so much to learn

sorry it's been awhile since i have written, but i have been really busy. i've been working on mathematics, literature, and dance pretty hard.

i can count 1 and 2. i can't quite get my thumb down for 2, but i know i'm supposed to. i recognize the numbers, but the letter s looks alot like 2, especially if it is capitalized, so sometimes that still throws me off. i can also do 5 (i mean, come on, it's so easy, just open your hand). i watch when mom, dad, or bec, do 3 and 4, but i'm still just thinking about it.

reading is amazing. i had no idea how many fascinating stories were out there. i love having someone read the same book over and over, especially if they have animals, because then i get to make the noises. my mom swears that i can recognize the letter b, but that is yet to be confirmed, although she is convincing bec.

i have added a new squat dance move to my swaying. mom says its good for my leg muscles. but the big news is that i can do all the motions to itsy bitsy spider. mom and dad are trying to get some video footage to post, but everytime the camera comes out i stop everything and go for the lens cap dangling from the camcorder. i hope it won't be too long before dad lets me have a go at using the camera. he and bec are pretty greedy with the cameras.

my vocabulary is taking off. my words don't sound all that different sometimes (for example, "gah" means flower and car), but somehow i make myself understood. i love talking...loud and alot.

mom and i have started working on learning stairs (don't worry, there are impenetrable gates at the top and bottom now). she keeps lecturing me on how heavy i am getting and has started taking the bus when it's just the two of us as much as possible. (easier on/off than lugging me in my buggy down the steps at the tube station). there are a couple stations that don't have stairs, those are her favourites.

i pretty much spend all day every day pointing to things and going "mmm". that means, what is that? and i want to know what everything is. over and over again. sometimes it seems to exhaust the grown ups, but there is so much to learn.

i can't believe my dad posted pics of me in my bathing embarrassing.
