A Wife Loved Like The Church

Once you start, you can’t stop

Posted on: October 6, 2009

Julia has started talking.

A lot.

She’s been talking, but her vocabulary seems to have grown by leaps and bounds just in the last month. It seems like she’s adding a new word every day or two. In fact, this past Sunday she added, Sister/Sissy to the list. She’s never gotten down “Hannah”. She always says “Nah” or signs “Hannah”. I’ve been working with her on “HAN-nah”, but she seems to get more frustrated than anything else.

Sunday Julia was sitting next to Hannah and kept saying “sss”. I asked her “Are you saying “sister”? Is that your sissy?” She nodded yes and from there has started calling Hannah “sissy”. I gotta admit, I LOVE it! I was (still am) called “sissy/sis” by my family growing up and really wanted Julia to go by “sissy”. But it seems that Hannah will be “sissy”.

Speaking of Sissy…

Hannah is so close to rolling over! She keeps rolling onto her side, but can’t quite manage to get all the way over without help. I’ve been practicing with her; she’ll get on her side and I will start rocking her back and forth, then roll her over on her tummy. She thinks its a pretty funny game and gets quite a kick out of it. We’ve also had her sitting in her Bumbo seat. She loves it! We put her on the table while we eat dinner and she just laughs and spits up. It’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself. πŸ™‚

i thought after reading your title you were going to say “running” πŸ™‚ but talking is great too!
hope you enjoyed your starbucks! i do the same thing! πŸ™‚

Don’t feel so bad about Julia not getting “Hannah” down. “H” is a difficult letter to pronounce. Having one at the start of my name has allowed me to become an expert on the subject. Until they were 4 or 5 years old, I was always call “ah-ye” by my cousins and kids I babysat for, and then “Ha-ye” for another few years. It is a difficult thing to say apparently!

Jamie – I was totally gonna write about running, because when I thought of the post title I thought of running! Ha. But then I realized if it’s not eating, then I can’t really say I’ll stick with it for very long. πŸ˜‰
