Finding her Voice

Brooklynn has been developing quite the vocabulary the last few weeks. Truth be told most of her words still aren't full words, but they are close enough to the real thing that we know what she is talking about.
Her words include:
~Dada (occasionally Daddy)
~Cookie (sometimes)
~Cracker (also only sometimes)
~Mama (usually only when she is upset/mad/wants something)
~Yogurt (she says yoyo)

We haven't worked too much on Sign Language, but she has picked up a few signs. she knows "milk", "more", "please", "thank you", and she is just starting to grasp "all done". She was most impressive with Thank You as she picked it up after seeing just a few times. I was actually surprised when she said Thank You for the first time.

Some pictures of the last few weeks:

Brooklynn is lightning fast when it comes to climbing on/in things these days.
Turn your back for 2 seconds and you might find this:

or this (my personal favorite):
she really, really loves wipes and found where we store them!
Brooklynn loves this wagon she got for her birthday. It's not really made to be
ridden in, but she's small and they have tons of fun playing with it.
She went down for her nap with her pants on...
Somehow they ended up next to her head!

Going in the hard way!
Helping Daddy rake the lawn.
Checking out her hair.
Getting comfortable with her new potty chair.
Master of destruction!
Trying to figure out how she can get in the car while holding her ball.
This is how I have been finding her lately when she wakes up. She puts her arm up
through the bottom of her shirt and then out the neck. Silly girl!!
Eating dirt because Mommy doesn't feed her enough!


  1. I can't wait to see you guys next month. I was just catching up on your blog :) And I'm sure that you know this but even if she isn't say the exact word (or even close to the right word) if she uses it consistently to refer to the same thing than its a word!
