Kieren Joy Prince is loving life right now and soaking up her last days as a one-year-old in many fun ways (she will turn two on January 20th)! We have a language EXPLOSION in our house and Kieren is talking all the time. She is putting words together in sentences and is regularly asking questions or making statements. She LOOOOVES to talk (where did she get that??). Lately she really likes talking about Dora the Explorer and 'boots' her sidekick, as those were her favorite gifts for Christmas from Abuelita and Papa (my mom and dad). We talk a lot about food, we 'cook' together in the kitchen, talk about animals, oh and OFTEN talk about her friends and those in our life. She is very happy and tells us often that she is 'funny.' She loves to make faces, scream, and run around. SO FUN! She climbs and jumps and just loves being a kid. She is also learning a lot from us and being at school. She sings 'Twinkle Twinkle" and "Happy Birthday" and then a couple other songs we don't know that she must have learned at school. She can also count up to twelve now and does that frequently throughout the day. 2010 has been a challenging year in so many ways for Kieren, but I feel like she is brave and strong and full of so much joy! We are thankful and having a blast every day!
