Yesterday I was showing a photo comparison of Loren from Disneyland last June and Disneyland a few weeks ago to a coworker and she noted how much she had changed and said “just wait until she starts talking”. I giggled a little and said “she actually talks a lot….we just don’t always know what shes saying.” Melissa and I used to keep running list in our heads of everything she could say, but now the list is too long and we can’t remember everything.
Here’s what we could remember…but I’m certain we’re forgetting stuff!
Dog (Still sounds like Da!)
Poop (usually said as poo poo)
Help (finally sounds like HELP and not UP!)
Blocks (this is a brand new one)
Boston (which really sounds like Bas?)
Erik (I wish I could relay what this one sounds like – errrrk…is the closest I have)
Grandpa (this one and grandma are rare and she usually only says it when they are around!)
Cupcake (After Aunt Kitty’s birthday last week she picked up on this one…it MAY be because she was allowed to have cake for breakfast!)
Here’s the photo comparison we were looking at. The one on the left was the end of June/beginning of July last year celebrating her cousin Samantha’s birthday (you can tell she wasn’t even walking yet because she has fabric shoes on!) and the right is from a few weeks ago when Uncle Erik was visiting, she was such a big girl rushing over to give Mickey a big kiss on the nose! What a difference 9 months makes.
You guys, we’re #18! Everyday I log on to Top Mommy Blogs expecting that we’ve stayed in the same spot (or even fallen!) and I’m so delighted to see that we just keep moving up!!! Thank you so much for your votes!
