You will still copy any words that we want you to say, so it's impossible to write all those down.
It is also getting impossible to keep track of what you are saying without copying and the words you are signing.
Here are the words you say now on your own, not just copying (or at least as many as I can remember). Now, I'm not saying that you pronounce all these perfectly or anything.
New in the past two months.
Daddy with the eeeeee sound at the end
thank you (much better than before)
Mommy with the eeeeeee sound at the end
Mmmmhmmmmm (for yes)
Older Words, or ones I've already mentioned in the last few entries.
dog - but this has been for months and months. I guess I just forgot to write it in.
Toboo (It sounds more like boot-boo. It's pretty darn cute.)
hello (you already said and signed 'hi', but you've started saying 'hello' on your phone)
stroller (many details to follow on that)
all done (like when a DVD is over or a book ends)
up/down (for the teeter totter and 'the kids on the bus')
good bye (really you say 'good good')
thank you (sounds more like kay-q)
Papa (for Grandpa - Ken)
Gampa (for Grand-Dan)
Mum and Mamaaaaa (very Italian-like)
Here are the animal sounds you currently say.
Cow - brooo
Cat - mow
Dog - woof woof and you 'pant' now too!!!
Monkey - uh uh (instead of ooh ooh)
Elephant - pfhhh (like a trunk noise, hard to explain)
Chicken - cluck cluck (you actually click your tongue)
Sheep - baaa
Rooster - cock doo
Bear - Raa
Lion - Raa
Rabbit - it's like a kissing/eating sound KWIM?
***you refuse to say quack or oink****
You are signing lots more now too. You are also stringing signs together like 'more milk please'. You think this is pretty neato. You'll copy a whole bunch of the signs of the signing DVDs when the kids are doing them, but here are some of the ones you'll initiate and do on your own.
Newer Signs in the last two months.
Older Signs, or signs I've already mentioned in the last few posts.
tickle (you made this one up)
-A bunch of others you've made up to try and tell me specifically which DVD you'd like, but darned if I can figure them out. This is frustrating.
dvd / sign
bib (made this one up yourself)
Change (you'll sign change if you're poopy or just on the change table if I ask you to)
More AJ Updates
You are still loving books. In fact, when you aren't ready to go sleep, I can hear you in your room getting out books to read in your bed.
You are way more aware of body parts than I realised. I hadn't really been harping on those too much, but when I asked you a couple months ago where everything was, you could point to them. You don't really say the body parts though. You'll copy it if I say it, but if I ask you, what's this, you don't usually tell me.
You can point to yours or my...
and probably more!!
You love to count. I start and say 1 and you'll say 2, then I say 3, 4, and you'll say 5, and I'll say 6, and you'll say 7, 8, 9, 10 (but not usually all four of those in a row). You'll say the last ones after I say a number. Like you'll say 7 and I'll say 8 and you'll say 9, etc or the opposite.
You are a super duper fork and spoon efficiando. If you'd only open your mouth a little more! Then you'd be perfect!
You love Mummy's carrot strawberry shakes for breakfast on daycare days!
You got to have a fun visit at Koko's playplace to see Aili and her sister.
If I ask who's in Mummy's tummy, you say, "Dexter". You will also point to the crib if I ask where baby-Dexter will sleep.
You had a great time at the PNE at the beginning of September. You were a champ even though you didn't have a nap all day!
You are back at daycare at Dia's and loving it. You also go with Auntie Erica and Jack once and twice a week. You love that too.
You're still using the potty, but it's impossible to fully potty train you since you aren't home 2 to 3 days a week.
You are saying and signing 'thank you' much better now without me having to prompt you. That's been really sweet.
You walked right into Mill Lake on one of our walks. YUCK!
You LOVE to colour. You are a pro at holding your crayons and felts and you love to actaully colour things, not just scribble the whole page. You will colour a hat, then hands, etc. It's still scribble, of course, but strategic scribble.
You love to pant like a dog.
You love to say mmmmmmhmmmmm, for yes.
You love to say 'oops'.
And I venture to say that you can't wait to move into your new room. You just love the trucks on the walls.
You can point to some of the colours and say the colour, particularly purple, yellow, and blue, but unless it's purple, you aren't right all the time.
We didn't get to go camping this summer, but you enjoyed a trampoline and campfire night at Gram's.
We may go camping for Thanksgiving.
You also got your bottom two eye teeth, so the tooth count is now 16.
I went on a girls' weekend to Kelowna and you got to stay home with Daddy. You had a good time.
That's all I can think of right now.
