She had her face painted and got a balloon animal hat made for her. She played on the Bounce area and went through the petting zoo. We collected a ton of balloons, but only went home with one. I have to say that the weirdest mascot we saw today was the shampoo guy from Great Clips. She liked them all and was tired by the end of the day.
The Lego exhibit was really neat. They had a replica of the track and one of Lucas Oil Stadium.

Afterwards I let her glue the collection on to a piece of cardboard. In reality, she was more excited about squeezing the glue out of the bottle than putting the things on the board. I helped a lot by pressing things down so they wouldn't fall off later. She did like sprinkling the birdseed on at the very end and would have done that forever had I let her continue.

Mother's Day 2008
Wow, she has hair this year! We went to Erick's mom's house yesterday for Mother's Day, and then went out to eat. Piper and I hung out together all afternoon and went for a walk around the neighborhood. She is really into examining every little thing now on the ground. We left no stone unturned.

We made another trip to the zoo, and this time they actually had the Encounters exhibit open where Piper could interact with the goats. She loved following them around and petting them. She even tried to climb on one of their backs, but I caught her just in time.

Age (in months, or years and months): 19 months
Physical abilities: independently rides her tricycle now, jumping with both feet off the ground. I noticed she was doing this on the bed and couch, and it took forever to get her to jump for me on just the ground, but she can do it Yay! Can climb the curved ladders at the park.
Speech/language: vocabulary, sentence length, etc So much progress here. I can understand her more often than not, better pronunciation as well as another big increase in vocabulary. Usually 1 word, but occasionally we get 2-3 word sentences. Increased love of opposites right now.
Reading/pre-reading: becoming more focused on letters, tries to name them but still only knows a few. She does very well at reading her books and naming things in the pictures
Number stuff: not much change, still tries to count but not using right numbers. Understands one more or just two when I am giving her something.
Other cognitive stuff: puzzles, reasoning, etc: Very much into matching and sorting things still
Creativity: Starting to tell me what her pictures are- mostly circles still
Imagination: nothing new, just pretend play with her dolls, stuffed animals, and kitchen. She loves her Mrs. Potato Head she got for Easter, and is also really into the small plastic animals like you get at Michael’s or Target.
Social: she had a couple of social interactions this month at her cousins’ birthday party and at Gymboree. Can be very quiet in public around people she doesn’t know until she gets warmed up.
Character/personality: loving, silly, determined and persistent
Anything else/other: we’ve started to play hide and seek and she thinks it’s very funny. I will say that it is a little tedious to “find” her in the same place over and over. She needs a new hiding spot. :)
