Oh let’s see. Jayla has also become my little echo over the past few months. She repeats everything that I say, and knows the exact situations that are appropriate to spout off my sayings. She says things like ‘be right back’, ‘one sec’, and ‘I’m gonna go do this and this and this, ok?’ She also has become JJ’s second mother. Whatever I say to him, she usually says it again right after I say it….like when we were on a walk the other day and JJ was riding his bike I yelled “JJ, stay by the curb!” Sure enough, about 1 second later I heard my little echo down in the stroller, sporting her best motherly voice and hollering the instructions to JJ again. When we are getting ready to go somewhere she’ll say “C’mon JJ, let’s go get in the car!” It’s so funny to hear such a motherly sounding tone coming from such a little person. Somehow, Jayla has also become little Miss Manners. It’s strange because JJ still does not consistently say please and thank you, but Jayla says ‘thanks’ for everything. When you get her food or a drink - right when you hand it to her she’ll say ‘oh, thanks’. Pretty much anything you help her with or do for her you will get a ‘thanks’. She also says ‘sorry’ a lot, and ‘watch this!’, ‘Don’t!’, ‘Stop it!’ and ‘I go first!’. Typical 2-year old vocab I am sure!
I’ve also noticed Jayla making lots of faces in the mirror lately!
