20 Month Joci Update

Time for a Joci update.

She is darling. But that's not news. She is saying so many things that my vocab page at the top of the blog is so outdated it's pathetic.

Joci loves to identify colors. Half of what she chatters on about is pointing out what's yellow, blue, and purple. She's started to hate brushing her teeth - it's a battle.

Right before Christmas, Justin took Joci out in the snow for the first time. She adored it and played in it for 20 minutes. She would throw snow up in the air (but she never ate it) and she would flop on her face.

I've learned that that I must say okay too much because Joci is now adds it to the end of almost everything she says. Like this morning when I got her out of her crib, I asked her if she wanted to get out and she said, "Out. Okay." I will ask her if she wants a piece of string cheese and she'll say "Cheese. Okay." It's cute.

She started saying people's names, though I'm not sure she makes the connection with the person.

During December, she definitely got to the point where she would identify and say Santa. However, starting Christmas Day she started calling certain Santa representations Grandpa. We don't know which grandpa she thinks it is - one of her grandpas has snowy white hair and the other one has a bushy mustache. Kind of funny.

She got a play bowling set for Christmas. I will set up the pins for her and help her get her fingers just right in the ball. Then she crouches down and gives several false starts and then knocks the pins over either by just kicking them while holding the ball or by tapping each pin with the ball. She has yet to learn that you are supposed to "throw" the ball at them - and let go! She calls out each color of the pin before she knocks it down. I have a video of this I need to upload and post.

Things she says now:
  • Wash
  • Cheese
  • Christmas
  • Alright
  • Paige
  • Afton
  • Beautiful
  • Downstairs
  • Garbage
  • Pink (finally! You think she would've got this one before black and gray)
  • Story
  • School
  • Daycare
  • And more that I can't even remember!

P.S. Stay tuned for a really fun guest post from Meagan from Life Simplified.
