So smart!

I feel like I say it over & over, but I can't help it. She just does so many amazing things every day. This morning she put "bye" & "daddy" together all by herself. Yesterday Jack was eating a banana and I asked Stella what he was doing. She clearly said "Jack eat baah". She is also able to name things by hearing the sound they make. So, if a loud car goes by, even if we can't see it, she will say car. She's also great with dogs and airplanes!

She can say SO many words! She will just pick them up after hearing them once. When she is in the bath tub she has a big cup with a handle, and a little "cup" that is really a shaving cream lid. She can hold the little cup and take the big one and pour water into the little cup.

She had taken the lid off Daddy's blue highlighter and decided to taste it!

Oh yeah, I can't remember if I already talked about this, but she can name and point out facial features. She says them all really well, and gets Hair, Ears, Mouth, Teeth, and Eyes right every time. Sometimes she will point to a mouth when she says Nose, but she usually gets it right. I wish I could remember every word and every cute thing she says. I will upload photos soon, been slacking on that!

This morning she was doing more word combinations, Sit Down and Silly Dog. She has said Sit Down before (sit sounds more like shit). Oh yea, and she is usually very clingy to me over her Daddy. But I had to wash my hair this morning and she woke up 30 minutes early at 6 a.m. So, I took her into our room, and told her she was going to lay down and sleep with Daddy. I thought I would just lay her down and she would cry and say Mom. But she did the exact opposite, she said Bye Mom, and went back to sleep!!!!! Haha, I was like what, huh?!?

She has really perfected her "Fish Face"!

Go Away!

Ahh my little baby is getting so big, and so smart! I love her to pieces! She is picking up new things left & right. When she was at my parents house last week, she was sitting with my dad and the cats were there. My dad told the cats to "Go Away!". He said it 2 times at the most, and Stella picked it up right away! She is not saying it in contex yet, it's actually the only thing she doesn't say in context. But she says it over and over and over! It is so funny, and hard not to laugh. We are trying not to acknowledge it so she doesn't start saying it on purpose, and all the time! She is good enough at "No", I am not ready for "Go Away!". lol

She has mastered some more animal sounds, these are the ones she does:
Sheep - Baa (she has been doing that one for months!)
Cow - Moo (sounds more like Mmmmmmm)
Duck - Quack (sounds like ack)
Snake - Ssssss
Bear - Grrr
Goose - Honk
Donkey - HeeHaw (she just does the Hee right now)
Rooster - Cock-a-doodle-do (so far she just does cock)
Puppy Dog - Bow Wow ( this is my favorite :)
Kitty - Meow Meow
Chick - Peep
Puffer Fish - Phfft (Like blowing air out your mouth)
Horse - Neigh
Owl - Who

There are probably a couple I forgot! She is just so bright and amazing. I am beyond blessed!

Outta Control!

Stella is so funny! She is totally into the copy cat phase now. She doesn't repeat everything yet, just certain ones. So, I was changing her diaper and I burped. I said excuse me, that burp was out of control! All of a sudden she says Control! I was like wow, so I repeated the phrase and she said it too. Sounds more like Outa-troll but it's so funny! Then later I am trying to get her to take a nap, rocking her and she starts saying Outta-Troll, Outta-Troll! OMG it was so hard not to laugh.

She also started calling me Mom this week. She will ask for me now which is so sweet.

My little lady!

Stella is getting so big! I am so sad I don't have more time to blog. I really need to make time! She does so many things every day. The other night I was rocking her for bed and I don't remember why, but she laughed and rolled her eyes! She is doing pretty good eating regular food, we've been doing that for about a month or two. She refuses to eat ANY vegetables, I have tried everything! I have found two ways to get her to, making spinach nuggets & putting mustard on the veggies. She loves mustard, she gets that from me! She really likes things that are sour like lemons and pickles. She has also does something really cute when I play Words With Friends. If you shake the phone the letters rearrange, and make a bubbly sound, Stella will shake her head back and forth.

She still LOVES books, and she is saying quite a few words now. I am making up a list and will post it soon! She is so smart, she will get my keys and go to the door, she even knows which key goes to the door and puts it up to the handle. She is 15 months now, so its only been a month since she started walking, but she is a pro at it! She is even really good with stairs.She can do itsy bitsy spider hand motions when I sing the song. She has such a great personality, and she is so funny!

She loves books, her favorites are:

The Lion's Paw, Wherever You Are, On The Night You Were Born, Knuffle Bunny, Little Blue Truck, Time For Bed, Where The Wild Things Are

Knuffle Bunny is a really good book, it's so cute! There is a part in the book where the 2 year old is mad because she lost her bunny. So, Trixie (the girl in the book), is yelling at her daddy in toddler babble. She says, AGGLE PLAGGLE FLABBLE! Wumpy Flappy! Snurp! Everytime I read that part Stella says "Yea!". It's so cute and funny, like she totally agrees with Trixie. Ahh I love her so much!

Here are some recent pictures!
