Oh where has my baby gone?

The other day I finally had to admit to myself that Micah is no long a baby but a little toddler. Especially after I did her hair in piggy-tails for church and took this cute little picture. She is growing up. It is fun and exciting to see her accomplish so many new things and watch her personality develop but sad on my heart that it has happened so fast.

She has decided that she should eat at the table with us and no longer likes the tray on her high chair. It makes cleaning up so much harder but she loves it. She often tries to sit in "Cale's Chair" which doesn't make Cale to happy. This morning Cale wasn't awake yet and Micah thought she was pretty big stuffy. The worst challenge is trying to keep her off the table. If you strap her in she screams at the top of her lungs and if you don't she crawls all over the table. What to do?
She has taken quite an interest in Cale's binkie these days. If Cale has them she grabs one and runs. She likes to suck on it just long enough to bother Cale.
She love it when the fridge is open and can play with everything. Lately she just loves to sit on the little ledge as well. She wants her blankie all of the time. When you get her out of bed she hands you her blanket, her moo moo, then looks around to make sure she has everything the lifts her arms for you to pick her up.

She is so much like Zoe in this regard. She loves to play on the counters especially while I cook. She will sit the whole time I am cooking. She plays with the utensils, snacks, plays with the toys on the fridge, and most recently she discovered the spice cabinet. Now you can't keep her out of it but she loves to shake them all. The one toy sings the "ABC" song and she plays it over and over while she dances. She is quite the little dancer. All you have to say is, "shake it Micah" and she is dancing away.
