2. I learned this month that I'm going to be a stepmother-in-law! Over Christmas, my step-daughter's boyfriend gave her a "promise ring" so we knew it was coming, but they officially got engaged this month. And, since he's in the Marines they could be getting married as early as this summer! Lord help me. A high school graduation, a new born baby, and a wedding all within weeks/months of each other!
Some pics I took of them while he was home for Christmas break: (And sidenote: we really really like him. :)
3. I learned this month that our 20 month old has an extensive vocabulary for her age. I knew she talked a lot but I guess I didn't realize how much until others started making comments about it, and then when I took her this month for her well child check-up, the pediatrician even commented about how much and how well she speaks. So, more for my personal records, I'm going to document here the words that she regularly knows and uses (meaning without being asked to repeat after us)
Mommy, Daddy, Mamaw, Pawpaw, Ugie (Logan), Jacob, Yaya (Levi), Audrey, Buddy, Sissy, Jentry, Baby, Brother, Potty, Poopoo, Peepee, Shooie (when something stinks), Ewwww, Diaper, Cow, Bear, Shoes, Hat, Hungry, Snack, Milk, Water, Tea, Ice, Pizza, Apple, Bar Bar (granola bar), Chip Chip (chocolate chip), Ready, Go, Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Ears, Hair, Belly, Back, Feet, Toes, Hand, Teeth, Lips, Lap, Finger, Up, Down, Drop, Book, Read, Please, Thank You, Sorry, No, Yes, More, Uh-oh, Naughty, Pretty, Ok, Puppy, Cat, Meow, Horsie, Moo, Quack Quack, Monkey, Elmo, Ernie, Abby, Big Bird, Cookie, Oscar, Cookie, Chair, Shower, Door, Help, Hi, Bye, Later, Night Night, Sleep, Nap, Paci, Play, Ball, Tessie (her Aunt), Nana (Her aunt Jana), Pray, God, Amen, Yes Ma'am, Remote, Tractor, Car, Bed, Hurt, Hold, Me, You, Trash, I do (her way of saying I love you), Hot, Good Job, Helper, Dip, Popcorn, More, Socks, House, Room, Bite, Owwwie, Yummy, Oops, Why, Truck, Ball, Hug, Kiss, See Ya, Juice, Fridge, Shirt, Buckle, Banana, Buckle, Boots, Walk, Yogurt, Look, Here, Keys, Window, Backpack, One, Two
