Lilly is growing so fast I can hardly keep up. She doesn't look like a little baby anymore, she's a toddler! She learned how to open the pantry this week and I keep finding canned food all over the house. It feels like we just went through this with Eli, I guess we're starting it all over again with Lilly!
She babbles to herself all day, no one has any idea what she's talking about, but she's very expressive. She's saying quite a few words now like:
DaDa (doll or baby)
Bock Bock (Chickens)
GoGo (she wants to go somewhere)
She has a few animal sounds down like:
She also puts her finger up to her lips and Shushes people when her baby is going to sleep!
She's a lot like Eli about performing for anyone. If I try to get her to say anything she won't make a sound, but she'll spontaneously say/do things on her own. We've been practicing body parts, like "Where's your nose", and she always points to the wrong thing. I saw her in the corner once, and she was not only pointing to the right parts, but naming all of them. I think she knows a lot more than she's letting on!
Eli was the same way, we tried to teach him sign language but he'd never do it in front of us. We'd say "do you want more?" and you'd see his hands start to do the sign and then he'd quickly put them flat down on his tray and stare at you blankly. Later we'd see him practicing all the signs when he thought no one was looking.
I was hoping Lilly was going to be a cooperative child, but the signs aren't looking good!
