Ruby Red Slippers & A New Word for Today: "Yak!"





Yesterday Kate dug in her bedroom closet and found the Ruby Red Slippers that Nicki bought for her about a year ago.

As you can tell from the second photo, she's still 8-12 months from really being able to fit into them, but that didn't stop Kate from wanting to wear them as she waltzed around the studio.

The third photo shows a shaggy Kate doing her "Cousin Itt" imitation (The Addams Family) in the back of the car after she and Nicki got back from a playdate at Terry's. After her dinner and bath, and during bedtime reading she learned the word Yak and we couldn't stop her from saying it (along with giggles and smile) as we plopped her into bed.

We half expect that we'll hear her saying it as she wakes up in the middle of the night for one of her "parties" (two nights ago she woke up and we heard the word "car" being chanted a lot).

Around 18 months is the "language dump" milestone, IIRC. The world is opening up and she's ready to soak it up like a sponge.
