Animal sounds and more...

Pear has been reciting her animal sounds for a few weeks now and I finally got it on video. She has been talking a lot more over the last couple of days and she said her first sentence today. At lunch I gave her some cheese, she ate it all and said "more, more, more," she then paused and said "more cheese." She also can count to three. And she will tell you how old she is as well as hold the one finger up.

Stephen and I enjoy Pear so much. We can't wait to have another one to enjoy! By the way, we only have 5 months to go!

Our Scaredy-Cat and her new toy

Pear has been needing some new toys for a while now and I finally I found a great deal on this Little Tikes slide/fort on craigslist so we picked it up a week ago. It is the perfect size and Pear has a blast on it however, once she climbs up the steps, she's stuck on it until Stephen or I can rescue her. She doesn't think that she can crawl down the stairs or go down the slide by herself. She is such a little scaredy-cat! I have helped her go down so many times now. I would think she'd get the hang of it but if I leave her in her room, I eventually hear her little voice saying "help, help, help," which sounds more like "hep, hep, hep." Nonetheless it was well worth the $30 I paid for it as it has already provided hours of entertainment and I'm sure it will provide even more once she figures out that going down the slide doesn't hurt too bad.

We are seeing more and more personality come out of Pear. This picture demonstrates the look you would see if she disapproves of something you said or if you are simply a strange person staring at her, such as Stephen's cousin Philip the other day.
