A short list of her current vocab includes: more, all-done, milk, juice, thirsty, hungry, please, thank you, car, dog, Dad, cracker, cheese, and her new favorite - cookie.
Reid and I stopped by the grocery store a few days ago to grab something we needed for dinner. As soon as we got inside, Genna said and signed, "cookie." Reid looked at me, and I admited that I often (ok, almost always!) get her a free cookie to nibble on while I am comparing prices and getting awesome deals. (No, that's not bragging. It's true!)
Anyway, we were in a hurry, so we grabbed what we needed and headed for the check-out. Since it was just after 5 pm, the store was very busy, and there were a few people in front of us. Genna was getting antsy, so Reid decided to just let her walk around, and he would follow her. I waited in line, quickly reading in a magazine as much of the story about Jon and Kate as I could before it was my turn. I finished checking out, and they still weren't back. As I headed for the door, I saw Reid carrying Genna through the produce department, holding something....
Apparently, as soon as Reid set Genna down, she walked directly to the bakery where the free cookies are. Smart girl, right? Or maybe we go to the store too much? In my defense, the store is right around the corner, so we often go more than once a week (I buy what will fit into the stroller bottom).
These pictures are not of the store cookie - she ate that before we could get home to our camera, so this is a cookie I made. That's right. I let my daughter eat two cookies in one day.
This is one of the signs that says as well as signs (others are Dad, shoes, car, juice and cracker), so I was hoping I could catch it on video. No such luck. As soon as I pressed "record," she gave me this clueless look like, "What are you talking about, Mom? I don't know anything about any 'cookie'."
