FireGirl Update

On the carousel at Kings Island.
Aunt Carrie swears she loved it (I'm sure she did), just no smiles in this pic.

She is so cute!

Oh, wait. That hasn't changed, has it? LOL.

She's still not talking very much at all. Oh, she babbles tons, but as far as real words coming out... not so much. I'm a little concerned that if she doesn't have a language explosion here soon, the pediatrician will want to send her to speech therapy or something.

Her understanding is phenomenal though. I swear, she understands everything we say. No kidding. Sometimes I think she's honestly a little genius.

She is trying to communicate more. Lost more hand gestures & such. Pointing at things. Grabbing my hand to show me something. Stuff like that. Just not talking a whole bunch.

She knows all of her colors (red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, white, black, gray., brown, pink... I think that covers it).
She knows all kinds of animals, and not just the regular ones. She also knows zebra, giraffe, manatee, tiger, sloth, etc.
She's working on her alphabet, and knows about half of the letters. In fact, talking on the phone with her is nearly impossible anymore, because she likes to point at the zero and say "Oooooooohhhhhhhhhhh". Over, and over, and over again.
We're working on counting. She knows what one means, and two. Sometimes three. That's as high as we've gotten. But man she loves two for some reason. Probably because it's the only one she can even kinda say. "Twoooooooooooo". Oh, she also knows five. I don't know that she actually knows five, but she knows it's more than one or two. If we tell her she can have one, or two, of something, she'll grin and hold up all five fingers, asking for more. It's so cute.

Her potty training was going really well, she was making real progress, pooped & peed on the potty several times, until... she saw the poop in the potty. That was the last time. FireGirl no like poop. She even cries when I change her poopy diaper now. So we're working on teaching her that everyone poops, poop is good, etc. The funniest is that when she poops, I go thru the list of everyone else who poops: Daddy, Momma, Grandma, Grandpa, etc. So now if you ask her who poops, she smiles and says "Dada". LOL. Cracks. Me. Up. That child is hilarious. Anywho, I'm also gonna make a poster for her so she can get a sticker every time she goes on the potty. I think she'll like that.

So, that's a brief rundown of what's going on in FireGirl land.

Thanks for checking in!
