Awww, I love her extensive vocabulary already! You have much to be proud of
She sounds like such a sweetheart.

Re: Proud daddy has to brag a little about his FID

Awesome Perjo! I can not even think how many words/phrases Smokey said in her 28 years. It seemed like she was picking up something new every day to the point I didn't even TRY and teach her anything anymore.

Keep on impressing your dad Perjo!

Re: Proud daddy has to brag a little about his FID

It's a good idea to write down everything he says.
I keep a running notebook on my iPad for everything new my Bella comes out with.
When she puts together a new combination of words she has already said we always get a laugh out of it.
Many of her sayings have not been heard in a long time. Don't know if they are forgotten or they will come back in time.

Wes I think Parrots are like elephants,they never forget!
My mom has been gone twelve years now. Mrs. Callan my moms best friend and next door neighbor has been gone even longer.
When Mrs Callan came over to visit,she'd open the back door and yell out " Ellen!!...ELLEN!!" and Amy picked it up and would say it from time to time..
Well this past Saturday morning while I'm here on the computer,what do I hear from the living room??? Ellen!!!...ELLEN!!!!!

Twelve years later Amy still remembers mom.

Re: Proud daddy has to brag a little about his FID

They are amazing! Debbie is learning her address....having a tough time keeping her numbers in order and saying (Robert Avenue)....but she’s only 2...so far she has picked up many many words by herself and from the TV....and thankfully...no cursing!

Re: Proud daddy has to brag a little about his FID

They are amazing, and never cease to just blow me away with their ability to not only "say" the words, but to actually understand them! That's what is really impressive, their ability to logically think about things and understand them. My brother, Jagger, who is now 32 and lives with my mom and step-father, knows the sound of my car when I pull in their driveway! As soon as he hears my car pull in the driveway he starts yelling "El's here! El's here!" He always makes my mom cry whenever he does this, she was a mess at Thanksgiving dinner, lol, because he still loves me so much even though I haven't lived with him since I was 23, so 16 years ago. He flies right over to me as soon as I walk in their door and gives me a high-five every single time...
