Another trip to North Carolina
June is already here! So much to talk about since the last post. First, Naomi's vocabulary has exploded. They say by 18 months they should have 10-15 words, she has about 30 and seems to add a new one every day! Her newest tries are body parts, teeth, chin, and nose. She is getting very good at naming or pointing to most. We love doing "This little piggy" and do it over and over again (she says "gen" with a question mark). She has also started doing it to her babies and to mommy and daddy's toes too if we say the rhyme. She loves hearing songs and rhymes. Many of her words are not quit ... more
A few updates on Naomi
Well, I thought it might be time to make another post, since it has only been 25 days and that is practically forever in baby time, right? So, the funniest thing is one of her new words, car. But, she says it like she is a Boston pirate, like carrre (kind of like the "A" from "care" but a little more "E" and then a couple of "R"s. Maybe one of these days I will get it on video! Other words she is working on: squirrel (skir), cheerios (cheeris), toes, shoes. She is being a good momma to her babies and giving them her sippy and her cookie. Today I asked if she was trying to change ... more
Spring is here!
Well, Naomi is finally starting to use Mama for me. Sometimes she still says Dada, but it is a start! Yeah!! This week has been really funny and cute. She is starting to kiss her bears and her babies and mommy and daddy all the time. She was kissing CJ and I throughout church this morning, so cute! She is also trying to share her sippy cup with her animals and babies and sometimes share her cheerios or a bowl of "food" with them. Funny girl. We went into the back yard today for the first time this spring and walked around. She wasn't too excited about the grass and leaves, b ... more
Naomi continues to entertain
First, let me just say a big thank you to uncle Nick who made some updates to the website recently. It looks great! So, at last report Naomi had an ear infection, but that is all cleared up now. She did have a possible drug rash from the amoxicillan, but it is not technically an allergic reaction, so that is good. They may just avoid that drug if possible. Fun stuff, Naomi has learned to knock. It is so funny. She stands at the window and knocks at the squirrels and birds. She loves squirrels by the way. She likes the birds, but I think the squirrels are easier to see and a l ... more
A first time for everything...
Well, little Naomi is 15 months old already, well really 15 months and 9 days. She is getting to be a big girl, and her visit to the dr. today confirms that. She is 32 1/4 inches tall (95%), and 24lbs 8.5 oz (75%). She is slimming down according to the charts, but still has her tummy. Developmentally she is about 18 months, so doing very well. The worst news today was that she has her first ear infection, boo. Poor thing has been off this week, but is also working on pushing a molar out, so we just thought it was teething. She wasn't even bothering her ear much. I have taken her i ... more
So much to talk about since our last post
Wow, mid February already, where did the time go???? Well, so much has changed since the end of December I'm sure I won't remember it all. First, Naomi definitely has a running gait now. She mostly uses it going after Murrey, or Amber at the grandparents house. It is the cutest! Sometimes she walks around with her head and chest up and puffed out and clomps her feet, that is just funny. Sometimes she also likes to "fly" as I call it: leans forward a little and puts her arms out behind her. She likes her dress shoes now and likes to bring them to us to put on her, and just this week ... more
Reminiscing about 2010
Wow, 2010 is nearly over. So many things have happened this year in Naomi's life. Never a dull moment that is for sure. Well, I never posted about her 1 year dr appointment, so here is her info: 22 lbs, 10.5 oz; 31 inches long. She is still in the 95% for height and about 80-85% for weight. Her devolpment was 13-14 months. Some other things that I missed posting about: For about a week or maybe 2, Naomi was saying "uh-oh" when she would drop something or fall down. She went through a stage of shrugging her shoulders all the time. It was so funny when she did it when you asked ... more
Naomi had her first birthday
Naomi's Bday party was a lot of fun, with lots of family and friends. Naomi wasn't sure what to do with the cake and when we stuck her fingers in it she got really upset. So, we gave her a little and then moved on. She loved opening presents, but wanted to play with what she got and it was difficult to move on to the next thing. On her actual birthday, we went out to dinner and Naomi has meatloaf, eggs, fruit and bread for dinner, and then tried bread pudding for dessert. Yummy! She is loving sitting in our laps and looking at books. All of her different toys that play music are a ... more
I've given you some time to read the last post, but now I have more to write.
Naomi is getting much better at giving hugs to people. Kisses are still hit and miss, but oh so cute. She is also figuring out how to give a "High Five." We work on stretching in the mornings, but I usually have to do it first and say streeeeetch, then she puts her arms up over her head and stretches too. Let's see, her fifth tooth came in about a week ago. Dad actually discovered it! She still loves putting things in and taking them out, and pushing anything around. She is also very attached to her stuffed animals, especially the Build-a-Bear that Mommy and Daddy made for her and ... more
Lots to talk about
Well, it probably wouldn't be so hard if I posted more often, but just when I think I have some time, it is gone! Wow, Naomi is changing so much, and is such a smart cookie, if I do say so myself. Anywho, right after the last post we had some BIG event weekends. We went to Rombach's pumpkin patch with some fam and had a nice couple of hours. Naomi went on her first pony ride and did great! She also picked out her own pumpkin, though we did have to narrow it down to two for her. Sunday she went to a wedding and went on her first carriage ride. I think she really enjoyed that too ... more
