She's even pairing words together now:
—mama up (or dada)
—more-more cracker (or whatever she wants 'more-more' of)
—ni-night dada (or mama)
—bye-bye dada (or mama)

So, there is the list of things that I could think of right now. Some things she has been doing for quite some time (and I think I've even done a post like this before a long time ago) and other things she just started to do. From what I read on Baby Center, Hannah seems to be on track with her developmental skills, etc. so that's all I really care about.

We're currently working on teaching her colors, numbers and the alphabet. :o)
