New Words every day
Roxie is really starting to talk. Last night she would say " More mash please or more chips please." She is has fallen madly in love with her piggy from the Spam Museum and every time she wakes up or goes down for a nap the first thing she will say is " Where is piggy?" I personally hope that is the only thing she falls madly in love with until she is 24 years old and its time to get married.
If I had to count how many words she knows on her very own without any help I would say about 20 words she will say though out the day. She will also copy any thing someone says to her. She tells me when she poops and wants to sit on the potty when I am going to the bathroom BUT she will wear her her wet diaper all day long if I let her. She has been trying to say the blessing by herself and that is very entertaining. Its just crazy how clear she can talk when she wants to.
I called Grandma Bremner the other day and Roxie wanted so badly to talk to her gammy. She was in tears until I gave her the phone which she hugged and kisses. Its so cutie because she gave Grandma Bremner the nickname while we were in Austin Mn for the 4th of July. Roxie misses her Gammy and loves to talk to her whenever she gets the chance.
A little girl can be sweeter (a badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. she can jitter around, and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves yet just when you open your mouth she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes. A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.
