Our neighbor describes E as being in the monkey stage, she has lots of words and signs, but instead prefers to point and grunt to get her point across. There has been lots of pointing and grunting at our house lately. There has also been lots of climbing up onto things lately, which E loves, but worries mom and dad.
E was all about Ama all day, in the morning, she heard the coffee pot beep that it was done and immediately said "Ama" she spent the rest of the day asking for her.
In the morning, E and I went to the Splash Pad with her friend L and his parents. Neither kid really liked the splash park, L got splashed in the face right away and was scared the whole time, and E doesn't like to get her face or head wet. She spent the time handing me a cup to fill and then dumping it out. But it was worth checking out the Splash Pad, and I'm sure we'll go back.
E also got to play with her friend A today, A's mom had made a super bubble mix, and sidewalk paint. The girls also had a huge bucket of water and a bunch of cups to play with, between the the two of them, they managed to empty the whole thing. E also learned to play with mud, and tasted the bubble mixture. She didn't like the taste of dish soap at all.
After that, E got to take part in her second Skype conversation, she talked to her Auntie in England, E loved seeing someone on the computer and loved seeing herself on the screen.
