I'm pretty sure that this will be my last "Charlotte says," type of blog, because Charlotte says everything! She talks all the time, about everything and can say pretty much all the words....or at least a very close interpretation with certain words. I can't believe how fast this happened. I still feel like she is my baby, she still looks like my baby, but everyday she is growing up and I can actually see the changes. I feel a little bit sad about her growing up so fast, but it makes her happy to be able to communicate which in turn makes me happy. And besides, she won't be my last baby, so maybe I can keep the next one from growing up at all! (just in case it sounds like I'm going to be having a baby anytime in the near future, let me clear it up for you.....I'm NOT) Below are just a few things that come out of my daughters mouth on a daily basis:
where are you
On top of the huge vocabulary Charlotte is amassing, she is also leaning other things way fast! She can count to three and ten. It goes something like 1-2-3....TEN. (yelled really loud!) She can point out and name most common animals in books and in movies. She can make animal sounds for cat, dog, cow, lion, duck, monkey and chicken. She can match puzzle pieces to the places they go....she can not yet put the pieces in without help though, but I'm sure that will be next. She can say almost all of the letters in the alphabet (not in order) although she did say R S T U the other day. She can get dressed herself if it's something simple like a night gown or a loose fitting shirt. She says thank you almost anytime you hand her something, she also says thank you anytime she hands you something! :) I'll tell her it's time to get her shoes on, she goes and finds them, brings them to me and then sits herself down and waits for me to put them on. Same goes with diaper changes, I tell her it's time and she goes running for the changing table and waits for me. She is such a helper.....I will make juice for both girls and give 2 cups to Charlotte and she will bring Maddie her cup. She can eat completely independently with both a spoon and a fork although sometimes she wants you to load her spoon for her and then she will put it in her mouth. And my 16 month old daughter is growing out of some of her 2T clothes. Oh my. They don't stay babies for long!
