My joy for today is two year old mispronunciations.
Our 2-year old, Molly, has a better vocabulary than her older brother at the same age. I think his presence and constant talking to her and at her is helpful. She can sing many full songs, say her ABCs, count to 12, and carry on a conversation. Most of the time she speaks very, very softly and we are always asking her to speak louder. We don’t seem to ever have that problem with Noah… However, she is at the age where she mispronounces so many words, and it is so adorable! Some of our favorites:
Noah = Doah
Princess = P (which her Daddy uses to call her his “Precious P”)
That most recent word has been used often and is one of the two main reasons for my lack of postings recently. We have been doing every day swimming lessons with Molly for the past three weeks. When we started, she cried the entire time and kicked and screamed on the way to the pool. Today, she jumped in the water to her beloved teacher, Miss Lisa, swam underwater, floated, and made it to the side by herself. As soon as she got out of the water, she said, “I love swimming Mommy.” It has been great to see her progress and her newfound love of the water, but it has been exhausting for me to have to drive half an hour away every day.
The second reason that I have been a reclusive blogger is the plague of colds and flu that have been going around our home. It has been pretty much all I can handle to maintain my daily responsibilities and fall into bed around 9 pm. All five of our family members have not been healthy at the same time for at least the past month. Praying so much for a time of health for at least a few weeks!
This explanation is mostly for my most faithful blog reader, my brother. More on him in a future post. 🙂
Signing off for today and looking forward to Molly waking up from her nap and greeting me with her beautiful voice and cuddly arms. Enjoy your joys for today!
