Chatterbox #2

Emily is a chatty kid, just like her big brother. I love to hear her little voice and get an idea of what she's thinking... though it can be hard to get a word in edge-wise around here. Sometimes I have NO idea what she's trying to say, but it's fun trying to figure it out.

Here is a list of all the words she can say!
- Mama, Dada, Daddy
- Batty (her name for Matthew)
- hi, bye-bye
- this, dat, wa dat (what's that)
- cheese! (when she sees the camera)
- pretty -- her current favourite. Everything is "pih-teeeee!" hehehe.
- dirty (sounds like "ditty")
- moo, baa
- ah-ehh (ie, "uh-oh")
- na-na-na (when singing), na-na (when she sees Nonna's picture)
- rum-rum or brrrr (when driving a car)
- tee-tee (birdy sounds)
- tees (trees)
- ah-ah! (mimicking the sound mommy makes when she's doing something she shouldn't!)
- ba-ba (referring to her bunny, BunBun)
- Jack (sounds like "jat") - her little friend at daycare
- Mimi

I think that's it? It's hard to keep up!

She also doing the stairs and climbing things... she's like a little ninja, I can't turn my back for a second or she'll be on top of something. Just trying to keep me on my toes.

Ooh! New plaything!

Really, child?

My dear, sweet girl child. There are 5,000 toys in this house. At least another 5,000 things you could play with that aren't toys. There's your brother, the cat, your Mom and Dad.

But nooooooo. You have to play in the toilet.

The TOILET. Really? Really. Splish splash!

Oh and, you waited til your brother had JUST peed in it to go splashing around. Well done my love. Well done.

She's a handful, this one. A hand full of pee.

I think we can officially say Emily is CRUISING!

She started pulling up on furniture to stand last week... about a week before that she started pulling up on the stairs and half-standing / half-leaning. But now she can pull up and stand in front of the couch, chairs, footstool, her crib (even in a sleep sack!).

Yesterday though, she was motivated by an iPod Touch, and took a few steps along the couch to get to it. She also loves to 'walk' holding onto our hands... except that it's really running, she goes so fast. I think we are slowing her down! haha.
