sparrow's new words

i have to keep a list of the new ones she acquires, at least for awhile, because it is fascinating to me.

july 9th--

rock (she said it walking all the way back home from brandon school, and insisted on touching every rock in a little stone wall and saying "ock" as she pointed to each one.)

july 10--

hug (she started saying this awhile ago, actually, don't remember exactly)
bath
bowl
cracker
dog (for real--not just panting or barking or "du". she says "dogk"
chair
glasses (started awhile ago too.)

aug 5th--

wind
(this was completely amazing because she was just sitting eating lunch and she kept staring out the window at the tree waving vigorously outside. suddenly she pointed out and looked at me and said, "wind!" her dad teaches her well.)

she also now walks backwards in tiny little steps with this pleased, excited, mischevious look on her face, saying "back back back back" as she does so. haha!

it seems like she ditches the signs for things as soon as she has the word down. kind of a sad loss, but her talking is so cute that it's worth it!

aug. 6th thru 19th--

pen

swing
slide
skunk

airplane (using 2 syllables now and is understandable as such)
train (she hears a train hooting in the distance and perks up and says "wain!")
spanking (beng-keng)
hole
muffin
butterfly (she has this elaborate sign for it and says "vwy!")
three

aug. 20th--

bread
toast
car
bottom
outside

she also said "rice" and "bus" today, but i don't know if i should officially include them, because she was copying us, and i don't know if she really knows what these words mean by themselves. all the other words i have up, she could say without prompting when she saw the object or action in question.
