This first picture is from a couple of nights ago. For her birthday Amanda got a play "purse" that plays music, teaches numbers, and has several items she can take in and out of it, including play money, a mirror, a bracelet, keys... and lipstick. After her party, my sister tried to show her how to "put on" the lipstick, but she'd just laugh and hand it back to have Ilene do it again. Then the other night, she sat down to play and started babbling to herself, while "putting on" the lipstick! Priceless!
This is last night. I was making dinner (stirring some rice in a pot), and Amanda got into the cupboard I leave open for her and took out a wooden spoon and bowl. She "stirred" just like mommy!
