Penny said "I'm scared."
About a month ago for the first time Penny looked up at me while we were watching a show and said "I'm scared!" I don't remember what on Curious George had scared her, but it was the first time she ever put a word to her feelings. That was a big moment for me. I remember thinking how fast she was growing up. Just the idea that she was having an emotion and knew what that emotion was enough to put words to it and tell me. Now she tells me when she's happy, when shes upset, and always when she's hungry. I have to say my favorite was when she ran into the kitchen and announces "poodles scary me!" I love this girl. Having communicative 2 year olds is amazing. Just the fact that she has words for these things makes life so much easier.
