Baby girl is officially 15 months.
Eli likes to call her a “kid-baby.”
“She’s not a baby, she’s not a kid. She’s a kid-baby.”
Last week, Emaline started showing just how much of a kid-baby she really is by saying a dozen or so new words.
Flower. We were at the greenhouse with my mom and she repeated it. Now she says it all the time when she sees flowers. And it is always accompanied by a giant grin.
Wash. Emmy loves washing her hands at the sink. She even pretends to wash her hands in her play kitchen. Whenever she is done eating she will hold her hands out and say “wash” until we bring her a washcloth.
Jonah. I knew she loved Jonah, but I was so surprised when she said “Jonah” at his birthday party on Saturday. Eli talks about Jonah a lot so it makes sense that she picked up on it.
Help. Emaline reaches her hands up when she says this. I love it.
Coco. Other than Elijah, mama, daddy, (and now Jonah), Coco is the only other name that she says. I guess she really loves her uncle.
There. Emmy points and says “there.” Mostly when she is being held and wants to go somewhere in particular.
More. This was one of the first signs she learned, and it usually pertains to food. But now she signs it and says it. Usually when she wants more food.
Bubble. Which sounds a whole lot like “bible,” another word that she says (or more like sings.)
Cheese. No surprise that she is a pro at posing for pictures.
I am a fan of her expanding vocabulary because her preferred method of communication lately is yelling. Standing at the fridge yelling. Yelling when Elijah steals a toy. Yelling at the door wall when she wants to go outside. Standing behind my mom with her arms up in the air yelling until she turns around.
And I’m pretty sure her next word is going to be “stop.” Because she needs to learn how to tell her big brother that one.
