35 months old

Julia sings "True Colors" at the top of her lungs. And she's actually starting to be in tune on most notes. This is music to her musical momma's ears. I was worried she'd never get it.

And she dances! I tried to share a video of her shaking it to the popcorn song (Thom's favorite) but apparently it was fringing on the owner's rights so I deleted it from youtube .... but last night we put "True Colors" on repeat while Thom was shopping. She twirled and chopped and kicked in true Elaine style for an entire hour!

We're (constantly) in a growing season ... she's currently in the 95th percentile for height and weight. She wakes with leg pains (we still debate whether they're real or not), she eats everything in sight (and there are only healthy foods in sight) and she towers over children her age at the playground.

She's a bit aggressive as well. I guess being my daughter and all ..... Poor Carson. He's the little boy at playgroup that keeps her attention. He has to ask Thom to tell her to stop chasing him. Yup. She's my daughter.

I've figured out a good hair routine and we've been without shampoo for over a year now. We're very pleased with the results.

Her interest in tv shows is way too high and I try to curb her appetite for them every chance I get. Tonight I'm setting up the sewing machine in her room to encourage her to play while I keep my hands and eyes busy on Christmas presents.

We love our little Ju-la-la.
