My sweet baby Charlee Kai said her 10th word today! I'm not even sure that is developmentally "on track" for her 385 days of life, but I am so proud. She actually knows what the words she says means!!
Like today, for example... word #10:
She said this as she was pulling the remote control out of my hand. The actual, direct quote was, "NO!! MINE!!!"
Who taught my kid to act like this? (maybe it was her dad pulling it away from her and saying mine, then laughing when she made this face-
sorry for the picture quality
and pulled it back from him.)
It's honestly kind of funny, when you are home alone. Not so funny when she stands up at her birthday party and yells at the baby friend helping her open presents, "NO!! DON'T! DON'T!"
How the heck do you stop this? How can you teach a one year old manners? Tell them "don't?" Or "no?"
Yeah, I have no ideas...
In case you were dying to know, her other words are hi, bye, dada, mama, wow, dog (she hates dogs and is so scared of them, don't ask me why she like to talk about them), and ball. She said "HO HO" at Christmastime, but I can't get her to do it anymore so I don't think it counts. Some people (my mom) like to think she says "baby," but I haven't heard it yet.
In case you forgot the cute baby after seeing the monster in the tub here are a few refresher pictures.
