The house that Simone built

Simone asked for some paper, then spent a few minutes ripping sections out of it.  It ended up looking like this:



She showed it to me and said: "I made a house!" And then pointed to the upper-section and said, "Santa comes in here."

Steve asked her, "What do you want Santa to bring you?"

Rubbing her fingers together: "Money for me." 

I...LOVE...this little girl.  Stinkin' love her.  She's such a character...so  much personality and life...in this wee little 2-year-old body.

She turned 2 this month, and I can officially say there are NO babies in my house.  I keep thinking she's a baby still, and then she does something like this. 

And then she asked me to cut some ears out of cardboard for her.  I don't know what to say to that one. 

But I cut her some ears out of cardboard.  I try to embrace the process.
