New stuff

Somewhere along the way, our little baby sprouted into a little girl... She is so smart and interactive and just plain hilarious these days!!! Today, she started saying "Please" instead of just whining for something... She says "Thank you" and "You're Welcome" all the time!!! She doesn't always get it in the right context - she'll hand you something and say "thank you" or you give her something and she says "welcome!" but I'll take all the manners I can get!!! Some other words she is now saying:

  • Puppy (pupa)

  • Juice

  • Bath

  • Night night

  • Hi

  • Bye bye

  • Momma

  • Daddy

  • Mine!

  • Nice

  • Bump

  • Bird

  • Duck

  • Eat

  • Bad Dog

  • Shoes

  • Clock

  • Plane (Airplane - but mostly when she sees one, she points and says "car!")

  • Truck

  • Car

  • Ouch!

  • Yuck!

We spend a lot of time reading the board books with the pictures of things. She can identify almost all of the pictures for the letters A-D - then she gets antsy and tosses the book on the floor... I don't think we've ever made it past the "F" page... She knows some of her ABC's already!!! Tonight, she laid down on the changing table and sang "A-B-C-D-E-F"! I couldn't believe it!!! Yesterday, I was singing the abc's for her and stopped every now and again and she chimed right in with E and H at the right points! She can count to 3. She can ALMOST put her own shoes on (she has gotten one on one time, but then took it back off immediately).

Some of her favorite things right now are: playing outside, playing with Jake, building block towers (she will sit with her mega blocks and find all the ones that have the same amount of bumps adn put them all together. She even puts them in patterns sometimes which seems like it is probably just an accident, but when you watch her, she will put them together, then take them apart and rearrange the colors until she gets it exactly like she likes it and usually it ends up in some sort of pattern... it's amazing!), playing chase with Daddy - really just hanging out with daddy in general... She is so not a fan of Mommy right now, which kind of breaks my heart, but it is always so sweet to watch the two of them interact. :)

Anyway, that's all I can think of right now. Here is a picture for you. :)
