Holiday Update

So we've been spending time with family, and Bridget has been loving the constant hum of activity and people! She's eating everything that's offered to her, asking to use the potty, and attempting more and more spoken words. She loves her new doll that Santa brought (and the zhu zhu hamsters he brought for Emmy), and is keeping busy drawing and playing the days away.

My parents have a picture of Alina on their refrigerator at Bridget's eye level. She'll walk by the refrigerator, stop and wave to the picture, or stop and kiss the picture. Yesterday, she offered Alina her phone, "here, you" (it's for you!). She calls Alina "baby" or "nuh". We'll ask, Are you going to share your toys with Alina? or, Are you going to be a good big sister? To which she replies, "Yup".

We've recently discovered that Bridget can say "p-o-k-e-r" clearly. (She's been sitting at the table each night while the dads and cousins play). She even knows the difference between (and can say) "(poker) chips" and "cards". We're so proud :)...


  1. We are smiling for you Bridget. Next comes "m-o-n-e-y"!

  2. VERY important words in a preschooler's vocabulary, you know :)

  3. You have a lot to be proud of :-) Sounds like you had a Merry Christmas.

  4. Have a Happy New Year! You guys are oh so special!

  5. As you should be!

    And then comes s-h-o-p!


  6. saying Hello! my first visit here, came over from Renee's blog. what a precious angel Bridget is! Our 4th child Parker is 7months and I have found myself wondering about speech development too lately. He does everything a "typical" child should at this point and I keep asking myself how it will translate into talk. Thanks for sharing, this was a great post and I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your family better! Blessings! Lara
