makes sure to not drop the purses. Mariah also loves to carry her chapstick around and wear clicky, girly shoes. (She's also infatuated with carrying around wet wipes, as an odd aside)
In addition to acting quite girly, Mariah's personality is showing through quite a bit lately. She loves to laugh, chase Nala, and raise her eyebrows when something seems odd to her. Thankfully, instead of destroying everything 24/7, she's starting to catch on and pick up after herself. It's pretty cute when she tries to put the towel back on the rack or put her tub toys away; they can't be out of place. I can't imagine where that comes from...couldn't be either of her parents.
We love watching her grow and learn everyday and could not ask for a better daughter.
