Stella in August

Wow, I cannot believe my little baby will be 18 months in a week and a half. The time really passes you by if you're not careful! The strange thing is, I feel like she is older than 18 months. She just seems so grown up and mature. I guess I don't know what age 2 is like though. She is such a joy and a blessing. She is so smart and hilarious. She has a crazy memory and remembers things days and weeks later! That blows my mind. Usually it's things she has only heard or read a couple times. Last night I read her the book Pajama Time. The last page goes like this
It's Pajama Time
Hush, Hush
It's Pajama Time
Hush, Hush
It's Pajama Time
After we read that and Llama Llama Red Pajama I was rocking her and she kept saying Jamma Time, Hush Hush! It was so cute, it doesn't sound exactly right. She loves Llama Llama by the way, but she can't say Llama so she calls him Baby Mama. Haha!
We went to Squire Boone Caverns a few weeks ago and that was a lot of fun! We also just had girls weekend at the lake with Grammie, Aunt LuAnn and Erin. That was a blast too!

I made her a cute hat and crocheted one for her doll too. I was hoping if the doll wore one I could convince Stella to wear hers too. No dice. The most she left it on was 2 minutes. Well, Pawpaw was coming over to see her and I told her he wanted to see her wearing her new hat. That still didn't work and she kept ripping it off. So, Pawpaw pulled up out front and we looked out the door and I asked who it was. She said Pawpaw, and then looked at me and said HAT! with urgency. It was so sweet and funny because she knew he wanted to see her in the hat and she didn't have it on.
She says a bizillion words now and does mostly 3 word sentences and some 4 word sentences. She can call the cats by their nick names. Fatty McGee and Mister Meow. Sounds like Fat Mcgebee and Misour Meow. So adorable. I have not been blogging all the stuff I would like to, I am going to try to start!

So many words!

Stella is saying more & more words everyday! She does a whole lot of two word phrases and quite a few three word sentences. Like I have said a million times, I can't write it all down! This morning she woke up and when I went in she said Hi! Which isn't anything new, but just so sweet. Then we went in to see Daddy, he was putting his socks on. So, I asked Stella what daddy was doing. She said Put socks.

Last week I painted her toes for the first time. I was amazed she sat still. So I told her Don't touch! For the rest of the day she would show off her toes and say Mama. She would also say Ooooooh! And Don't Touch. Then after hearing it a couple times she can now say Mama paint toes.

She was pretending this morning. She ha a plastic lid that resembled a bowl and a crochet hook. She seemed to be acting like the lid was a bowl and the hook was a straw or a spoon. She was saying Mmmmm good! It's so cute, and I love it when she says Thank you very much. Thank you much is what comes out, but its so sweet. Nobody coached her to say it with the very much, she just picked that up all by herself.

Last night I read her one of her new books, My mommy Hung the moon. I think the repeat the title 2 or 3 times. By the end of the book she was saying Mama Hung moon. She is so bright, it really fits that her name means star.

She also really loves the nursery rhyme Hey diddle diddle. She loves the part about the cow jumping over the moon. We went to Borders last weekend and the have a huge cow jumping over the moon hanging from the ceiling. She really liked it. She can say Cow Jumping! With a huge emphasis on jumping!

I love her!
