Eating by herself

Friday, October 28th, 2005

Lauren’s getting to be a pro at feeding herself. She can pick up things with the spoon or fork, and easily gets it into her mouth! She hasn’t mastered chopsticks yet though.

Lauren loves rice

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

The family was over at Yoshi’s place today for lunch, and she has a rice cooker. Lauren went missing for a short time and when they went to find her, they found her with the rice paddle in hand, helping herself to the left-over rice from the rice cooker.

Lauren loves reading now. She’ll pick up stories and she’ll put them back on demand too. She still loves seeing cats and dogs and also reading books about animals. She’ll also spot some animals on groceries or other products and will point them out to us.

She loves to point at buses and big trucks going by. She says ‘ba’ for bus, which is also used for balloon.

Lauren’s getting better with words these days. Here are some of the things she can say:

‘da’ – Duck
‘jaf’ – Giraffe
‘mama’ – Mummy
‘dada’ – Daddy
‘ka’ – cat
‘bye-bye’ – bye-bye
‘ta’ – thanks

She pretty well understands everything we ask her too.

New teeth

Wednesday, October 19th, 2005

Lauren’s getting the last of her canine teeth now. The top ones came in a few weeks ago, and she’ll been teething badly recently and we can see marks where her bottom canines should be. That will mean she’ll have all her teeth, except her molars which come in a bit later!
