She isn’t all smiles and hugs, I’ll tell you that for free. This is hilarious, I feel NOOOOO GUILT about laughing at her during her tantrums. She’s so fucking ridiculous. And no, I don’t know why she gets so riled up over the damn pencils and markers and paper. She’s just going to have to learn that she can only have a few colours at a time.
Hey we went to her vaccination appt on Wednesday. She was so great, really brave, but sad when she knew what was coming. She let the nruse weigh and measure her which was great – she was too scared to sit on the scale and lie down to be measured last time, and we didn’t force it. She is 26.5 lbs – with her clothes and diapers on, which is less than I thought she weighed – and 33 and 3/4 inches long! She’s almost 3 feet, and she is HALF MY HEIGHT. She’s not even 2 yet. 70th percentile for weight and 90th for height which means that she is lengething and leaning out.
We got some pamphlets from the nurse, one was about language – and since it said that by 18 months kids SHOULD know about 18 words, we figured we’d write down all the ones that Éowyn uses regularily. They are not all completely intelligble, but her enunciation is getting much better and WE know what she is saying.
Here’s the list –
Shoes (she will say shoeses, too!)
Thirsty (very little enunciation, but she uses it to ask for water)
Thanks (mostly sounds like TSS! but the last few days it’s been TAYS!)
Please (sounds like PWEESE – love love love it)
Tickle (we think this was her first word)
Kitty (mostly sounds like KEEEEE! or KEEYEE!)
Mama or Mum (very rare to hear her say this)
Nez/Nose (she can point to knee, nose, head, hair, teeth, eyes, ears, cheek, toes/feet, tattoo which is also right on board for her age)
What’s That? (Wassa?)
Hair/Head?hat (not sure which one, or if she can truly tell the difference between hat and head/hair)
Night Night (NyeNye)
Allright (Aw why!)
Very cool to hear your kid talk. Very very cool.
Have a nice day, everyone!
