The sounds:
what does a ____ say:
bird: tweet tweet
whale: oooo aaaaa
horse: neigh
doggy: woof woof
monkey: ooo ooo ooo
snake: sssssssss
tiger: arrrrr
duck: quack quack
cow: moo
santa: ho ho ho
cat: meow

Able to identify and match colors: pink, green, blue, yellow, purple

Loves The Wheels on the Bus... favorite motions: the babies on the bus say waa, waa, waa; the mommies on the bus say shhh, shhhh, shhhh; the babies on the bus play peek a boo, peek a boo, peek a boo; the wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish

I'm sure I'm forgetting something... It's so incredible to see the difference in just 3 short months. Watching her take in the world around her and seeing her learn is one of the most amazing things of being a mom!

As usual, you've got it way more together than I have! I have no idea when Big Sis could say those things... and I still doubt she knows what a whale says (I don't think I even did!) ;)
Ahhh, baby books... my poor kiddos. We'll have lots of (unorganized) pics and the major milestones... they'll still love me, right? ;)

Who knows if I'll ever use this info, but it will be nice to see how #2 progresses.

Well, she knows the whale because of Finding Nemo... and my mom... lover of all things under water!!

Your kids will still love you! I think I've looked at my baby book 5times my whole life!!

YaYa said...

Out of all those words, you'd think the kid could/would say "YaYa"...but, nooooo.....all I get is "The Look", a point at my chest when she's wanting something from me, and then that adorable smile!

Love that she says trash! - one of my nieces throws every little speck of "yucky" away as well! And with twins who are almost 3 years old and a 6 month old, there's lots of "yuckies" laying around that need to go in the trash! Or at least she thinks so! And when saying that a "yucky" needs to go in the trash, the face that accompanies it is priceless! Kids are so hilarious!!!
