Here's a running list of Abby's growing vocabulary! The words with the stars are ones she uses in conversation. (I love that I can really have a conversation with her now!!) The others are words that she can repeat pretty well, but hasn't started to own yet.
Bubba * (This is what she calls Caleb, for now)
no * (This sometimes comes out as "Nein," which is German for "no." She's bilingual!) :)
flower * (This one surprised me! We were walking up the steps when she stopped and pointed to a flower arrangement on the cabinet below, and said "flower!" I had no idea she knew that word, but now she points to the arrangement and says it every time we walk upstairs!)
Nina * (what my mom goes by)
Paw Paw * (what my dad goes by)
kitty * (as in Hello Kitty!)
pop (I haven't been able to figure out if she owns this or not--she says it when the bubbles are popping, but it's always after I have said it.)
good job* (She cheers for herself when she does something she thinks is good--complete with clapping, squealing, and a hearty "good job!" It doesn't really sound like the real phrase, but it's consistent and I know what she is saying.)
Aren't you proud of her?!?! This girl is amazing. AAAAAAAND, she has been eating consistently around 250 calories a day since I started counting calories!!!
