Return and words

We are back from our camping extravaganza. All went well. There are photos and stories, but I don't have time to post them until I get past a current deadline at work. I was up until 2:30 last night (at home) working and I'm staying at the office late tonight. We're supposed to post the final documents tomorrow evening. So life should be back to "normal" by the weekend. Although the unpacking might not get done until the weekend. We'll see how much R did during his day off today.

New words include:
Peek-a-boo ("peek-boo")
Robby (her froggy's name)
Quack quack ("ack ack" when she sees water and expects to see ducks)
Hoot (what an owl says)
Doo-dee-doo (as in a rooster says Cock-a-Doodle-Doo)
Nanny (my mom)
Ba-pa (my dad)

And we are starting to hear some 2 word phrases, such as:
Hi Daddy
Night-Night puppy
Bye-bye kitty

She is also repeating after us, but the words she repeats don't necessarily come back again. And she is more insistent about talking to us, meaning that she gets frustrated when we don't understand. Sometimes we can figure it out and sometimes we just have to distract her with something else. We are deciphering things as best we can as they come. And paying attention to context and where she's pointing can really help.

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few, but I must get back to work. Just a brief afternoon break!

Amelia's Grandpa is Ba-pa, too. I am loving the new words, sometimes I'm stopped in my tracks because it's so awesome our girls are talking! Glad you're back and had fun!
