Cate's Growing Language

I'm so long over-due for a post it's not even funny...and Cate's language has exploded since my last post.  I'll try to list all of her words here, but I'm sure there are some I will forget.  Ones with a * she also signs:

  1. Mommy
  2. Daddy
  3. Sissy
  4. Dog*
  5. Stop it (typically spoken to the dog, Kennedy)
  6. Cocoa
  7. Piggy (for the Piglet blanket that is the new addition to the growing list of items she likes to carry around)
  8. Sock
  9. Shoes* 
  10. Jaket
  11. Shirt
  12. Pants

  35. Papi
  36. Aunt Anne 
  37. Sean

  39. Doug (sounds a lot like dog, but she says it when she sees pictures of Doug, so we get that she's not calling Doug a dog -- or so we hope!)
  40. Maggie
  41. CaCa (She's a bilingual genius!  In addition to this being Aunt Cathy's nickname, she's also saying "shit" - how awesome is she I ask you?)

  74. Put away (maybe one of my kids will know to put away toys...)
  75. READ
  76. Book
  77. Where's*
  78. BATH**** (It is more of a full body wiggle with crazy-enthusiastic signing -- so much so we have to spell the word if she isn't going to be on the receiving end of the B-A-T-H)
  79. Dirty*
  80. Dance*
  81. Yellow
  82. Who's that?

  89. Bunny
  90. Bird*
  91. Duck*
  92. Bock! Bock!* (some of you may call it a chicken -- she only refers to 'chicken' if she is going to consume it, but pictured in a book, it is a "Bock! Bock!")
  93. Color
  94. Paper
  95. Bug
  96. Block
  97. Mine
  98. Top (working on Toppers)

Notable names NOT included on this list would be: Grandma and Alex.  Sorry you two, we're working on it...but she has quite the stubborn streak (I have no earthly idea where she gets that), so I can't make any promises...
