It seems that Julia's vocabulary is increasing every day. She's learning new words all the time...Will is constantly saying, "She said 'app-pull'! I didn't know she could say 'apple'!" Even he seems proud, amazed, and aware at how much more she's talking lately. She's also started to put more words together, like "Daddy bye-bye" or "Ju-ju milk" (she calls herself Ju-ju and it is adorable). Some of my favorites are "Ahdonknow" ('I don't know'...said as one word and with a little shrug) and "All gone!". Of course, we're still having to do a lot of translating and a lot of guessing on many of the words, but I love to hear her babble and try to express herself. Things are getting much easier as she can ask for the things she wants, although she does get frustrated when we can't understand her requests. Luckily, many are very straightforward, like tonight at dinner, when we asked her if she wanted anything else. She happily replied with "Cheese!"
Some of the new words I've noticed in the past few weeks include car, airplane, truck, tree, watch, cookie, cheese, teeth, bath, juice. The one phrase I can't wait to hear..."Love you". I hope it's coming soon!
