E was looking through her ABC book and saw a picture of a lizard for “L”; she announced that lizards eat sheep. Where does she get this stuff? E is interested in more-complex books such as Winnie the Pooh. She enjoys watching online videos of Winnie the Pooh, Daisy Duck, and Minnie Mouse. Mom had to switch off a Minnie & Mickey episode because of the violence. She sings to herself – “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” “I’m a Little Teapot,” and “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.”
C is walking by herself – provided no one is looking. She is increasingly independent in her feeding and gets irritated when her parents try to feed her and she gets very irritated when her parents try to feed her and give her the “wrong” foods. She seems to see her snack cup as an extension of her arm and squeals for the cup as soon as soon as she gets up from bed. She is interested in her hair and tries to brush her hair (with the wrong side of the brush) and tries to use her mother’s flat iron (when it is turned off).
