Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

The Shoe and Duck Connection

Today is the fourth anniversary of the passing of Amelia's paternal grandfather. Last year at this time she was just beginning to sit on her own for very brief periods of time and I took a sweet picture of her at the cemetery. It is amazing how much more she can do now!

Tonight as I was feeding her some yogurt as part of our bedtime routine, she was playing with her green duck (which looks more like a chicken, but we've decided not to confuse her and we let her call it a duck). She was wearing her green sandals which are really close to the same shade of green as the duck. I didn't have the tray on the high chair and after saying "duck" and pointing to it for about the tenth time, she then points to her sandals and says, "shoes". And she repeated this a few times. She has said "shoes" a couple of times, but not consistently, so this was pretty exciting in and of itself, but the way she was pointing from the duck to the shoes and naming each was like she recognized they were different items but that they were the same color. Wow!
