My sweet girl has been growing her vocabulary almost on a daily basis. This morning she said kiss for the first time when I asked for a good morning kiss. It's always something new with her.
Isabelle at 22 months. She'll turn 2 a few days before Christmas.
If you remember, I've been working with her on basic phonics. She has nearly all of her letter sounds from A-Z now, although she only knows one sound per letter. She has a Leap Frog phonics toy that magnetically sticks on the fridge. She frequently plays with it while I'm cooking dinner or cleaning, and this works well to reinforce the things I've been teaching her. Isabelle surprised me recently, however, by really showing off what she's been learning. She and I were playing with her wooden alphabet blocks, and I discovered that inadvertently, she has managed to learn 1/4 of the alphabet, by sight. Yep, she can recognize many of the letters already! It's amazing to me the way that kids are like little sponges. They soak up everything without you realizing it, and then when you squeeze the sponge, you get to see what they've been soaking up.
