Everyday, Rebecca is starting to say more and more words. She still mumbles most of the time, and still DOESN'T call me MaMa, but she does manage to say the following words/phrases.
- who's that
- what's that
- ba ba (bottle or brother or basket)
- da da (this is what she says the most)
- boo (for balloon)
- meow (this is her new word and the way she says it is so sweet)
She is still not walking on her own yet, but I'm not worried about it, especially since she is already our little dare devil, so when she starts walking, watch out. Nicholas didn't start walking on his own until about 16-17 months.
And speaking of Nicholas, he is the topic for the One Little Word - Captured challenge for my word patience this week.
It is all about him sucking his two fingers. He has been doing this very annoying (to us) and unhealthy (for him/his teeth) act since he was a baby. I don't remember exactly when he started, but it's been way too long. He has gotten better in the fact that he only will do this at home, because he knows when he is out and about there are lots of germs everywhere. However, as soon as he walks in the door at home, he goes right into the bathroom to wash his hands, and in go the two fingers.
His two front (permanent) teeth are now starting to move forward because he is pushing them forward with his fingers. We just don't know what to do. We have tried an award calendar; we have tried to tell him that if he wants to suck his two fingers he can only be in one particular room to do it. Nothing is working! Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks for listening!
