New Words!

Yesterday was a good day for new words!

First, I bought Trident gum. One of Anna's favorite treats. One that I don't mind giving her, either. ;) Anyhow, she kept coming to me and saying, "Gahm!" She wanted gum! What a bright girl!

But that's not as amazing as this next thing, because there were no prompts from me. (You know, telling her the word first.) She brought her Sesame Street shapes book to me and sat on my lap. She opened it up and on one page there are pictures of a 'ball', a 'window', a 'book', and a 'door'. She pointed to the ball and said, "Ball".... I already knew she knew that one. She pointed at the book and said, "Booah." I knew that she knew that one already. Then she pointed at the door and said, "door" and KNOCKED on it, then she pantomimed opening the door! I was blown away! I'd never heard her say 'door' before and I've never pointed at it and said, "door", either. I dragged her into the living room and tried to have her reenact it for everyone. *sigh* She only knocked on it, but wouldn't say door. lol. :D

It's amazing when they hit that 18-20 month mark and their language takes off. Caleb is just over two and now he talks so well! His recent cuteness is instead of saying "More" when he wants to keep doing something like eat, or drink or "again" when he wants to be tossed in the air or spun around, he always say "More-again! More-Again". It's so darn adorable!

Yah, I have the same wavy hair problem. I want to grow it out but, it takes so long to straighten it and it doesn't look good down if it's not straightened. I keep hoping if it gets long enough, it will look ok down. Like I said, I'm talking REALLY short. My friend Tamara has 3 boys and wanted something super easy. She has to straighten it but, it takes like 2 minutes. It looks so cute on her but, it's a brave move, lol. I'm sure you will find something that suits you.

It is so exciting when they start saying new words. It is fun to watch them try to figure out how to say words and then their reaction when they do say it. What a fun stage she is in!

So sweet!! Our Ladybug is at the babble stage. It's so cute! I think there are words in there, but I can't recognize any yet. She's saying mama, dada, and all done. I love this stage! (Well, I've loved all the stages so far.)

My little Sam is like that, too. He is starting to talk a bit more and won't say things when I ask him to, wouldn't want to show off. Or more likely, wouldn't want to COOPERATE.
