Growing Up

by Toad

It really does seem like Natalie has done a lot of growing up recently!  She is coming up on 18 months old, and is having a lot of fun.  She enjoys reading to herself in the car, standing on her head (sort of), and talking, singing, and just making noise.

Just in the last week or two she has come a long ways in trying to repeat us, instead of just saying her “toddlish” word for what we say (for example, toddlish for “shoe” is something like “c’law!”), and has also discovered singing, and her natural talent at emulating the sound a dog makes.  Joanna, this one’s for you:

If you’d like to see that in high definition, I have uploaded a copy at 720p here.  The file is encoded with the Xvid codec.  You can download that here, or just use VLC for windows.

    We’ve been on vacation and didn’t see this until several days after you posted it. Natalie’s singing, her sweet smile and her “woof” almost made the trip home bearable!
