Yesterday, Ruthi was making some silly faces. She was trying to make a scary face, but they really just all ended up cute. So she added sound to get the scary face to work. (It was still just cute though!)
That led her to talking about dinosaurs. She let out this roar and said she was making her dinosaurus-rex face! We got a good chuckle out of that.
Then she mentioned another breed - the Sci-ter-i-tops. How cute is that?
Then CJ asked her to say "Velociraptor". It came out so-lop-i-tap-tor.
I think I like her dinosaur breeds!
Lately, she's been pronouncing words correctly that she wasn't before. It kind of makes me sad, because it just means she is growing much too quickly. But at the same time, it's pretty cute.
She will say a word correctly and catch herself. Then she says (excitedly), "MOM! I just said _________!" I think it's pretty neat that she realizes that she has just said a word differently than she was saying it.
One of the biggest things is words that begin with the letter s, followed by a consonant. She would always leave the s off and start with the next letter. Here are a few words she has begun to say correctly lately:
Kool work became school work
Fire Tation became Fire Station (and gas station too)
Tairs became Stairs
Tick became Stick
Teps became Steps
And a few other words she has changed:
Kank you became thank you.
bacuse me became excuse me.
Fwidge-u-fwate-u has become fwidge-u-rate-u. Not a BIG difference, but closer to the real thing (refrigerator).
And this one makes me the most sad, because it's always been one of my favorites!
Yes, she is growing up WAY too quickly for me!!!
And on a compltely different subject - I've begun blogging on my craft blog again. It had been almost a year since my last post there - sheesh! You can check it out by clicking the link over in my sidebar.
