Daddy calls you the sticky bandit, because you take everything...the remote, our cell phones, tablets...and RUN! You are lucky you are so cute and funny! You are a little ham! You make the cutest, funniest faces, and they are usually on cue. I think you may have inherited the acting gene! You are starting to show your frustration at not being allowed or able to do some things. You definitely have a dramatic side! Your sweet, happy, social, loving, friendly, easy-going personality is what stands out. You can charm anybody with your sweet grin!
