Reesey Talks!

Well, kind of. Just a little.

Many of you know that Reesey struggles with her speech. She really does try to say words, but they just won't come out. Going to the Word Learning study at the University really helped, but we finished that in July. I am taking her to a speech eval next month and I'm really excited. If she qualifies I know she's going to take off! If she doesn't then maybe I'll feel better about it (probably not, though).

Anyway, Lately she seems to be picking up a few words here and there. So I thought I'd make a little list of words she knows at 21 months.

baba (pacifier. In Spanish we call it bobo so maybe that's where this comes from)
caca (poop) - Speaking of poop... She has pooped in the potty TWO TIMES!! She already knows when she has gone poop and will point to her diaper and say caca. She sometimes gets mixed up when she is tooting and will say caca so I've taken these moments and put her on the toilet and twice now she has actually gone!

Nunu (her pink bunny lovie)
dowm (down. This is a new word as of this weekend!)
wawa (water, but only sometimes)
Lala (Lola)
Babu (Abu)

Ten words. That's what she knows. It's not much, but I'm excited. She understands absolutely everything though. 

Yesterday she was standing on the dining room table and she says, "Mama? Dawm. Mama. Dowm" Yay! That's a sentence!!

Photo Dump!

So I've been too busy lazy, to do a real post, but I feel bad, so here's a photo dump. Frankly, my favorite type of post!

Waiting for Daddy to answer FaceTime

She already loves Coach purses

just another Saturday morning with a duck & Iron Man!

Oh, and wearing Jaxon's pjs!

Little diva reading a chapter book

This is how she rolls most days. Shirtless, but fully accessorized!

Tip toes!

Brian & I escaped to a concert a few weeks ago :)

First day of homework

Peese got in on the homework action too!

She behaved much better the second day


Jaxon caught a caterpillar at school

His caterpillar turned into a butterfly...
not really, but we found one

She found my eyeliner

Eating salsa with the back of a fork.
Why not?

Enjoying some ice cream

Our school had their 1st annual Sock Hop
Super fun times!

Reesey danced and danced!

Jaxon danced and danced!

I had a Target date with my girl :)
Three of my favorite things... Starbucks, Target & Reese


Our neighbor gave us a swing set.
The kids are LOVING IT! 

And today we had the fit to end all fits

It lasted 40 minutes. No joke.
It started outside and ended in my bedroom.
As quickly as it began.

Today we did Back to School pics with our fave photographer,
Meridy at Simply Snapshots!
There you have it. The last month in pictures.
