Now that Jane talks a little, she is starting to say some pretty funny things. The other day we were walking up the stairs and we have a huge vent right by the stairs. She stopped at the vent and wouldn't continue up the stairs. Then she began saying "bunny, bunny, bunny" over and over again, kind of hitting on the vent. She did this a few times that day...we think she must have had a dream about a bunny in the vent or something. I told her there might be dust bunnies in there!

Last night I asked Jane if she wanted to say her prayer and she folded her arms and started to mumble a little prayer and then got bashful and turned away to finish. It was so cute. So then this morning we were having family prayers and Jane knelt down and without being asked, started to say it by herself! "Heawee Fawah, (something something) day..." Then she got bashful and hid in my lap. When she does things like this it makes me feel so much better about mommydom, like I must be doing something right.

Jane tends to get restless at church, wanting "bubbles" that lure her to nursery. She'll say "bubbles" over and over again and I have to convince her that it's not time yet...etc. Well, yesterday was a rough day for the ward in regards to reverence, and Jane did not help much either. As the last speaker was closing, I asked Jane if she wanted to sing with me and, just as the speaker said "amen", Jane decided to yell "Yahoo!" very loudly which then caused everyone behind us to giggle uncontrollably. As I said, it was a rough meeting anyway, and I think Jane shouted what everyone was thinking (although it really was unrelated), "Yahoo! It's almost over!". Many people told me afterward how she had voiced their thoughts. At least she didn't know she was doing that. Cute baby. (No offense to the last speaker ;)
Other things Jane says:
  • "foofies"= excuse me, said appropriately after expelling air
  • "sowie"= sorry, said after getting an owie, probably because it's what we say when we accidentally bump her
  • "pees" = please
  • "mak" = milk
  • "fwing" = swing
  • "mah"= more
  • "woovie"= movie
  • "hewah"= Heather
  • "sock"= Scott
I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them now...
Progress update: Jane is FINALLY drinking milk out of a sippy cup. That was a hard one to break. She bit through her last transition cup with a soft top, so we told her it was time to drink out of a sippy cup and she just said okay! Huh, that was easy?! You just never know...

Those are such good pictures of Jane! I love when they start to talk--you finally get a glimpse of what they are thinking. I'm sure you'll get lots of great blog material in the next few months.

I miss her foofies. I guess my gmail account will let me leave a comment as though I'm signed in. My account on here is actually through yahoo. Let's see what happens. Haircut tomorrow....I don't know what to do!!! Wish I could have been there for the YAHOO!!
