All kinds of Erin

She's doing so much lately that it's hard for me to keep up with what I've blogged and what I haven't. Her vocabulary is exploding, and she's having so much fun repeating our words now (which I had the hardest time getting her to do before). Lately she's started saying "uh-oh" (which is just so cute!) and "woof." She's gotten really good at identifying animals too. The other day a dog was barking outside and she heard it, pointed to the window and said "DOGGY!" Matt and I couldn't figure out what she was pointing at at first, until we realized she was talking about the barking.

She also has tooth number six. No, it's not the second top tooth on the left, or either of the second bottom teeth. It's an upper molar on the right. So apparently all her fussiness has been because of that, and I haven't been giving her pain meds because I didn't think it was a tooth! ACK!

A couple nights ago Matt turned on his computer Nintendo emulator and started playing Mario 64. Erin was interested, so he put her on his lap and gave her the controller. I've been trying to upload this video to photobucket, and it hasn't worked, so we'll see what blogspot does with it...

Recently we bought Erin a new pair of pjs. As you can see, they're blue and green with dinosaurs.I had picked out a pair that were purple with butterflies or something on them, but she grabbed them out of my hands and threw them (lol, they landed in the cart) and reached for the shelf. Matt grabbed the ones closest to her hand and she grabbed them from him and held on to them. He then took both pairs, and held them out to her. When we finally convinced her she could only have one, she picked the dinos. LOL! I think I'm going to have a tomboy on my hands.

And finally, she's started singing! She usually does it when she's bored or we're in the car, but it's so fun to listen to her. There have been times when she starts singing to the radio that she actually gets a few notes right. Aunt Kim should be proud. =├×

And a not-Erin bit. I am 24 weeks pregnant today. Why is this a big deal? Well, it's the point of "viability." At this point in pregnant, the baby has a chance of surviving should he be born. While I would definitely rather stay pregnant for a while longer, it's a comfort to know. I need small milestones like that.

Yay for viability! But it's possible for a baby to live at 22 weeks also; a baby born at 21 weeks 6 days lived. The technological advances for saving babies is getting better all the time.

That's so cute about Erin and the PJ's. Braden's the opposite. He loves pink and when we bought his fishing pole, he chose the Disney princesses one. We vetoed that and he chose Transformers, so it's all good. Not to mention he loves, and I mean loves, guns and sports. A girl being a tom boy is fine, but a boy being girly is just kinda weird.

I sooo want to see her more. That's so cute!She's going to be talking before you know it. Nyssa is so lucky.

Man I'm so jealous about the talking thing. I know it was awesome when Marcus was walking and climbing and all of that but but doesn't say anything. Oh well, I'm sure he'll get there eventually and then he won't shut up. Try can get a video of her singing!
