Celebrating Ib!

Turning one was a major affair for Ibbie. Due to travels and work schedules, she was celebrated three times with different parts of our family.

First up: Pop Pop Tim. My dad arrived at our house early in the morning. We made a day of it going to the zoo and out to lunch before heading back home for a small dessert.

Next up: Scottie and Bigs. Mom and Rodney came up for a little dinner celebration. It was a pizza party!
Finally: Ib's birthday party. Peter's folks came up from Georgia and many relatives drove in from Pennsylvania, Lower Delaware, and Maryland. There wasn't a theme but Ibbie was celebrated all day!

Near Synonyms

Oh, language development, it just blows me away! Cole's vocabulary has exploded. She understands that some words have similar meanings. In an effort toward creatively [I think!], she's been substituting words and nearly always hits the marks. Sometimes she gets close, close enough for us to understand but far enough off base to make us laugh.

Recently, heard:

Meaning laughing | "What you funny about?"
Meaning eat | "Me like him. I lick him up."
