"Baby" talk

Bryn is saying new words everyday, and she is such a riot. I suppose that technically she's still a baby, but you'd never know it by listening to hear speak. I just want to document some of the cute things she is saying for posterity, because those things are too quickly forgotten.

Yesterday in the car, she was counting. From the backseat, I hear her slowly counting:

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 -5 -6 - chicken

G and I broke into a fit of laughter - I could barely drive. Only later did I realize that to Bryn, the words "seven" and "chicken" are pronounced in much the same way.

Yesterday, she was far too excited to be getting dressed. As soon as her clothes were on, she wildly ran around the house exclaiming "shirt!" "pants!" - which really isn't that funny - until you realize that she pronounces them "shit!" "plants!" - with perfect diction.

Whenever we meet someone, whether it be someone we know or a stranger, Bryn has to make the introductions. She'll point to me and say "das a mommy", then to dad, "das a daddy", then to g "das a Gacie", and finally she'll pound on her chest and proudly proclaim "Binney".

Lately she wants to go to bed, and will cry for her "bees" (bee blanket) so she can lay in bed. And all of a sudden she's become such a wonderful sleeper {{KNOCK ON WOOD}} that I just lay her down, say good night, and leave the room without another peep. Sometimes in the night though, she'll wake up. She'll call from her room funny things like "I need a mom" or "Binny need dink". Usually all I have to do is take in a drink of water, and she'll go right back to sleep. And its really only once or twice a month - so she's gotten better. (it makes me wonder if she was just waking up to nurse because she wanted me - but that's a whole other post)

I love my little monkey. Her tantrums are getting better too, and she's so loving and sweet. She gives the best hugs ever (and that's saying a lot, considering she's competing against G). She loves to eat too - especially spicy food and beans. She'll drink salsa right from the dish. Bryn is a funny girl, and I really think she's got a crazy sense of humor. She definitely keeps our family laughing.

It's so fun when they start to talk and you can understand. My baby is in the "something is wrong-I am just going to sit/stand here and scream about it until help comes" phase. It is driving me crazy! I love the 1 2 3 4 5 6 chicken. That's great!

Too cute! :) Yay for the sleep. Syd has figured out how to get out of her crib easily and we have come to the realization that the toddler bed has to come out. :(

That is so cute! I love this stage when they are just learning to tell you what's going on in those crazy sweet little heads. :)
