Livy is 19 months and so much fun. I LOVE the newborn and baby stage but I am pleasantly surprised how hilarious and fun toddlers can be.
I'm getting The feeling that Livy is very vocal and I want to remember the funny things she's been saying.
The calls almost all animals by their sound (unless they don't have one) or her favorite: PUPPIES! Example: moo=cow and teet teet=bird. She can name an astounding number of animals (it's her current obsession). She can also name almost all her body parts (even elbows, knees, and chin). She loves to sing "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" except it goes "head, toes, head, toes!" She also loves transportation vehicles (wucks/trucks and aapanes/airplanes).
She's got all the normal first words down pat and some of her funnier ones are:
And my favorite: bawlf for golf ball (all other balls are bawls).
She amazing me every day with new ones... And not just parroting me but actually point out things. We walked by the elevator in target and she said "evator" out of the blue! We were also counting and I got to five and then she said "six!" That one shocked me bc we've been focusing on smaller increments.
She's started saying little phrases:
"I get it"
"There he is" (der ee is)
"What's this?" (Is is?)
Oh shoot! (Used in context...oops!)
Clean up! (Neen up!)
I see it?
I see you!
I love you (I yov you)
Rain rain[go away] (wain wain)
Dance, dance! (Usually dans, dans, baby! Telling her baby to dance).
She's also been using possessive nouns "Daddy's food", "Daddy's shirt", "Lizzie's house" and so on.
She said her first sentence this week: "Mimer wats bawl" = watch Miller play ball... Our neighbor was outside playing and she wanted to watch.
She's still pretty shy and cautious and a stage 5 clinger if she thinks I'm leaving but if she's comfortable she's quite social. She says hey to every person we pass in the store. But if you approach her and try to talk? Forget about it. Walking with us through a resteraunt? She'll greet every single person.
We're working on dropping her morning nap, but she and I feel the same way about it.
