It appears that my elder daughter (it’s funny to say that about a 21-month-old baby) has had a vocabulary EXPLOSION the past couple of weeks.
We’re hearing, “PEASE!” (Please) all the time.
We’re working on, “Help please.” For all of you with toddlers out there, I’d definitely teach ’em the sign for “help.” I wish we would have started that one sooner…
Lila can’t leave the room without saying, “Byeeeee.”
Nor can she enter a room without greeting us with, “Hiiiii!”
She’s also speaking more Spanish – “Aqui, Mommy!” (“Here, Mommy” [patting the ground where she wants me to sit].)
“Alli, Mommy!” (“There, Mommy.”)
She also only drinks aqua. Not water. Please don’t offer her water because SHE ONLY DRINKS AGUA.
“Lila do you want some water?”
It’s pretty great.
Lila’s also climbing ALL over the place. I”ll walk into a room and she’ll be sitting in a chair that I’ve never seen her sit in.
(I don’t know where she comes from, this little alien.)
All in all – Lila is far too much fun. She’s go, go, GO! and I love that about her.
Ok, on to the pictures…
Hanging out in her boppy, the handiest pillow ever.
And sitting in one of her old carseats. Look at those legs!
Love that grin.
“I refuse to smile, Mommy. So don’t even try.”
“Ok, well I might smile. But I won’t look at you.”
“Ohmygoodness, I couldn’t take it anymore. I HAD TO SMILE.”
“…and I love my bunny.”
(I love this one.)
How great are these shoes? AH. I love them.
Pigtails. She’s growing up.
Somebody loves her sister!
Oh, be still my heart.
This makes me smile because Lila is a very forceful kisser. 🙂
This is Lila acting like a squirrel. (That’s totally my kid.)
“Hang on, I forgot something.”
“Let’s read this book, instead.”
Love this kid.
Lila got her second-ever fat lip this past weekend. However, this one bled. A lot. Boo. I hate blood. She was totally awesome about it, though. (Thank God Aunt T. had a birthday and Aunt B. had cake – Lila was quelled with cake.)
…and now my favorite pics of the week:
Lila, minutes after waking up.
She pats her bed and says, “Aqui!” In other words, “Please put Vivi here.”
Here she is tickling her.
Love that look.
So happy to have her sister in there. (Vivi’s smiling, too.)
STOP it already.
Ugh. I love being her mom.
