Word of the Day

This marks the first of what will be a series of posts....similar to Wordless Wednesday, Friday Fun, or Sunday Finest which make frequent appearances here.  Adeline is adding words to her vocabulary all the time, and I have not been so good about documenting the whens and whats of her milestones in the past few months.  So, when she learns a new word, I am going to try to be better about keeping track.....thus "Word of the Day" makes its debut.

This edition of Word of the Day is dedicated to the Bliss Family, because I know Adeline's latest word will make you all VERY happy.  We were sitting in the family room playing the other day when that oh so familiar hum of jet engines sound overhead.  Adeline says, "eh pay".  I was pretty sure she was trying to say "airplane," so I said, "Yes, honey, that IS an airplane.  Good job!"  Later that day, our friend, Christie, was watching Adeline for a few hours for me.  When I picked her up, Christie said, "By the way, I'm pretty sure Adeline said "airplane" today."  Yes, yes she did.....I know the Bliss family is erupting into a happy dance because it is CLEARLY your influence that brought on this new word (E is an F-15 pilot, and their boys N and e love all things airplane).

Oh, how sweet is she! Love it when they start talking in their cute way!

Yeah! Good girl. Ah the conversations you and e could have. "airplane!" "airplane" "grilled cheese" "yogurt". Yes, maybe you will share life long loves of aeronautics and dairy products... By the way, we thought of you the other day because e's new word is quesadilla or "de-da". Grilled cheese, quesadillas, you're a perfect match!

That girls is so sweet! i love her words - i always find it interesting the words they pick up. it sometimes can be something random instead of useful things like up, help, etc...

i am looking forward to more of your word of the day posts!

These milestones are just the best with the first child. Every day is an adventure to see what they have learned.

Once they hit their teen years you kinda wish they would stop talking for a year or two, hehe. Just kidding, I loved yacking with my girls and finding out all the goods on them.

Has she said the word "elephant" yet? Hopefully she's gotten to ride on an elephant in Thailand. Maybe her next word will be "ice cream" (or two words) since she seems to like that a lot! I would be so proud!

Maybe she'll say "eh pway" soon! LOL!

Oh, and I love love LOVE the word of the day blog idea... I might have to steal it when Caden embarks on his journey through the world of language! :) We're still just saying Mama right now though.

Can't wait to hear about your trip! I love that you used the new predate blog posting feature to keep us entertained while you were away! You're so thoughtful!
