Summer speaks out....

On a lighter note....

I have to share something that happened a couple of weeks ago at church. Summer is somewhat like a celebrity at church these days. We have been around so long that most of the people who have been here in this area for at least 3 years know of our family saga. Every week I come to church with my cute, happy, cheerful little girl...we get adoring looks from the grandmas and ah's and oh's from many others. They have watched her go from being every color in the rainbow, face taped, oxygen in tow, tubes dangling, backpack weighing more than her... to her naked cheeked, healthy looking self she is today.

So, this "danty" little girl on the pedastool decided to show off her stuff. The Relief Society room was fairly silent...not many babies in tow that day for some reason. So, with the teacher in mid-sentence, Summer let fly with the loudest, longest string of gas she could. At first, it caught everyone off guard, then, as it continued, there were scattered giggles. When the teacher paused, Summer continued for what seemed like an eternity...though was really only about 15 seconds. Everyone smiled in my direction as I smiled a sheepish smile back and Summer made her announcement....


This is what she says anytime a gas-like noise comes from either end or she throws up, haha! A
nd, all it took to learn it was my hubby asking her if she burped once...she was obviously impressed! Oh, my daughter is so demure! I excused myself and headed for the restroom to change her. Silly, silly, innocent girl :)

Her language has been taking off recently with quite the list of words she likes to say including; burp, happy, mommy, daddy, hi, bye, baby, ball, uh oh (some of her firsts), grampa, nose, eye, toes, ow (this one she says with a grin as she gouges your eyes out or scratching you), dis (this), and most recently, woopsh, wheee, oh, whoa, no, don't, and a few more she picks up daily. It is so fun to hear her talking! We start speech therapy next week to help her catch up...she's off to a great start!
