Big girl chair

Caroline has officially graduated from high chair to big girl chair (at least, when we're at home).

Yes, that's coffee in her little cup.  She likes to have a cup (or two... or three) in the mornings with her breakfast.

In other news, we find to our astonishment that she has learned to:

--- Count to ten

--- Sight recognize capital letters

Now, she's not 100% reliable on either of these things - she often skips "5", for example - but we think that these skills are pretty incredible in a child who's only a bit more than two years old AND only been exposed to English for about seven months.

Another thing she's done recently that bowled us over was tossing an empty drink bottle into the recycle bin without being told.

We're very proud of our remarkable little girl!


  1. She is getting so big! It is amazing how much she has grown. I love that she is having coffee!! Lia loves tea!!! BUT it has to be in her Chinese tea cup if its hot and a BIG cup if it's iced tea

    1. Yes, it's astonishing how fast she's grown. My concern is that she's pretty smart and will very soon be outwitting me! (she's already working on charming me to get what she wants... which usually works)

    1. It makes me happy: *I* will be the one suggesting "tea parties", and I won't have to pretend to drink from an empty cup or pretend to eat plastic cake and cookies.
