New Words and Pictures (aka bragging about my daughter)

Eating spicy Mexican rice and beans before church one Wednesday

Pearl's language skills have exploded recently. Only 3 months ago, she was still slightly behind the curve for language. She was using signs, but she wasn't even really babbling. Now, at nearly 13 months, she has branched out into 2- and 3-syllable words, the most notable one being Opposites - the name of one of her favorite books - and if you're not a facebook friend I'm so sorry you don't get to see the video proof, but alas, we mention real names. She even uses simple sentences like "I did it," "What is it," and her favorite, "do it."

Perhaps this is the perfectly normal course of development for an average or below-average child. If so, I don't want to hear about it. The fact that I talked earlier than my sister and she turned out to be smarter than me is completely irrelevant to this discussion. Pearl is brilliant, a veritable child genius. I am such a lucky mom. :-)

And, naturally, she is also the prettiest baby ever to walk the face of the Earth. And for that one we can provide ample proof:

Her hair is long enough now for pigtails!

    It's amazing that at her age she can say a 3-syllable word. And wow, simple sentences!?

    She is beautiful. I have pictures of her all over my fridge. :)

    To be fair, the difference in saying a 3-syllable word and a 3-word sentence (when all the words are 1 syllable) is negligible.

    "Do it" sounds more like "Do wuh" and
    "What is it" sounds more like "Whah dis uh"

    So she still needs to work on enunciation, but I'm still proud of her. :-)
