Allie loved to play in the water this month. She went to the beach, swam in the pool and lake, and ran through the sprinklers. Allie and I spent a lot of time together this month because I was off from school. Allie started swim lessons and gymnastics. She LOVED to go to gymnastics to jump on the trampoline. At swim class, it took a few lessons for Allie to get used to the pool and the routine. She was very unsure of everything at first, but soon fell in love with swimming and looked forward to going. Allie also went to story time every week at the library. She followed directions well and enjoyed listening to stories and dancing to music. Allie started talking in phrases and complete sentences. She liked to do whatever Todd or I did, like brush her teeth, eat what we ate, and repeat whatever we said. Allie often said, "I need...(dust, brush teeth, wipe, etc)."
