You are 29 months old today.
I cannot tell you how many times during the day you utter those words. Countless. Innumerable. Endless. Incalculable. Infinite. Scads. Umpteen. Wad. Legion. (Let me introduce you to synonyms...and repetition for emphasis.)
Along with this contrariness has come endless testing of boundaries followed by the cheesiest flirty grin.
By contrast, you also say Thank You almost 99% of the time. And for the first time, when I said, "I love you Lucy," you said, "I yaa uuu Mama". OMG. Break my heart will you?!

I believe what you are responding to the most are the funny sounds and rhymes as you will repeat them back while laughing and bouncing up and down.
We went to the zoo earlier this month and I must say you were enthralled.
Like picking dandelions.
And when you crash, you crash hard.
That is your gift to me every day and for that, I thank you. My darling, daring, brave little girl.
