Her vocabulary is around 100 words now (not bragging or exaggerating, just stating facts). i haven't written them down in a while b/c it's just too many to remember lately. she's saying "thank you", night night, bye bye, there it is, backpack (thanks to Dora!), she'll say "ninny please" when she wants to nurse. LOL she's learning to ask for whatever she wants and follow it up with "please". she's extremely polite---she almost always says thank you if you hand her something or fulfill a request for her. she asked for a "chip" the other day and then said "piece" b/c she wanted a "piece of chip". she's reminding us at dinner to say the blessing. if we don't automatically say it when we sit down to eat, she clasps her little hands together for us to pray. she has pretended to be a dog today--running around/crawling with her tongue hanging out and panting (4/16/0. also today she is running her fingers across the words line by line in a book and chattering away--she's pretending to read! i'm pretty amazed.
she's still pottying everyday too but no where near potty trained.
this is the only kind of smile she'll give nowadays. LOL

knows the numbers one, five and nine. Can hold up one finger and say one, hold up all five fingers and say five.
walked up to tv and started pointing out letters and saying them
counts from one to five if I hold up that number of fingers or show him the numbers in print.
Repeats ABC's after us, if he has trouble saying a letter he will say "O".
Went camping for the first time, drove the boat with papa and daddy.
first hair cut
Has his first "girlfriend" Anna, at daycare. He will say "Anna, lala"
Vocabulary is huge! I wish I could have kept up better on dates...ugh!
Putting together wooden puzzels of shapes, pictures, letters and numbers. Sings itsy bitsy spider and makes the motions. Rides tricycle. Knows his numbers consitantly up to five and can recognize many numbers and letters by site. Will point at letters and numbers in print and on signs and say what they are. Can count to ten repeating after us in spanish. Vocabulary would be hard to list. Can repeat just about anything, although it sounds a bit funny at times. Still calls all animals with wings a "duck".
9/19/08 Miles is growing so fast. I can't believe how wonderful this entire experience has been! He is 22 months old and still seems a bit ahead of the game in most areas. Our Parents as Teachers visitor claims he is a couple years ahead in some areas and I'm very proud of our accomplishments. Working full time, I am still able to spend a lot of time with him. It always makes me feel good when his daycare asks me..."where did he learn how to do that?" Because I assume they must be working with him too. Here's a bit of what we are working on...
As of now he can do the following on a regular basis... count from 1 to 15 without missing a beat, and tries to get to 20. Can sing the ABC song, makes mistakes from D to P, but can say P through Z without fail and then ends the song properly. He can read his alphabet and numbers (0-10). Recognizes a few words on paper...freaked me out once when I wrote his name and he pointed to it and said "Miles"! So we now are teaching him mommy, daddy, papa, etc. We are working on writing numbers, but he can only do the number one right now. He sings several songs, but the best yet is "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star", and can sing it all the way through most of the time. He knows the following shapes and colors circle, traingle, square, oval, red, yellow, green, blue, purple, orange, black, brown, white, and pink. He can draw a circle and tries to make a face...he will scribble little lines where the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and hair/beard goes. He is speaking in sentences most of the time. Working on potty training...but I haven't pushed it too hard. No bottles, loves to drink from a cup or straw, but I usually give a sippy for spill factor. Only has binky now at night. Sleeps with mom and dad during the night and in crib at nap time.....I can't stand to sleep without him. He starts a new daycare next week. Very excited about that! That's about all I can think of for now. We are doing great and loving life!
