Tiana's 1st School Picture

It's been over 7 weeks since Tiana started school and I am happy to report that she has adjusted fantastically! She had a few days where she would begin to cry just before 'quiet time' but has chosen to accept it for what it is... quiet time, and that's it. She refuses to take a nap for Miss Susie & Miss Donna and likes to test them by getting off her nap mat. Needless to say, she's exhausted by the time she gets home and I have no problem putting her down for a well deserved rest. She has improved greatly with her fine motor skills (pincher's) and she loves matching colors & shapes. She got a trampoline for her birthday (they have one in her classroom too) and that too has helped her gain the coordination she needs to jump with both her feet off the ground - WOOHOO!! According to Miss Susie, Tiana will drink her water from a regular cup, however at home she insists on using her sippy cup - ARRRRRRR. Her ability to verbalize sounds is also improving however, it isn't anything I we can really understand - she loves to babble while she plays. The following are some words she attempts to verbalize:

Thank You is "Dew"
Daddy is "Dadaaa"
Titi is "T T"
Please is "Psss"
Hi is "Hiiiiiii"
Bye is "Hiiiiiii"

There you have it - our princess is well on her way.
