Harper seems to understand so many new things lately and new words are popping up left and right.
Lately she demands, "Draw! Draw!" or a slightly less understandable "Color! "Color!" (sounds the same as her word for towel to me) and forces a crayon or piece of chalk into your hand. We're working on politeness, but we're realizing that in her mind it's kind of a separate subject. We ask her to say "Please" and she refuses, but whenever we're done with the activity, if you ask her to say "Please", she says, "Peeeees" without any trouble.
She got five little tops while we were in Kansas, so another favorite is "Top! Top!"
She has a word for "sun" that I really couldn't begin to spell, but it's the same word every time. Some of her new words: balloon, tree, cup, cat, tray (from her high chair). I love listening to her baby babble when she's playing by herself. I can only imagine what she's pontificating over.
She still says all the old words/names: One of the funniest to me though is still how she talks about Papaw Mark. We go through all of our names, Mama, Dada, Grammy (MiMi), Grandma, Grandpa, and then when we get to Papaw, she says, "Papawwwww" and does this guffawing-chuckling thing that Mark always does. Never fails to entertain.
Anything that resembles a purse - pretty much anything with a handle long enough including buckets gets hitched over her arm and carried around. She loves to collect things and then take them out.
That's it for me for the moment. Back to work!!
