Madeline has gotten alot more vocal the past few weeks. She tries to say quite a few things that make no sense and will try to mimic what you say. There are only a handful of words that she'll use in the correct context without being prompted: Mama, Dada, Up, Down, Yes, Hi, etc. She said her first sentence last week. Jon was walking up to the car and she said "Hi Dada" and waved. I was so proud. :) We say "hi" and "bye" to lots of things, especially Fergie. When we leave we say "bye Fergie" and when we get home we'll say "hi Fergie". Usually she'll just wave and not say anything.
We were confused when she started saying "Hi Doe Doe." It was clearly different than Dada. When she started following Fergie around and saying "Hi Doe Doe" we realized that "Doe Doe" must mean "Fergie" in Maddie language. Doe Doe = Dog??? Who knows. She's been saying it quite a bit lately and it's pretty funny. We tried to get a good video, but as soon as she knows the spotlight is on the performance usually comes to an end. I'll take what I can get. :)
