This is Katie's new favorite word over the past few days. I don't remember it starting so early with Michael. If Todd or I tell her to do something, she will often ask "why?". And it doesn't stop there, it goes on to another question and another question until one of us finally breaks and says "I don't know" or "why not?".

It's pretty funny to hear Katie asking "why" in her little voice with such expression. She is truly inquisitive and the why often precedes a full sentence. Some of her favorites are "why is Michael crying?", "why is Daddy driving", or "why is David sleeping?".

Once she starts with the "why", then the "where" follows. She also likes to ask "what happened Mommy?" It's pretty awesome to have these kind of conversations with her. And it's even more awesome to hear her engage in conversations with Michael. These are the days I have been looking forward to and it's so sweet seeing the two of them talk.

Sounds like she's going to keep you on your toes. It's interesting hearing about how different raising Katie has been than Michael was. You've got a fun mix with the two of them.
