As far as preschool goes, she's been sad a few of the times that we've dropped her off, but according to the teachers, she's happy the rest of the day. They've commented on how she's very good at letting them know what she wants by nodding, shaking her head and pointing. I always ask her if she wants to go to preschool in the morning and she always nods. When I pick her up, I ask her things like if they napped, if they had lunch and if they went to the forest. She usually ponders for a second, then nods or shakes her head.
Her spoken vocabulary is growing. The newest addition is "kråka" (crow) and she makes the crow sound if you ask her to. She's switched from just sticking her tongue out like a cat when presented with one, to actually saying "katt". She also makes most of the common animal sounds. Some more of her recent words are: ball, there it is, "kolla" (check it out), fly, oj, tack (thanks), and wow. The other day, she was playing with something when all of a sudden she noticed that Andrew had put a shirt with wolves on. Her eyes got big as she pointed and exclaimed: "Wooow!".
She has started swimming lessons again. The first time back, it seemed as if she had forgot a lot of what she'd learned, but last time she was back in the game. However, she is a lot more vocal about when she doesn't want to do something now. A lot of: "nej, nej, nej, nej, nej, nej", followed by vigorous head shaking going on.
Her favorite toys at the moment are her blocks, legos, one of her large stuffed toys, her hammer and nail toy, her toy cart, crayons and stickers. Books are still a big draw too, as well as climbing anything and everything in sight. We sometimes let her watch videos on the computer and she seems to enjoy Shaun the Sheep, different wild animals and people dancing. Andrew also downloaded some apps for her to play with on his Ipod and that usually buys us a few more minutes of sleep in the morning. She likes playing hide and seek (although she only does the seek part) and chasing us.
On the days that she goes to preschool she doesn't get to sleep for as long as she does at home, so those days can get pretty rough right around dinner time. Overall, she's happy and full of energy and fun.
