FIrst the walking, then the talking...
Sunday, November 26, 2006 (coincidentally the day of her baptism), Mary started really walking, going the whole distance of the room at a steady pace without stumbling!!
And she has maintained her 'sea legs' ever since. Oh boy. With that, though she will still stay in the stroller during shopping excursions, she has tasted freedom, so being content in the stroller may be short lived.
Well, it was a nice run while it lasted.
She is also imitating words and phrases sometimes. Example, Bruce said here's your panda bear and she repeated pana beah , or 3 syllables that sounded like it with same intonation.
Also, good morning sleepy girl produced " seepy guh, or some facsimile... I had noticed this a couple of times before, when it sounded like she said an exact word.
And "beauh" is her word for her pink bear.
Lots of babbling of phrases, and yesterday, she said Hi to a sales rep in the Ulta cosmetics store, in response to the girl saying Hi to her. Mary said it twice, and the whole incident is a first.
