First, her animal sounds:
The cow says-"oooo"
The horse says-"neigh neigh"
The dog says-"fffffff"
The cat says a high pitched "mmmmm"
The sheep says-"ah-ah-ah-ah-ah"
The chicken says-"gah-gah-gah-gah" really fast
She does a really great groan sound for the lion
Mama and Dada
Nai Nai (Robert's mom)
Lao Lao (my mom)
Baba=grandpa-Robert and I have pictures of our dads up on the wall and have shown them to Lily. She calls them both Baba, which interestingly is the Chinese word for dad. She loves to point at the pictures, say "Baba!" and give them kisses...too sweet.
Baby-she just loves babies!
she calls her bib "b"
oval-she knows several shapes but that's the only one she can say so far
Elmo (she no longer says "Emma" which I thought was adorable!)
puh-puh=purple...funny she knows how to say mommy's favorite color
sheeyna=Shayna (our dog)
Uh-oh-sometimes she drops things on purpose just so she can say that
No-no-no!=no explanation necessary...that's a fun one!
She now calls Larry "Weebee". How cute is that!
My new favorite is what she says after we pray. We pray with her before every meal and right before we put her to bed for the night. Right after we say "Amen", Lily says "A-nah!"
Those are a few I can think of off the top of my head. I am constantly amazed even more by how much she understands. I'll ask her to do something I've never asked and she will go do it. She just loves music. She starts bobbing her head back and forth when we ask her if she wants music on, and when I sing to her, she does the sign for "more" when the song is over. She LOVES her books and brings them to us one by one to read to her...she could do this all day. She did her first somersault yesterday all by herself...I'm thinking gymnastic classes may be in order pretty soon! She is such a sweet little girl and I thank God every day for blessing us with this little miracle. It feels like she has been with us forever.
Lily and mommy on Lily's first carousel. She was apprehensive at first, but she must have liked it because she asked to go again with her daddy!
Lily got this baby for Christmas from her great aunt Valerie. Once we opened it, Lily grabbed the baby's bottle and immediately pretended to feed her baby without us even showing her how...she is a genious I tell you!
Lily showing my grandma her favorite book...Ten Little Ladybugs.
Lily's newest face...we call this one "kissy-lips".
