Penny on her second birthday, June 25, 2014, as she observes everything in her domain. She keeps track of nearby FedEx and UPS trucks, often blocks away, airplanes overhead until they leave her sight, tells us when to awake, when to go to bed, and what time dinner is. Hates closed doors and usually finds a way to open them. Of course we encourage this independent 'voice'. She will always be our "baby girl".
