Lyla's Development (3 Years Old)

Oh, Lyla. She is our spitfire. She is full of life and loves to push the rules and limits. However, she does have a healthy fear of things like busy roads and deep water, thankfully. She is stubborn and sure of what she wants in life, and she doesn't appreciate when others get in her way (i.e. She screams when others get in her way). She is silly and loves to make others laugh. She makes lots of sound effects and noises, and she is loud (you can often find her making car noises and fart noises). She loves to dance and sing along with others. She has always done well when we drop her off with others... I'm thankful for how well she adapts! She plays really well on her own! She loves baby dolls and is the sweetest little mommy to watch when she plays with them. I always find it interesting to see this side of her personality next to her silly, crazier side.

Funny Things:
Admittedly, I'm just not as good anymore at writing down all the funny things now that I have four kids. But in general, Lyla tends to do funny things more than say funny things. She loves to make people laugh, so she will continue anything that can crack a laugh. This means we see her do lots of funny dance moves and she loves to make fart noises and spank her own bottom. There has to be one in every crowd, right? However, here are a few funny things she has said:

"I don't like shower. Shower get in my eyes. I like bath."
I was cleaning a crumb off her chin, and she said, "You cleaning my beard?"

Likes: her blankie, jumping on the trampoline, playing in lakes, fart noises, anything silly, baby dolls, balance bikes, her sisters
Dislikes: not getting her way, having something taken from her, broccoli
