born December 23, 2008
6 lbs. 10 oz.
2 years old now and up to 25 lbs.
Her sweetness is wonderful, but she is by no means weak.
She pushes her little weight around to get all the snuggles and kisses and tickles she can.
She hardly ever can share her momma with her brother...
(oh what a feeling it is to be fought over!)
She would read books all day if she could without interruption.
oh wait, now it's puzzles.
or climbing her brother's couch-cushion fort.
or chewing gum (loudly!)
oh...it's all a phase, isn't it?
When Owen was amazing us with is speech, I wrote a list on this blog of all the words he was clearly saying. Gabby, as mentioned, does not say much (clearly); does she need to? :-)
I will say she makes up for it in her agile climbing, sweet demeanor, and her independence.
Here is the short list, regardless! ;-)
owie (as in her brother, not getting hurt)
away (as in "go away!")
bi bu (big bird)
ocer (oscar (the grouh))
toe (toast and the body part)
doggy (sounds like daddy)
daddy (sounds like doggy)
col(d) (sometimes a silent d)
no (for snow and no)
gung (gum--is that spanish?)
na-na (num-nums--our vitamins)
MINE (thanks to Elodie!)
toot (yes, toot)
ni-ni time (naked time)
coffee (a version of that)
puzzle (you know, something like that)
Yes, I suppose there could be more, but not much more.
We love her voice, her language, her giggles, her song.
She doesn't say the words, but she can hum a mean "Twinkle Twinkle"
