Food. Family. Fun.

Vocabulary Lessons

Baguette is 10 days shy of 18 months, and is more expressive every day. This is particularly nice for a little girl who once used the sign for “more” only for food, but now uses it for EVERYTHING. (Except lotion. She invented her own sign for when she wants lotion.)

Her speech keeps getting more clear, and she knows more and more words. Here’s what she likes to say right now:

Mama
Daddy
Grandpa
Oma
Opa
Papa
Outside
Elmo
Up
Owl
Quack
Baby
Knee
Eyebrow
More
Neck
Ear
Mine
Uh-oh

She’s even got a phrase or two–her first sentence, spoken a couple of weeks ago, was “I did it!” And when she wants to hand something off, she’ll say, “Take it.”

I am so looking forward to conversations with her. But for now, I just love her enthusiastic, affirmative, “Yeah.”

  1. Saw your comment on Dooce about not knowing how to teach your child how to use a straw? Get a juice box (either a toddler, watered down one or go through the tedious task of filling an empty one with water), and squeeze it while the straw is in her mouth so she gets the idea the liquid comes from the straw. Took me 3 -4 goes of this before my daughter worked it out.

  2. Great post. come and check out mine.
