You are now exhibiting signs of such intellectual curiosity and the things you are able to remember and make associations with are amazing. For example at the moment nana is having lots of visitors at her house and as soon as they arrive you ask them 'is that your car' or 'where's your car' to which one of your great uncles or Judy will respond by pointing to their car. If you're not there when that person arrives as soon as we arrive at nana's you then tell me 'David's here' or 'Johan's car'. Polly was astounded the other day when we arrived at north sydney council for my ceremony and you were in the car park with her where you were checking out all the cars and announced 'grandad's here' and 'Julie and David' and much to her surprise they were all there.
You are still such a little socialite and will talk to everyone you meet. Your favourite question to ask is 'what's your name' to which almost everyone will respond by telling you their name and having a chat. The other day we took your dolly to the pool for a swim and you were chatting to a lady and her little girl. The mummy asked what your name was and you responded by telling her your name and then she asked the name of your dolly to which your response was 'mine'.
At the moment you also have a fascination with emergency vehicles which you call 'ne-nors' and every time we see or hear one we all have to make the noise. Your favourite game at the moment is to play pretend that you are driving and also play acting going shopping. When I ask you what we need shopping your answer is always 'salad'. I love watching your imagination play at the moment where you are talking to yourself and some imaginary friend (the other day was Nicholas). You talk to them and tell them off and take them shopping with you. You also love to go on adventures around the garden where I hold your hand and we climb the mountain and pass dragons which we have to feed with cake to keep them away. Your favourite book at the moment is duck duck goose which was a Christmas present from your teacher at daycare. It was really strange as I'd only read it to you once then one night right before bed you said to me mummy read duck duck goose and now we read it all the time. Another of your favourite games is take all my clothes off and run around naked. You quite off de-clothe and then run around on nanas balcony saying 'hello, my name's Sienna' to whoever will listen'.
You are still having trouble with P's and H's but weirdly enough you only seem to get confused when its with names it's almost as though you know it annoys people and think its funny. Like my friend Polly has become your friend Holly, and your cousin Heston is still Peston. However with all other words beginning with P and H you seem not to confuse them.
You still really love you to go swimming and we go at least 3-4 times a week. You are so good now with your back floaty on and easily manage to paddle paddle and kick kick without any support you came make it a full width of the pool by yourself. At swim class today your teacher said that she thinks you are ready to move up to the next class but it is in the pool on your own again so I'm just trying to decide if you are ready for that?
