Things have been busy! For her birthday, from her Grandma and Grandad (Finken) she got a months worth of unlimited classes at Gymboree! I have been trying to take her there as much as we can - and she LOVES it. I will be sure to bring my camera today when Eric and I take her to the Play and Learn class at noon.
Darby CAN walk. She just decides not to. She takes about 5 steps now and then plops herself down. When people ask us if she is walking, we say no - because really she isn't - I don't think taking steps and walking are exactly the same thing. She is close, I think probably by September we will have a full fledged walker on our hands. I am in NO hurry for it!
She is talking so much, here is a list of her vocabulary to date:
- buh (for Billie our dog)
- thank you
- see (she usually says "oooooh see?" and points to something)
- this (when she is showing you or handing you something)
- what's that?
- num num (seems as though we taught her this for food and she tells us when she's hungry now - or points to food/pictures of food and says it!)
Darby is growing by leaps and bounds. She is definitely turning the corner into toddler hood. Here is a video I took the other night of her talking on her cell phone (an old cell phone we had lying around). Sometimes she even talks to her friend Jack on the phone (pretends to) and it is hilarious - she will blabber and then say "Jack,Jack, Jack", it's so funny! She is such a ham, enjoy!
