About a week ago, Baby V started saying "no." Before that she just shook her head, so she has been able to communicate "no," but now she is saying it instead. She says it in possibly the cutest way one can imagine the word "no" being said. She walks up to forbidden objects singing, "no no no no no no no no..." She has also started to stand on the coffee table just to get a rise out of Mommy. She has also begun a new ritual which goes as follows: Say hi to new thing, make kiss gesture to new thing, say bye to new thing. New things include worms, shoes, ceramic frogs, etc. New words include Mama (actually being said on a regular basis, finally!), meow AKA beow, horse, gubby (no idea, I think she just likes saying it). Also, she likes to eat raw green peppers.
