Caroline has finally decided that she wants to talk. For quite a while now you can tell her something and she will do it, she understands everything you say perfectly. She just didn't want to talk. In the last week she has really started talking a lot. Granted sometimes what she is trying to say sounds nothing like what she is really saying. But after she says it a couple times I get it. Here is what she has started saying in the last week or two.
ank yoo (thank you, while nodding her head)
down (she puts her hands in the air and yells "down". She is trying to say touchdown. Guess that's from all the football that Chad, Anthony, & Caroline play in the evenings before bed)
sit down (she started saying this after spending the weekend with Nanny and her having to tell Caroline to sit down while on the couch. She now says it all the time while pointing her finger)
dog (she has a stuffed dog that she carries around the house petting and kissing all the time)
bi bi (bite bite because that child loves to eat. She had 3 bowls of spaghetti tonight plus dessert)
She also has learned where her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, & belly are.
She will also repeat anything you say now. I have a feeling once she starts talking a lot she won't stop. I don't know what we will do when she starts talking a lot because we already have one child that never hushes. Anthony talks and talks and talks. He is in the question stage. Everything he sees he has to ask you a question about it and "I don't know" is not a good enough answer for him. You have to have detailed answers for everything. We went to dinner in Hendersonville on Sunday and he never even caught his breath the whole way there and the whole way home and Caroline just repeated Mama and Daddy the whole way there and the whole way home. I don't know why but everytime we get in the car she just says Mama over and over and over. Car rides are not quite as peaceful as they used to be but its a lot of fun!
The weather has finally been nice the last several days and we are spending a lot of time outside now. The kids love it and Caroline now cries to go outside everyday. It makes the days so much easier when we can get outside because they get so bored being in the house all day. Spring can't come soon enough for me!
