The strangest thing happened when M came home from Grandma and Grandpa’s house this past Monday.

She came home with this huge leap in vocabulary and sentence structure development.

So strange.  Her pronunciations of certain words she was struggling with suddenly became so clear.  She was able to make more full sentences!

One sentence that I remember was during bedtime.  She was sleepy and could barely keep her eyes open. 

She told me, “Close my eyes, turn the lights back on, and sleep.”

“Turn the lights back on” is her way of saying “turn the lights off.”  We are still working on that one..

It was the first time she had said anything so complex like that!

She really is growing up.  There is no holding her back, she can’t be my baby forever…

It’s amazing how much M’s communication skills have just blown up.  I know, I say it all the time, but I mean it every time.

“I found m&ms on the floor!”
“Get d’milk, in d’fridgerator”
“Marshall eats m&ms, it’s dee-licious!”

It’s also funny listening to her try to put together sentences.  Her sentence structure isn’t 100% complete, but she is trying.

“Cape, take it off, Elsa.”
“Snow monster, Rubble scare, him”

An article in told me not to stop and correct her.  Instead, I repeat the sentence she said, but in the correct order.  Sometimes, she’ll repeat it correctly, other times, she says it the same way she said it the first time.  I know she’ll learn it correctly eventually.  I know I’ll miss her sentence structure when she outgrows it.

Hubby and I are just so amused.  Sometimes, we don’t even realize how well she can communicate with us.  We would ask her a question and we’d be surprised that she would answer us.  It makes us laugh so many times. 

Our little girl is really growing up.  I love watching her bloom.

At dinner..

M:  Mimi!
Me:  Yes, baby?
M:  Up?
Me:  Not yet, you have to finish your food.


M:  Mimi!
Me:  Yes, baby?
M:  Up?
Me:  Not yet, you still have to finish your food..

Finished food, but I’m busy eating mine while she’s still in her highchair.

M: Mimi?  Mimi?
Me:  ….
M:  Mimi!
Me:  …
M:  MOMMY!!!!
Me:  Yes, sweetie?
M:  UP, UP!!

So I guess she can say “mommy.”  But I totally prefer the Mimi… hee hee..

Little M has finally learned who we are.. she knows Mommy, Daddy, and her grandparents..

Every once in a while, she does a roll call.. especially when we are video chatting with my parents on the iPad..

M:  Mimi!
Me:  I’m here, baby!
M: Dah-day!
Hubby:  Hi, M!
M: Ama!
My mom:  Hi, sweetie!
M:  Apa!
My dad:  Hi, baby!

Sometimes she does it in the middle of playing..

M: Mimi!
Me:  Yes, baby, I’m here!
M: Dah-day!
Hubby:  Hi, M!
M:  Ama!
Me:  Ama is at her house..
M: Apa!
Me:  Apa is at his house..

It’s so cute.. she’s always checking up on us!

The evolution of the word “mommy.”

1.  “ma-ma”

2. “ah-mee”

3. “mi-mi-mi-mi”

And all those words are meant for me!  I love it every time I hear her say it!
