Talk Talk

Everyday it's something new. Here are some of the things that C is saying these days... some in Spanish some in English.

"etantes" = elefante (elephant)

"ipipamo"= hipopotamo (hippopotamus)

"punkin"= pumpkin

"Go Gators"

Then there are the funny ones... she calls our "Obama/ Biden" lawn sign, "Obama" ... (yes Republicans in our lives, we have an Obama sign in our front lawn. We are 1 of 7 on our street...3 Romneys)

She also acknowledges when she has two of something... "Dos kitties!" ..."Dos etantes"... "Dos agua"

Tonight was another surprise. C has been running a fever of 101-103 for 24+ hours (we're off to see Dr. Ernie tomorrow at 8:30am), so Papi went to pick up dinner. While he was gone she was walking around the house with her Rapunzel doll and Scooby Doo bucket saying "Papi, where are you?" clear as day!

She's also started singing the "Guess How Much I Love You" theme song.

I can't believe in 18 days our sweet girl is going to be 2!

September in the Florida Room: C is 22 months old!

September came and went! I kept thinking about where we were last year. How C was nearly 1 year old, and how the year before that we were still settling into the house and waiting for the arrival of our sweet girl. Today she is boisterous, adventurous, friendly, lovable and sharp as a tack! Her song repertoire continues to grow, now including tunes like Frere Jacques, L-O-V-E and the theme song to Doc McStuffins. She remembers who everyone is, and will tell you who gave her what. She constantly asks to go see her "primas" and won't stop talking about school. This month she also mastered climbing in and out of her high chair, putting her shoes on, and at school she creates masterpieces on a daily basis. She's amazing, and we are blessed to call her ours. Here are a few shots from this month. Hope you enjoy them! C is sitting on the couch next to me and she approves!
