While Kaylee is starting to chatter away, her vocabulary is still quite small. However, we firmly believe if she could say anything, it would be "I'll do it myself!"
Holding hands? I don't think so.
Putting on my shoes? I'll give it my best shot.
You want to feed me? Think again.
I'll open my own door, thank you.
You want to hold my toothbrush? I've got 2 hands that work.
And probably the thing that upsets her the most...assistance climbing onto the couch. It doesn't matter if she's crying out in frustration because she just can't quite get that leg up. DO NOT try to lift her, give her a boost, or offer any type of support. It will be rejected immediately. And you did lift her up to the couch, she will climb down and start the whole process over.
Some may call it a stubborn streak. We like to think of it as determination.
