New words are normal around here everyday now. She is trying so hard to talk and if she doesn’t know words, she makes them up. She’s also not a phone person (not sure where she gets that from) but the same night she got on the phone with Grandma and Grandpa W and said hello a few times, love you and bye bye. They were so happy to hear all those words. Then later on she said to Grandpa C “hi Poppa”. Needless to say, all her grandparents were very happy. (Grandma C was just happy she talked to grandpa).
I know she is showing so many signs, that’s why we are doing this but it could stil take a LONG time. I think the more she talks the more progress we will make. We don’t want to force her just yet, there’s still plenty of time.
She puts my shoes on a lot, like most children do, and when she put my sneakers on I just laughed….she looked so funny with those big sneaker on…….
Then we came accross the sea lions outside and they were barking up a storm, but that didn’t scare either one of them.
Next were my favorite, the penquins. I love these little guys, they are so cute! Holly and Jakob seemed to think so too. One of the penquins was swimming around showing off so it came up to the glass many times and they got to see him close up. It was pretty cool.
Then we went inside and they both really enjoyed the big fish tank that’s inside with the sharks and all kinds of big fish (and small ones too). Here are some sharks we saw……
After we had lunch we saw the Sea Lion show. Holly’s not quite ready to sit and watch a show, but Jakob did great! We saw most of the show before Holly just could not sit there anymore. We sat in the front row and the seals came out of the water right in front of us a few times so that was really good. They both seemed to enjoy that part, Karen and I did too.
After the show we went to see the whales one more time then we headed out. We were there over 2 hours and they were both ready for a nap. I tried to get a picture of them but this is what i got…..
and then when it was time to say goodbye, Jakob gave Holly a kiss…..
And this is what happened on the way home in our car (and I’m told the same thing happened in Karen’s car)…
It was a fun day!!!
