Fun Game With Mommy & Daddy
The past two evenings, Mommy and I have been playing a fun game with you. I started by holding my arms out for you and saying "come here Emma". You than ran to me smiling. While you were running, Mommy was behind you saying "no no no... don't run to Daddy". I picked you up and gave you a big squeezy hug and said "my Emma". I'd then let you down, and Mommy would put her arms out for you. You ran to her, and I said "noooooo". You ran smiling and laughing. You'd say up long enough to get a hug, then you'd struggle to get down so you could run back to me. You kept doing it over and over. Smiling and laughing each time you ran. It's pretty cute.
You sure do love your Dora couch. You like to sit down on it and pull your music table over so you can play on it. If you see the cat on your couch, you get mad. You scare her away, and then lay down on it. The other day, the cat jumped in your crib. You got really mad. After we moved the cat out, you wanted to get in your crib right away.
Recently, you are saying lots of things lately. Even at your appointment to get your needles last week, the nurse was asking about how much you are talking. We told her about some of the things you were saying, but at that time, you weren't saying nearly as much as you are now.
You love going outside. Sometimes when I'm carrying you by the patio doors, you point outside and say "iiide".
You call shoes "duuu duuus". You say that lots.
Tonight, we were teaching you to count. Mommy was counting things a the supper table... she'd count to 4 or 5, and you'd repeat saying "ooo ooo eee eee"
You say "eee iii eee iii ooo" a lot. When we sing "old MacDonald had a farm" ... you follow by saying "eee iii eee iii oooo". You sometimes just go around saying it even if we aren't singing.
You say so many other things. We'll tell you more about it another post.
We took some videos of you talking.
Feet On The Table
We pulled your high chair up to the table for the first time tonight... we usually leave your high chair tray on. You kept putting your foot up on the table... silly girl.
Its funny to watch you eat. When we have sauce like donair sauce, ketchup or salad dressing, you like to dip. You pick up your food and dip it 3 or 4 times. I was saying "dip dip dip". You repeated by trying to say "dip dip dip". Tonight, you dipping pieces of hamburger in salad dressing.
Still Don't Like Going To Bed
I took you into your room tonight because you seemed tired. You started saying "noo" in a sad decisive voice while shaking your head. You've been saying that for quite a while when we try to put you to bed. I took you in to our bed and you layed down and relaxed... and fell asleep within a few minutes.
Fun In The Bath Again
You had fun in the bath last night. You seem to be starting to like the bath again. For the longest while, you didn't like the bath. You used to stand up... and wouldn't sit down for anything. You sit down again and play with your toys and splash like crazy.
Hair is Getting Long
Your hair is getting so long. We have to tie your hair back with pony and pig tails and keep moving it out of your eyes. When we were giving you a bath last night, we really noticed how long your hair is on the back when we were washing it.
I love you cute baby!
