On the eve of Little L’s second birthday, and while passing the time as her cake bakes in the oven, I just wanted to write about all the words she knows before actually turning 2. What got me thinking of this was that Oldest did not say alot before she turned 2. I used to ask her all the time when was she going to start talking.  Now, I can’t get her to be quiet, but it’s all good! 🙂

So here are a few words that she can say and has been saying for awhile. *clears throat*
Momma, Dadda, Sissy, Gush (what she calls her grandma, I have no idea where she got it), Poppo, (the dog, Appollo), hi, hey, guys, ball, shoe, sock, all her body parts, outside, on, off, light, dark, bathroom, sleep, tuck, (which can either be truck or stuck), duck, fish, horsie, dog, mow (for cat),  fall, showie (shower), wawie (water), paci, cari (short for her little buddy she carries around which is a stuffed carrot.), eat, and of course milka (milk). I know that there are more that I am forgetting.

She started learning her colors and can say everyone of them, but if you ask her what the color of an object is she will always say Orange. But it is so cute how she says it, she kinda squishes it together and it sounds like she is from Louisiana.  I think orange is her favorite color too. Her buddy, Carrot, is orange and she loves orange popsicles.

She can also say numbers 1, 2 5, and 8. And a few of her letters. We were working on her saying that she was 2 years old earlier today. She says, “Hey guys, I 2!”  🙂

*This is also my 200th blog post! Can you believe it? Thank you all for reading! 😉 *

Oh my Little L, you are learning so much. You learned your body parts over a month ago, now you are actually saying most of the names to match. It’s so wonderful to hear your sweet tiny voice. Today, you pointed to my ear and said the word without any prompting. Then we looked at the dog and his ears. You wanted so much to touch them, but you are still a bit timid around him at times. They other night, as we were going to sleep,  you pointed to my eye and said the word. That was your first body part word. I do have to be careful, cause that finger coming at my eye still scares me, after that time you poked me in it and sometimes it still hurts.

We think it is way cute how your n’s come out as m’s. You started saying the word no but it comes out “mo”. At dinner a couple of days ago,  you actually shook your finger back and forth and said, “mo mo mo” at me. We all busted out laughing. That’s ok though. You will figure out that n sound soon enough.

You are a pretty smart cookie, and although you can’t say alot right now, you know exactly what we are saying a good part of the time. All those words will be coming very, very soon.

Now if I could just get you to stop smearing yogurt through your hair…
