Ashlin is such a goof. She’s becoming quite a little person, so expressive with so many new words. Most of them are still very difficult to understand, but her prononciation is getting better. With all the new words, she’s using so many new expressions. If you’re lucky, you can understand them:
I do it! Massshamuu beez (Marshmallow, please) Stop it! No want it. I no want it. On my butt (for cream, Cookie Monster) Downstairs. Banana. Socks! I love you.
Her sister, on the other hand, seems to be losing some of her words. No, that’s not it, Teagan has so many words. It’s that she’s losing some of her ability to put those hundreds of words together in a comprehensible sentence. Maybe it’s because she’s making more and more complex sentences, trying to express more complex thoughts. There’s always at least five um’s between each mini-thought. She repeats two words over and over, drops in another three um’s for good measure before she finishes the thought. If you ask her to repeat herself, she can almost always do the sentence without the verbal hiccups.
Still, she’s a funny thing.
