Linna is back to eating semi-regular meals, but a mom is always going to worry when her kid doesn't eat. I know if she's hungry, she will eat, but I still worry. You should see the look on AJ's face whenever I start talking about Linna's eating. He gets so annoyed. One of Linna's favorites right now is chicken and rice, and she eats that with a veggie most nights. However, we have been struggling to get her to eat her veggies. I know I should mix it up a bit, but when I know she'll eat the chicken and rice, it's just easier. Oofta, I've totally turned into THAT mom. She's not wasting away, and she still has chunky thighs, so it's time to stop worrying, right?!
Linna is also starting to put two word "sentences" together, sometimes three. Her new sayings are "I don't know", which actually sounds like "I doe-ing", and "help you", which I believe means "help me". She repeats everything, and I beam when she points to an object and can say what it is. She's learning new words every day. She also still loves to swim, and has learned a couple new "tricks" at the pools here in Singapore. AJ got her to start jumping into the pool, and she will kick her legs when she's doing a back-float. She is such a little fish, so thank goodness we're back in Singapore, where she can swim every day.

She's still doing three-hour naps, and sleeping from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. She literally walks to her bed when she's tired and asks us to put her in it. She'll have an "off" day every now and then, but for the most part she is a really good sleeper. Linna loves watching Barney, Sesame Street, and her new favorites are Winnie the Pooh (she calls him "Pooh") and Mickey Mouse (she calls this "Moose").
Other than that, Linna just loves being a kid. She's constantly running around, playing with her toys, and making messes. She still drools ALL the time, her hair is getting really long (and shaggy), and she's enjoying the hot weather in Singapore. We miss everyone back home in Minnesota!
