New words

D has put some new words into her vocabulary.

Last week she was thrilled with the poppies on our coats and learned to say "poooppppi." But really she wanted to be eating the poppies with pins. That didn't exactly work. She's also learned the word 'out'. Most often it's used in this context, "Darcy get out of there," as her latest trick involved going into a room and then closing the door behind her. It doesn't really matter if you're in there or not or even if the lights are on. I open the door and she'll then say "ooouttt," with a real strong Canadian accent.

Also new is the scowl that she'll give us when she doesn't get her way. She's got quite the little attitude for a little girl. Almost 18 months, going on 18 years. Great.

Wait till she hits puberty! Kolina is 10 1/2 and her hormones are already raging. She's got the Rolling of the Eyes down pat when I say anything. Honestly, I must be a complete moron in her eyes. The next few years are going to be quite a challenge.

Right on! Auntie Stef's influence is far reaching!

She likes the ceiling fan that we have in the dining room. She's always marvelled at it and spins her hand around and says, "Baaaa!" But we know she means fan. I was trying to get to do the "F" sound, but it ended up in her buzzing her lips and making a siren noise. Just like a good little brass player!
