Edie has recently gone from mostly speaking with single words to more and more phrases and sentences. Among others, we now have the following phrases and bossy "sentences":
Do it (which, hilariously, she directs at herself when doing something difficult.)
Fancy shoes (her sparkly converse)
In general, she's mostly repeating the last two words of everything I say rather than just the very last word like used to be more common. She also has some ridiculously adult words and uses and pronounces them correctly. Like lipstick, email, chocolate, corner, genius (I told her yesterday that I was impressed with her words and she replied matter of factly, "genius"), stomach, forehead, eyeball and dark blue. And I realize I'm bragging at this point, but she really does amaze me. The doctor was even surprised by her verbal skills at our appointment this week and since Edie doesn't have an ounce of shy in her, she also shows them off to strangers all the time. A week or two ago we were at the vet picking up Maurice's food when Edie started a one sided conversation with the assistant there - pointing at her shoes and seriously telling her, "shoes" then at the street and saying "school bus", etc. The assistant said to me, "She's obviously very shy and will probably have a very difficult time making friends."
Well, she just might if she keeps using this line: "See ya, wouldn't want to be ya." See video below for proof:
Hilarious, right? This kid SLAYS ME.
