Every day, E continues to amaze us. I never thought I would get so much joy from watching her little gears moving...she picks up information and holds it until she needs it, then surprises us by using it at the appropriate time. Today using her Magnadoodle, she picked up one of the magnets and said "Tri-agle." Shapes? Really? Could she possible know shapes? So I picked up the square and said, "What's this, E?" She looked at it thoughtfully, and slowly sounded out "Ska-wayer." In all fairness, she didn't know what the circle was, but she did repeat the word and I'm betting she'll know it tomorrow. Two out of three is good enough for a proud Mommy and Daddy.

Uh, who are we kidding? We gush over just about everything.

She is putting together lots of words, and using them in context. Here are some of her most wonderful sentences and songs, overheard in the last few days...

  • Stop, Mommy, stop.
  • Twinkle, twinkle star...howonder you are.
  • Daddy cold outside.
  • Stop, Larry, stop.
  • Granpa do dat.
  • Opit. (Open it)
  • Baby cryin.
  • Stop, Bean, stop. No do dat.
  • Mommy read it.
  • Where Dora book?
  • Pa-cake pa-cake, roll it.
  • Stop, Gramma, stop.
  • Bear seepin.
  • Thanks, Mommy. Welcome.
  • Come on, Daddy.
  • Spider, spout. Rain, wash...again.
  • Teletubbies!

Okay, that last one is techinically not a sentence, but she says it with a tone that means oh so much more. I can't wait to see what she says to her new baby brother or sister...Christmas should be, well, interesting.

As I watch E at the door wall dancing to a song from the Backyardigans, I still marvel at what this kid has absorbed in her almost 21 months. Her vocabulary is still far more reaching than reported here (not enough room). What fun and joy to watch this little thing!
