1. He likes to dress up. Leotards, tutus, swimsuits, high heels, etc.
2. He can correctly name the majority of the Disney princesses.
3. He comes to you with his favorite blanket wadded up and held so gingerly in his arms, and says sweetly, "mom, this is my mermaid baby".
On an unrelated note, here's a video. Actually, at the end it becomes related. Anyway, Alexis attends story time at the local library once a week and the lady who does it is really awesome. The past few weeks she's given out short poems for the kids to memorize, and if they come back the next week and tell it to her she gives them a piece of candy. Last weeks poem was about a giraffe and Alexis had no trouble memorizing it. I thought you'd enjoy seeing her say it. She was not in the best mood when I made her do it, which explains the sadness in her eyes. But cute nonetheless.
