The Gift of Gab!

Darby has definitely been given the gift of gab. Our little chatty cathy has already added quite a few words to her vocabulary. Here they are, in no particular order!


Mama, Mom, Ma, Mommy (she calls me all of them)
Papa, Poppie
Buh (Billie, our dog)
Book
Cup
Bowl
Juice
Sides (from a song at Gymboree were she goes side to side)
Baby
Ball
Shoes
Hi
Bye
Flower
Thank You
Mi Mi (sleep)
Num num (eat)
Jack
This
See
What's that
Cracker
Apple
Kick
Poo-poo (I'm trying to teach her to tell me when she goes!)
Phone
Clock
Meow (cat)


She has a book that I really think has helped teach her words like - kick - which she likes to point to and say, and actually kick her leg!

Speaking of books, Darby is a bookworm! She loves going into her room and opening the cabinet in her dresser and reading her books.

Darby is also a couch climber now. She would actually climb right over the top of it if we didn't stop her. She loves to climb up on the couch with her books and look at them. I find her this way multiple times throughout the day. It's adorable. Every time I see her sitting there on the couch with her books, I can't believe how much she has grown in 14 months.
