We got DD's eyes looked at this morning. She needs patching.
She did real well at the doctors. She did not cry but for a second after the drops. Then she took the tissue wiped her eyes and handed it back to the doctor.
She later said, "Doctor Wei put da wader in my eyes. Dr. Wei is nice." This really floored me because one, I only mentioned the doctors name in passing, and two, that was all her own language. I never said anything like that, prior.
She turned 22 months a couple of days ago. That sounds so old. Where did my baby go? I have to say that it is not that odd to hear her speaking. Her intonation is poor; her pronounciation is sometimes only understood by trained ears; she tends to repeat herself over and over. She still sounds like a baby.
That being said, she speaks with articles, prepositions, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, plurals, -ing, past tense, irregular past (saw, threw), and words like 'just', 'first', and 'if', all wrapped up in complete complex 10+ word sentences.
But, like have said before, it is not the length of sentences or the vocabulary that is so striking, but the complexity of the ideas expressed.
A cute thing she just started doing is 'reading' her books. She starts at the beginning and turns each page and says a sentence or two about each picture. She was doing this in the book store last week, and everyone thought she was the cutest little thing. I was proud because she thought for a second and then correctly identified a violin. When did she learn that?
Oh, and I let her go "nakid baby" before and after bath every night for about 15 minutes. In that time she must have peed in her little potty. I found it the next day. Then, that night she pooped in her potty without me even knowing during her nakid time. She came to me limping because there was poo on her foot. I am not ready for this.
