Happy 20 Months!

Doesn't she look like such a big kid, here?

I say this all the time but it's true:  Eggy's growing up so fast.  I had a reality check when I realized that pretty soon I won't be able to shop in the "newborn" or "baby" section anymore.  Which is too bad because I think the baby stuff is usually cuter.
Speaking of clothes, Eggy still insists on trying to put her clothes on her own.  She's getting better too.  Sometimes, she can get her socks on.  And just this morning, Eggy almost put her pants on by herself.   Sometimes, she even picks out what she wants to wear.
She seems to like her new red coat, especially the pockets.

Every time Eggy goes to sleep, she always has to take one of her friends with her.  She doesn't have any particular strong attachment to a specific doll; it varies from nap to nap, day to day.  Then other times, the weirdo wants to sleep with a teacup, a book, a plastic block, and other odd items.  One time, she wouldn't let go of her dad's driver's license.

I can hardly keep up with all the new words that Eggy is learning.  She is babbling all the time.  When she was younger, she was pretty quiet, she didn't "talk" a lot.  I guess she's making up for lost time.  Also, most of the words she's been saying have just been monosyllables or the same vowel sounds, like haji is ah-ja.  She can't say the "ee" part.  But the past few days, she's been saying, "akamo" over and over.  I have no idea what it means but it's like the longest "word" that Eggy's said so far.  Maybe it doesn't mean anything, maybe she just likes saying it.  Anyway, words that are now part of Eggy's vocab:
  • down
  • up
  • GooGoo (her aunt)
  • Ma-ma (her paternal grandmother)
  • hat
  • kam (Korean for persimmon, which happens to be her favorite fruit of the moment)
  • gloves
  • milk
  • Pororo
  • more
  • bike
She's also copying us a lot more.  The other night, the hubby was watching the Laker game on TV and he was getting all mad and yelling at the TV, like "Come on!" and "Dude!" and "Man!"  And Eggy would try to repeat after him.  hahaha.  I guess we're really going to have to watch what we say around her.  Actually, I think she's already started saying dumb dumb.  I forgot why I first said it, probably calling the dog a dumb dumb or something and she laughed.  So every time I would say it, she'd laugh.  Well, now I think she's actually saying it herself.  Oops.  It sounds like "demo" so maybe she's saying Dumbo.  I don't think she understands what it means though.  Either way, I better stop saying it.  

Eggy still loves music and dancing.  She's always asking someone to sing her a song.  The ones she's always requesting are "The Wheels On the Bus" and this apple song she heard at story time which is to the tune of "The More We Get Together."  

She knows how to close doors but she hasn't learned how to open them yet.  

The other night, we found out that Eggy can jump now.  She actually gets off the ground.  Gravity, Eggy has conquered you.  At least, for half a second.
