i have to keep a list of the new ones she acquires, at least for awhile, because it is fascinating to me.
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.)
weekend of july 13-16
amen (she interrupted our prayer by saying "amen!")
bite! (every time she sees us eating something she wants)
book (not just the sign but the real word now!)
hug (she started saying this awhile ago, actually, don't remember exactly)
dog (for real--not just panting or barking or "du". she says "dogk"
glasses (started awhile ago too.)
(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--
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!")
butterfly (she has this elaborate sign for it and says "vwy!")
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.
aug. 20th to sept. 19th--
hungry (she refers to the fridge as "ungy!")
bear (real word)
necklace (real word)
cow (real word)
piggy (real word)
fishy (real word)
bunny (real word)
vegetable (sounds like "butterball!")
