Liv just put me in timeout and told me I couldn't write my paper.  This prompted me to write down a few of my favorite things she says now.  There have been so many since I last posted that I will never be able to remember, so I thought I could at least put down the ones that come to mind.

She usually calls me "mommy," but often refers to me as "Mommy Kimberly" or just "Kimberly" especially when we are dropping her off at the babysitters.  I also get "Mommy Domino."  Domino is a horse.  The first name status also extends to Tyler, who is referred to as "Daddy Tyler," "Tyler," or, my favorite, "Tyler Madsen." 

Liv told me today, "I love you forever, mommy." She also told me today, "I like your pretty hair."

Last week when we woke up, she asked me, "Remember me?  Do you remember my name?"  I told her, "Your name is Liv!"  She answered, "Yep, that's right."  She says, "Yes, that's right" fairly often, and in such a matter-of-fact tone. 

Today she said, "I like triangles. They're awesome." 

She is SOOOOO excited to go to preschool.  One day she was so excited that she went out the front door and took off across the parking lot "to go to preschool."  I caught up with her and we went on a walk clear up to the high school.  I still wonder where exactly she thought preschool was that day.  Now she knows that her preschool is over at BUGS, and that she gets to go in the fall.  She gets to do "play gymnastics and soccer."  She asks everyday if she can go to preschool!

She also told me once that she couldn't go to Lydia's because she needed to stay and work on her computer.  She also will say, "Bye, mom.  I'm going to class!"  After a conference I went to on religion in Eastern Europe, she and Tyler came to get me.  Since then, she's asked I am going to conference, if I'm done with my conference, and if she is coming to get me from my conference. 

We've also been teaching her Russian phrases, and she is doing so great with them!

She sings all of the time and loves dancing around the room.
