We remembered that Mana's language seemed to improve shortly after starting preschool at 18 months old. Well now it's Alani's turn. This week she seems to really hve started talking more. She calls her sisters by name: Vai for Kawai and Mama for Mana. When she wakes up in the morning the first thing she does is call for Vai and Mama, who of course are still fast asleep. She named her binky "BeeBee". She says "Mulk" for milk", can say "more" when wants more. We are happy we can really start to understand what she wants now.
all is well except I can't wait for this horrible poison oak to heal. I got it during work, and it covered my left forearm. It's so gross, weeping all over the place and looks pretty horrible. I try to hard to keep it out of the girl's way, but especially Alani bumps it all the time.
