Speaking of my little girl, Kayla does talk a little now- she did not qualify for early intervention speech therapy. I am glad, but also a little disappointed.. bc if she was going to get help, that would have been awesome. However, they said she was too "bright". She does the intonation of everything we say- but doesn't have the right sounds yet. Just a bit ago I was telling her to yell "come out lily" and she was, but only I would know that! haha She does say "mama", "dada", and "nana"- which is "nina"... and "baba" HOWEVER she will only use "Dada" correctly and incorrectly. She can say "mama" but won't call me mama. Jer's new trick is to ask Kayla who she loves more- Mama or Dada- and of course since she'll only say Dada she says DADA! what a dork! :) (jer that is) :) So another example would be her golf clubs- she LOVES her stinkin golf clubs- but she calls them da....da. So I know the different btwn her da da's... but some ppl wouldn't. It's hard, but she's getting there. :) She talks all the time- especially when she is in her crib supposedly sleeping! :)
Summer has been great- again, not a fan of being big fat pregger lady during this hot summer, but other than that Kayla and I have had a great time. Swimming, swinging, and playing w/ cousins. She has been able to see all of her cousins this summer, the last set to come next week... which is fantastic seeing how last summer I wouldn't let her near anyone. So this has been a blast for her. She loves to play w/ kids... we went to the beach the other day, and a mother came over w/ her 3 older kids, 5 and older, and Kayla would not stop running over to them... Jer I think was getting a little embarrassed of having to run over and keep grabbing her, but she had a good time. :) Of course I didn't have my camera either.. :(
As I sit here and type, Kayla is supposed to be sleeping, nap time... no- she is sitting up and saying "mama", "baba", "lala"... ! Goof ball!
Kayla and her cousins.. :) Next week she'll be able to play w/ Julian and Jack..can't wait! :)
