The things my daughter says

I love listening to Kairi talk. She astounds me every day. It's hard to believe that a year ago today I could barely understand her. She had maybe 20 words in her vocabulary.

Moments ago she ran up to me holding a turtle we bought for her at the Dallas Aquarium.
"Look Mommy! It's a turtle!"
Now, turtle doesn't exactly sound right, but such a good try!

My favorite, though, was last night when she announced:
Mommy! I a pincess!
You're a princess?
Yes, Mommy, I a pincess.
Are you Mommy's princess?
Yes! And Mommy pincess. Kairi and Mommy pincess!
I'm a princess too?!?
Yes Mommy! You pincess. Kairi pincess! Like spider pincess. (Miss Spider's Sunny Patch -- watch the princess episode and you'll understand)
And then we talked about how princesses are nice and loving and take care of other people. Princesses share and help everyone they know.

She talks constantly. And I love to listen to it. *sigh* :) What a wonderful way to spend my day.

Awww... So sweet!

Kalila's got about 17 or 18 words right now and in the mostly un-understandable stage (other than said words lol) so I'm guessing if she follows suit that's what I have to look forward to in a year lol.

She will! Most definitely! By the time she's two she'll have such a large vocabulary that you'll be amazed! :D

Mama Kalila said...

I'm sure... We're laughing right now cuase I got one of those toddler updates that says at her age she should have 3 words and maybe babbles for phrases like tata for thankyou... she says thankyou for thankyou lol. and 'who's the baby' and a couple other phrases...

Steph said...

That was totally Kairi!!! She said soooo much at that age!

Alex says Mama, Dada, vrrooom. He's popped out a few other words, but since they've not been repeated I'm not counting them as words he says.
