New Words

Sweet Pea is learning new words everyday! Everyone told us her vocabulary would explode soon and it really does seem like thats the best description for her progress. I especially love the way she says, "no" and "yes", she has so much personality with the two simple words. Here's a list of just a few words she currently has in her vocabulary, there are so many more I don't think I'll remember them all for this post:

No = nooooo (with a scrunched face while she shakes her head) OR "no!" (as in: how dare you ask me that?)
Yes = 'yays' (like a little southern girl)
Mama = "MomMom"
Puppy (and "ruff ruff")
Eat Eat
Go Go
Beep beep (to cars and trucks, I think she thinks she's speaking their language ;)
*Clothes (she is MY daughter, after all!)


Also, we try to expose her to other languages as much as possible, we have a children's video that is all in Spanish. I was trying to teach her to say, "Hola", and she said "Hiyaaa". My little girl speaks Spanglish already ;)

That's what she says when she sees a big truck! She points at it and marvels at the size and sound. Then she starts waving and saying, "HhhhIIiiiiiiii, beep beep", and as it drives past she keeps waving and switches to, "Byeeeee, beep beep".

Love it!

What Does Mama Say?

Sweet Pea is at such a fun age right now! Everyday her vocabulary is expanding, and it is so amazing to see her learning and mastering new skills. She is literally learning a new word every day. It is fascinating!!! She's pretty good at all the animal sounds, so the other day her daddy was driving with her in the car and asking her, "What does the puppy say? (RUFF RUFF!) What does the kitty say? (mowwww)" etc. Then he said, "What does mama say?" Her response? "Chris". We laughed at that so hard! She's always impressing us, while making us laugh - parenthood is awesome!

Friend's 1st Birthday

Last weekend Sweet Pea got to attend a 1st birthday party for an adorable little boy. His mommy and I have been friends since childhood.  It's neat to see our kids play together!!! It was soooo much fun, there was a playground nearby, and there were tons of little kids and everyone had a blast!
