Isabella is at that age where she literally learns to say at least one new word every day. It's so amazing to me that I can work so hard to teach her a certain one, but it's the words she just picks up by listening to everyday speech that she ends up repeating over and over. Sometimes to my delight and sometimes to my embarrassment.
She recently began saying "sit" I'm not even going to go into the argument that took place between Tyler and myself over that one. We finally figured out she was actually saying "sit" when we were sitting down for supper one night and she pointed at her highchair and emphatically declared, "SIT SIT!!" It was like she was desperately trying to clue us in.
I was cleaning up the living room this morning, throwing shoes into a basket, when Isabella came toddling up to me holding one of Tyler's flip-flops. She held it out to me and said "shew? shew?" I had to crack up because her pronunciation of the word is more like when I take her shoes off and smell her feet, I always say "Shew-wee Bella!" Anyways...I just realized that now more than ever I need to start being super conscientious of everything, because there's two little eyes watching me, and these days she's a sponge soaking up every action, which she very effectively proved to Tyler and me the other evening when she started picking her nose right in front of us. Uhm...how do I teach her that you do that at home and not in public?
Ok, for all the grands and great-grands I'm including an updated list of ALL the words she says now, and as soon as the battery charger Tyler ordered for our video camera comes in, I'm going to include a video post, can't wait!

and my personal favorite, "Tickle tickle tickle!"
Well, I think that just about does it!
