Every day the girls amaze me at what they learn. Here are some of the latest developments that I have to note - and maybe this list will help remind me of what needs to be videotaped.
Leah throws the ball any time we give it to her. Upon learning this however, she now likes to throw everything. She definitely knows what a ball is though because if I tell her to go get the ball, she crawls right toward it. Most of the time she will say "Baw" when I say ball, but again I am not sure if she knows what she is saying.
If Hannah has a toy, she knows how to "share" (only with me though, NOT her sister). If I see her with something, and hold out my hand and ask, "May I have it?" she very gingerly puts in into my hand. Then laughs hysterically when I give it back to her. Sometimes if I just hold out my hand she immediately gives me what she has. That could be useful...
Leah waves now when she hears the word "bye bye" unless she is around strangers. Then she makes a total liar out of me. Funny thing is, we had actually been using the word "hi" and waving at her. Bye bye was second (I do not know why we went in this order other than we dont normally go away from them so maybe Hi was more common). she had been waving when she saw us wave, but now if she just hears bye bye she starts waving. I was on the phone with Matt telling him of this accomplishment, and Leah who was across the room heard this exciting word and started waving.
Hannah likes to kiss me right smack on the lips and holds the kiss for quite a while. And it is a little more open mouthed than I would like. I cannot help but laugh! Leah will do it sometimes but she just kinda presses her mouth against my face very quickly.
The word "no" is really really funny to Leah now. I do not know why because most times we have to say it, it is rather sternly. But Leah automatically cracks up when she hears it!!! What do we do about that?
Leah also immitates a monkey. I call them both little monkeys and one day to get her attention I made a monkey sound, which Leah found hilarious. So I repeated (of course). Now she makes her version of a monkey sound. Haha.
Some things they do are their attempts of copying us, and I cannot explain them, so I hope to get all this on video sometime soon. Just wanted to note these things though for now!
