She is becoming verbose!

That was the title of the post I wrote when Selena was 16 months old and it is even more true for Allie. She is talking more and more every day.  She points to your eyes and says "eye".  She does the same for nose and ears.  She often will yell at Selena, "Seenuh, go away."  Sadly that is because that is what Selena often yells at her.  She calls all dogs, "Dyna" and loves spotting all the dogs every where we go.  She also likes spotting crows and is always pointing them out.  She calls other 4 legged animals Dyna as well.  Usually goats, cats or bears.  She can specify if she wants cheese, banana, or a sandwich.  Sometimes she'll say, "I want" and point to the thing she wants.  She loves bellies and is always lifting her shirt, and other people's shirts and offering "tickle, tickle's" and zerberts too.  Really her vocabulary is becoming enormous.  

  • She still hits, and pinches and pulls hair.  It still is frustrating.  I really wish she would stop.  
  • When she gets excited she lifts her feet up and down dancing similar to the Happy Feet dance.  
  • She likes helping in the kitchen and is often dragging a chair to climb up on.
  • She likes wearing coats and is often stealing her sisters.
  • She is starting to really like books, especially ones with large single pictures or photographs.  Her favorites are Baby Bear, Baby Bear, and when I checked out Brown Bear, Brown Bear that is a hit too.  She also likes Dog or what she calls the Dyna book.  My First Halloween Board Book has also been a hit.  She likes the crows and witch hats. 
  • She likes planting big kisses on you.  She has also taken to licking me.  Selena taught her that and she thinks its hilarious.  
  • We went to the Evergreen State Fair and the Puyallup Fair.  She was very upset that she wasn't allowed on any rides.  We finally found one that they would let her on, but of course it was the fastest ride in the little kids section.  A bit of confusion happened so she didn't get to go on the same turn that Selena did so she screamed the entire time at the injustice.  Then she finally got her turn, but it was too fast and she got scared and cried.  The operator stopped the ride for her so she could off early.  :(   At the Puyallup Fair she did get to go on the little train and that was perfect.   She loved the animals though and thought the face painting was cool too. 
  • She weaned due to me getting sick and requiring unsafe for breastfeeding medication.  She actually has taken it pretty well, better than I have.  But I want to write a whole post for that.  
  • Her hair is getting a little curly at the ends.  

 I got too involved playing with my new camera, and snap this shot.  Look up and then realize how high Allie had climbed.  Selena told me not to worry because she was supervising. ;)
