Word Girl

Our Little is learning so many words so fast these days. She's a little parrot, spouting off cool words that she hears everyday. It's neat to hear her hear a word and copy it for the first time. Then over the next several days she perfects her new word.

Recently she's been picking up what I call command words, like "more," "milk," and "out". This confuses me because I assume that whenever she uses one of these words, she wants what she is requesting. However, when she says, "out" while in her high chair and I begin to remove her from the high chair, she grabs fistfuls of food like I'm depriving her of her meal and looks at me like, "what do you think you're doing lady!"

What's a mom to do? Though confusing at times, it's still precious to hear new little words come out of her sweet, syrup-kissed mouth. A new favorite of hers: "No!" That one is fun. Especially when it comes out with a southern drawl. Imagine a little Paula Deen yelling, "no" about twenty notches higher than her regular pitch and you've got my daughter.

On her vocab list as of today:
Daddy, Mommy, Nanny, Papaw, Grandpa, cracker, cookie, out, milk, more, I walk (the only word she uses "I" with so far), why, water, no, book, Jack, Mable, Jojo (for Josiah), home, bath. That's all I can think of for now, but a quite extensive list in my biased opinion.

Here's a fun picture of my little Word Girl in utter protest of coming inside on a cold winter's day. Daddy was outside hanging Christmas lights and she insisted that is where she must remain. She had no interest in being inside with Mommy even though Mommy was making yummy Christmas cookies. Daddy's girl.

Love that picture! Made me laugh! So many new words at this stage. In a few months, she'll be stringing them together! WOW! It's so fun to see little ones learn new things and then use them.

I forgot her two favorite words! She loves to say "hi" and "bye-bye." Oh yeah, there's also "outside" which is quickly becoming a new favorite.

Document some of her funny pronunciations. I wish I had done more of that with Ian. Now that he says the word correctly, it almost makes me sad. :-)

Aww... I didn't think about that. Her pronunciations are so cute too. Like "hi" is "hi-eee". And "cracker" sounds like "cwack-o". My little chica. :)

I love it when babies say words. I can't wait till Josiah starts talking. It will be funny to hear what he has to say. So one question how did she get the word Mable?

Sheldon's parents' dog's name is Mable. She loves that dog. She called Jack Mable for a week after we came home from San Angelo.
