  1. What great lists! You'll enjoy looking back at these over the years. I love the one about counting past 28!

  2. So, does she get a dog? heehee
    Doesn't it always seem like these milestones are so far away, and then before you know it, they have happened. That's how I feel right now with my youngest just starting school. Time goes so fast.
