Can't ever get her to keep her own on in the sun,
but mom's hats in the house... apparently way more fun.
She's 22 months on monday, so close to 2! Here are some of her favorite words right now:
-Hi, Bye Bye, Mommy, Daddy (Dad),“where’d _____ go?”, “there it is”, uh oh, oh no, wow, woah, wee! (These are the old-pro ones she's been saying for a while... the following are with a little bit newer confidence.)
-Shark (today for the first time but really clear) , Duck (especially Donald), Dog, Bird, Mouse (Mickey), Sheep, Pig, Ball, Tree, Car, Plane, Choo choo (as in trains, but she hasn't said train yet, she usually does it when she sees a truck- hasn't said truck either, calls it a car, and then does the hand motion and the "choo choo"... I don't know, but it's pretty cute), Balloons (aboons), Bike (after she calls it a car and I correct her), Shoe (usually wants them put on and taken off, no where in-between, like perhaps on her feet), Star, Nose, Mouth, Chin, Toes, Cheese (only says it for cheddar, suddenly over the cheese sticks after my last stock up from Costco- of course), Apple (appy), Eggs (with surprising enthusiasm, even after I started sneaking in the spinach, thank you Missy),Berries (followed by a very smily "mmmmmm"), Show (usually in a very desperate voice with puppy dog eyes pointing at the TV... sigh, what have I done?)
It's true what they say, it seemed like one day she decided she'd finally give us the pleasure of hearing some of the MANY things she was busy storing away in her mind. It is SO fun to realize how MUCH she understands and what a smart, funny, coy, AMAZING little kid she is. SO excited (and a little terrified) to see her as a big sister. I'm hoping I can slow her down for a moment and get her a little more interested in her dolls so she'll think helping me with a little one is fun. We'll see.
