Lena's Words: 18 Months

I was reading through some old blog entries recently, and came across Lucy's 18 month update. In it, I wrote that she knew 14 words. I know that Lena is more verbal than Lucy was at that age, but when I actually started to write down all the words Lena uses, I was shocked by the number! She's 18 months old today, and I probably won't be on top of things enough to actually write her 18 month update, but I'm going to transcribe all the words I've been writing down for the past couple of weeks. Just for fun. :-) She'll repeat anything after you. These are the ones that I've heard her use in context without prompting. And I'm sure I'm forgetting some. So crazy! It's funny how she tends to be more like Justin while Lucy is more like me. But Lena has definitely been more verbal from a younger age - which she does not get from Justin. Haha. Love it. Anyway, here they are:

  1. What a great vocabulary! That's like double Orion's words at that age and quadruple Desy's! I'm curious what Cecelia will be like :D
