Since E's doctor appointment yesterday I've been thinking about all the words she knows. The doctor asked if she knew between 15 and 20 words, and we said she knew many more. So, here are the words she has at 18 months, I'm sure I've missed some: mama, dada, Ama, Ada, up, down, more, please, milk, cheese, bean, pea, yogurt, water, hippo, roar, diaper, Ernie, Elmo, potty, toot, no, all done, done, mommy, ball, walk, out, baby, nite nite, owie, shoe, sock, toes, bye bye, hi, thank you, her name, her friend A's name, swim, pool, boat, tweet, noodle, wow, airplane, whee, uh oh, boom, bump, ride, happy, truck, Big Bird, cookie, mum mum, snack, vroom, hop, boy, and animal.
We had another milestone tonight, our first public tantrum. We were walking and E wanted to cross the street to play. We said no, and she threw herself on the ground and cried. We cleared it up pretty quickly, but near a driveway to our condo wasn't the best place for a tantrum.
