We had the Geek Meet today. A picnic at the helicopter playground in North Adelaide with assorted Geeks On Call staff and families. We are a growing bunch now and I got to meet some new faces, and there were more kids! Ella was really happy to see some kids close in age to her.
The kids played for about 5 hours straight, the adults ate for that long!
I didn't catch the big girls much - they kept running away - , but I have dozens of Lucy photos that I will put up in a tick.
Lucy is about 36 hours away from cutting her first tooth, I reckon. She is going against the norm and cutting out of sequence (cross cutting). Normally a child would cut bottom front two and then top front two, but she is cutting her top left second incisor instead. She is going to llok quite funny when it comes though - a bit like a half breed vampire or something.
She also has started vocalising A LOT. She now has very defined speech sounds for Charlotte, Ella, baby, daddy, cat and mama. Hard to explain, but they aren't really words. When she says the girls' names though, they turn around, they know she is talking to them so it is very close to words IMO.
Tonight at dinner, I said to Ella 'where has Charlotte gone?' and Ella said she was in the toilet. Well, when Charlotte came back from the toilet, Lucy was all "Charlotte Charlotte" excitedly (well, her version of, but you know what I mean!)
