The first was following my brother's birthday party at my house. Macey absolutely loves to hear everyone sing "happy birthday". She runs around in circles dancing and then requests to hear it "again". After everyone left our house following my brother's party, I heard Macey singing quietly. It took me a minute to decipher the words, but when I realized she was singing "happy birthday" to my brother, I had to grab my camera.
Macey has been counting for a while now. She counts clearly to twelve, and then beyond that she just kind of repeats "umm-teen" over and over again. It was in the past few weeks, though, that I began to notice that she was deliberately counting objects-- and doing it accurately! Of course, being the proud mom that I am, I had to gather some video evidence of this accomplishment.
