Katie Holmes says Suri is 'very strong, and bright'

In a Monday morning appearance on Good Morning America to promote her new film Mad Money, actress Katie Holmes said daughter Suri, turning 21-months on Friday, is "delightful." Katie told Diane Sawyer that Suri’s first words were ‘mama’ and ‘dada,’ followed quickly by "everything else!" Said Katie of Suri,

She’s a great mimic … And now she’s talking all of the time. So she’s saying, ‘Who’s that? Who’s that?’

Diane then treated Katie to a clip of a previous interview with Katie’s own mom, Kathy, who said her daughter was a "handful" as a toddler. Katie used to insist on choosing her own outfits for preschool, and Katie revealed that Suri — whom she describes as "very strong, and bright" — is also now picking out some of her own clothes to wear each day. The 29-year-old told Diane that Suri isn’t the only one having fun, however.

We were at FAO Schwartz last night.  We got in and we went and were running around and eating ice cream and playing with the toys.  Tom and I were playing with a lot of the toys ourselves.  It’s a lot of fun for the adults!  We were there for hours.

Suri is the first child for Katie and husband Tom Cruise; Tom also has two children, Isabella, 15, and Connor, 12, from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.
