Clara is now one and a half years old. It's so nice to be able to say: "One and a half" when asked her age instead of trying to tally up the months. In honor of this new moniker, Clara has decided it's time to really start talking. It's startling every time she blurts out a new word or a tiny sentence. Also, it's amusing that everything she says seems to end with an exclamation point.
Some of her favorites include:
Sock! (while pulling off her sock and handing it to me)
(while pretending whatever she's holding is a phone she's answering - binkie, keys, remote control)
Aaaa-choo! (she pretends to sneeze then laughs)
Soup..yum yum yum!" (while pretending to make soup in her play kitchen)
No..no...no! (while waggling one finger at me like an old granny)
Thank you! (when handing me anything, or I hand her something)
"P.U!" (said cheerily when realizing she has a poopy diaper)
I love you!
I love cheese!
Today, when asked by her dad what she would like to have for dinner she replied: "A kiss!"
Congratulations, Clara. I can't wait to hear what comes out of your mouth next.
