|Struttin' her stuff on the way to the park|
|The past few times to the playground she has been super cautious, which is not her normal behavior!|
|Such a big girl!|
I've decided I'm going to be better about keeping track of all these things, because at the last pediatrician visit, he thought she was a bit behind. I think he was full of it...if anything, it was just me forgetting all she knows.
So, for her 18 mo tally....
--She knows her head, eyes, nose, ears, mouth, teeth, hands, tummy, toes, feet
--Animal sounds she knows: cat, dog, snake, cow, horse, sheep
--She probably has nearly 50 words--it seems each day she says something new. A few days ago, she pointed at the drawer and said "fork." Sure enough, I had forgotten to give her a fork for her dinner!
--Words: car, hat, boots, shoes, bath, elf, eat, ball, hello, bye-bye, eyes, nose, milk, water, cracker, up, down, no, sit, mommy, daddy, mad-lin, sissy, socks, poo-poo, bubble, stinky (all of those last three are interchangeable!), dog, fork, toes, binky, outside, chair, diaper, cry, hot, bug, baby, teeth, mouth, more, please, e-f-g (as she tries to sing the alphabet), twinkle, star, banana, airplane, elmo, book
Take that pediatrician!!
She really got into the Elf on a Shelf with Madeline. Each morning she ran down and searched for the elf. There were a few days she found it before Madeline. There have been a few days after Christmas when she has come downstairs and said elf while pointing to some of his previous hiding spots.
When you ask her a question she now sometimes will nod yes, instead of always "No"
She's gotten very good at following multiple commands.
She loves to jump up on the outside tree planter wall and run around while laughing....she is not supposed to do this and she know it!
She navigates the stairs like a pro and is even walking up and down, as opposed to crawling them.
She entertains herself very well and can play at great lengths by herself or with Madeline.
