18 month words

Since spending the last 11 days at home, Emilia is picking up the English language quite well. I have to say that I am pretty damn proud of the 5 words that she learned this week....yummy (ummy), yucky (ucky), cup, bowl, and thanks, which comes out something like doss, dosh, and never know what you are going to get, but you know what it means. I guess it just took a little time away from the Spanish to really concentrate on the English. Those, she picked up, just since Monday. I am proud. So far her words are: Mama, Dada, Mommy, Daddy, MiMi, Knee, Cup, Bowl, Yummy, Yucky, Juice, Shoes, Thanks, Ball, Book, Potty, Pee-pee, Poo-poo, Bird, Squirrel, and of course, most of the animals are just woof-woofs and quack-quacks and so on.....she shrieks for cats. It's amazing how you can understand your own child, but you have no clue what other children are saying and no one can understand your child either. It's funny, oh well, just wanted to share that the English is coming right along.
