Somewhat emotionally sensitive at times
openly emotional, you ALWAYS know exactly how she is feeling!!
serious at times when she is focusing
short-fused - but she is just a toddler!
assertive - we always joke that she will never need assertiveness training classes, she might teach them though
calm at times but not overly so
moody (very happy one minute, bummed the next) - also might just be a toddler thing
And definitely show-offy and loves attention!
