Her speech is REALLY taking off. She is repeating words we say, and sometimes saying words we didn't even know to try...
The other day, we were having grilled cheese and soup for lunch. She has known the sign for "more please" for over a month, and she was making that gesture with her hands. I said, "More, please what, honey? Do you want more grilled cheese?" To which she replied, "gill chee." Are you kidding me?!?! That has since become one of her favorite things to say. We'll have to try to catch it on video.
Other words in her vocabulary are....mama, daddy, more (she's known the sign for several weeks, but she started saying the word this week), uh oh, hi, ball, book (started that one today), banana (nana), milk, Amen (also one she picked up on her own. She seems to know when we say, "In Jesus name," "Amen" is going to follow), bye bye. She mimics other words, but these are the ones she uses on a daily basis.
Oh, she also knows that a sheep says, "baa."
We are working on where her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and tummy are. She gets them right inconsistently. Her nose seems to be the hardest to find.
I mentioned in this post that she is learning to give kisses. That skill is also improving, but she still reserves the right to give kisses when SHE wants to. She now adds a mmmm ma sound when she plants her little lips on you. So cute!!! Of course, I follow her around all day saying, "Give mama kisses!!!" I just love when she gives me some lovin'.
