‘Bye-Bye’

Saturday, June 25th, 2005

Lauren’s getting very good at speech recognition. She could always do clapping when someone said ‘clap’ and now she starts waving when someone says ‘bye-bye’. Amazing.

Taking our fingers and walking

Friday, June 24th, 2005

Lauren also likes to grab us by the fingers and walk places with us. She can walk up the stairs, or across the room this way. She’ll also put her arms up and give out a yell if she wants to be picked up.

Light switches

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

Lauren can turn lights on an off now, although it’s a bit hit-and-miss.

Shouting

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

Lauren likes to shout now! She’ll shout for no good reason, and it’s very loud. Could be a way of telling us something, or that she knows how to make specific sounds by herself.

Clapping

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

Lauren learned to clap today, but not only that, she learned the english word for clap and starts clapping when we say it. So amazing to see her picking things up. We suspect she already knows key words like Mummy and Daddy (like when she’s off to bed, Nicole will say ‘let’s say goodnight to Daddy’ and she’ll drop whatever she has, gets excited and goes to be picked up) and Evan.

Teeth 9 and 10

Monday, June 20th, 2005

Lauren’s 9th and 10th teeth are coming in now. She’s keeping us awake at night, and we presume because of the teeth coming through. It’ll be nice once they’re all in.

Dada

Monday, June 20th, 2005

Lauren’s grasping more words these days, and when Nicole has said ‘Let’s go see Daddy,’ she’s said ‘Dada’. Also, when calling her name, she’ll look over and come to me.

First steps on video

Saturday, June 4th, 2005

Lauren performed again for us today, taking 5 steps on her own. We caught this on camera this time and have put the videos online, so click here to view it. We’ve also got a second shot at this site location.
