Hi everyone!  Sorry it has been a while since our last post!  We have been very busy playing :-).  Summer is loving to read, and walk, and talk!  Her words are exploding as she tries to name everything she sees.  Some of her newer ones lately are:
*NaNa (banana)
*Cheese (Cheese)
*Ga-ma (Grandma)
*Ga-pa (Grandpa)
*Na-na (Summer)
*Cock (Clock)
*Ight (Light)
*Ruff Ruff (for what does a puppy say)
*All Done
*nonono (no) (used in conjunction with shaking her head back and forth vigorously!)
*VroomVroom (Car)
*Pane (Airplane)
*Good (in response to "Summer, how are you?"
*Cucker (Caca for Tucker is now Cucker)
*"Come" , "Down", "Good Boy" ----commands we say to Tucker a lot!
*And many more that we don't always understand!

She is also understanding so much more than she can say.   She can go find what we ask her to find and bring it to us.  For example we will ask her to bring us a specific book, such as the "cow book" or the "baby book" or "Skippy Jon Jones"---her current favorite---and she will go get it.  I can ask her to go find a diaper, or her shoes, and she will climb upstairs and go find them.  I can ask her if she wants to eat and she will walk to her high chair.  It is really fun to start to communicate with her.

She is also starting to be a really good helper.  She can put something in the garbage when we ask her.  She puts her clothes down the laundry chute.  She puts her PJ's in her drawer and her blanket in her crib when she wakes up in the morning.

14.5 months is SUCH a fun age!

Yes, just a delightful age. Just when we think she couldn't get any cuter or more fun, she does! :) She definitely does a great job of expressing herself. Gotta love the "no no" with the head shake. :)
