SO MUCH TALKING.
You are blowing my mind, kiddo. With the
talking, the constant chattering and commentary on what you want ("Avery
want mama take to park") or what you don't want ("no want THAT!")
usually with an imperiously pointed finger. You are boisterously
alternating from disdainful to delighted to ornery and obnoxious and
then quickly back to happy squealing.
Things you like:
going to the park
going down the little slide
your little friend, baby Connor, and hugging him TIGHT while he gazes
out piteous and hapless from your enthusiastic embrace.
Things you love:
going to the park with mama and dada
down the big slide that always freaks other moms out--they think I'm
being irresponsible and have Child Protective Services on hold
getting hugged by moma or dada and then pushing us and running away while we're not quite done showering with kisses.
was listing your words up til about 16 months. Nowadays, it just is an
exercise in futility. It would be like trying to follow a very active
dog around for a week and counting how many bushes he sniffed and how
many times he panted happily in between. Um, a thousand? Ten thousand?
Why does it matter anymore except to show that you are normal and happy
and healthy and maybe even a little obnoxious.
however, treasure your words. I love that you say,"Mama, come play
puzzles, pwease." Usually the pwease has to be wheedled out, but it does
appear more and more frequently. My favorite words lately are the ones
charmingly mispronounced. Like "bwbwbwbwimp" (blimp) and "pwwumb"
(plumb). I ask you to say them over and over, while holding a very
straight face and a slightly shaky flip video camera. I know you will
hate it when they show up in your future wedding video montage. Oh well.
Well WELL worth it.
It's my birthday this month. I get a 15% discount at Anthro---I'm probably going to pounce on ALL the curtains that we should have bought 2 years ago and prevented our house from looking like a forlorn 70's garage sale.
