I love that I can have full conversations with Hannah now.  Sometimes they get very interesting and I would love to know what goes on in her mind.  She is still in the "why?" phase and I hear that about 500 times a day.  We can have a 10min conversation that started with "Daddy has to go to work" or "Let's go to the store" followed by "Why?"and so on...... It can be quite exhausting to answer all her questions. 
I am also realizing a lot of things I must say a lot, because Hannah repeats it.  She says "you are kidding me", "oh my gosh", "good job mama", "oh man" ect.  I really need to pay more attention to what I say.  Some of her other favorite things to say are: "Bye bye.  Have a good day.  See you tomorrow" or "Thanks for coming".
Here is an example of one of our recent conversations:
Hannah: Be quiet Mama.  Ashley is sleeping. 
Me: Where?
Hannah: Over there. Be really quiet.
Me: OK. 
Hannah: Ashley awake.  I go see Ashley.
Me: You are going to London?
Hannah: Yes. Megan's car go to London.
Me: That will be a long drive
Hannah: Grandma Jeannie come too.  Eat chocolate in Iowa
It is a little bit of a random conversation, but it just makes me smile.
I also love her imagination.  She is very good at pretend play and turns everything into a store.  She likes to sell ice cream, chocolate and cheese.  Her fruits and veggies are sold out a lot (at least the ones she doesn't like).  She makes a lot of dinners in her kitchen and we always have to make sure we blow on our food, because it is hot. Or she tells me "Be careful, it is spicy".

The other day Hannah prayed: "Dear God.  Send snow.  Amen"
