More Words!

Okay, I think a few posts ago I said Samantha was saying "ball" and "baby". Now she's much better at them, and you can distinguish between the two of them. She's also added "bear" (behhhh--kind of like she's saying it with an English accent, thanks to daddy), "kitty" (toto--her speech therapist said this is good--although she's got the wrong vowel, she's got the staccato sound of the "t" in kitty) and "more" (I haven't heard this myself, but Steve heard it twice the other day. This does not work when baby is hungry and impatient, however.) So, including mama (just smacking her lips together twice) and dada, this makes 7 words!! It's frightening how much of a sponge she's suddenly become.

We spent the weekend up in New Jersey visiting Mom Mom, Pops and Uncle Josh. It was nice to go up there, but it's so crazy to try to pack, even just for overnight! It's amazing how many bags we take up for Sammi--1 shoulder bag of toys, 1 diaper bag, 1 shoulder bag of feeding stuff, a pack and play for her to sleep in, and her clothes (several choices since we don't know what the weather will be like at any given moment), mercifully smushed into our own bag of clothes. And this time we returned with the addition of a rocking horse. It's beautiful--mostly cloth, covered with a hand-made blanket of sorts and a leather bridle--and was a birth gift from Mom Mom & Pops. Samantha's going to have so much fun on that when she's a little bigger!

I think the way she says bear totally has to do with daddy! She's going to have an accent. Too cute.
