The words "so much" seem to describe Kate these days. She's just overflowing with things to tell us about. It seems her vocabulary exploded over the weekend while I was gone. Maybe it just took time away from her for me to notice how much she's growing up. She now recognizes when someone is sad and even that actions have consequences (like "No, we don't hit", "Yeah, Mommy sad"). The other day she gave me a big hug and said "So much." I think this is her way of saying I love you, as I am always telling her I love her 'so much'. I've been trying to get her to tell me that she loves me, but I didn't expect her to say it that way and it was precious. Now I see her hugging the dogs and telling them "so much". Needless to say, some of the effect was worn off by that scene. But, it's still nice to hear her tell me that.
For entertainment's sake, here's a funny picture of one of the wacky things she does lately.
She will walk around with the flashlight shining in her face saying "Need sunglasses!"
