She can...

Laylin has really started showing more signs of being a true toddler. Recently, she has started signing more than just, more. All the work and videos have started to pay off because she is communicating with us through sign language!

She can now sign:

  • More
  • Eat
  • All done
  • Milk
  • Drink
  • Dog
  • Sleep
  • Diaper

Isla has gotten into signing again too. Signing is helping her communicate with us and reducing some frustrations, but I've also noticed that it is encouraging her to talk to us. She's starting to say more words now too. 

She can say:
  • Bye bye
  • All done
  • Mama
  • Dada
  • Isla
  • Bella
  • Night-night
She's also taken a new interest in reading...and it's literally all she wants to do during playtime!
She brings me a book, sits down on my lap and listens to the whole story without moving... except to point at the pictures. Once the book is done, if I put it down, she will pick it up and hand it to me again. It's so cute how she has favorite books that she wants to read over and over again. Her favorite little story is about making toast with jelly. For some reason she LOVES this one. She will want to read it 10 times before she moves on to the next book. 

She's growing and changing everyday and becoming the sweetest little girl. Can't wait to see what she can do next.

Laylin Milestones

Wow, Laylin has hit a lot of milestones since my last post and these milestones have been keeping me busy!

  • For starters, she turned ONE!
  • She hit her biggest milestone - WALKING! She is now up to 15 steps. She's getting more and more confident every day. She took her first steps on September 21st! 
  • Now, she's not only a walker, but also a dancer! She loves banging her head to the beat of...well, anything. The TV tunes, music, sounds from a toy... it really doesn't matter. This girl just loves to dance! 
  • She's still holding strong at just 4 teeth, but she's a great eater. 
  • Still weighing in at a whooping 17lbs, but healthy. 
  • Her personality has really started to shine recently. She's giggly, goofy, playful and feisty! 

We love our little Lay-LION!
