New things I've noticed Emma saying this week:
"Cha" (cuchara = spoon in Spanish)
"Jush" (squish, a useful word when playing with play-doh)
"Cheen" (ice cream, when making play-doh ice creams!)
"Bye bye" (accompanied by a wave!)
"Cat", "pibi" (piggy), "roo" (kangaroo)
"Chi" (chilli) - always accompanied by a flapping of hands and frowning to demonstrate an imaginary hot chilli (we don't actually give her chillies to eat!), when she's pretending to eat play-doh food.
"Chay han" (change hands, while walking down the stairs)
"Fu, fy, fu, fy" (this is her counting again!)
There are lots of times when she says something and I try and guess what she's referring to but just can't manage to work out what she means. That's a little frustrating.
One of her favourite activities has probably been playing with play-doh. She has three colours, but for some reason she always chooses the green. She loves cutting, pressing into mounds, squishing and making little tacos and bread that she pretends to eat and gives us to eat!
Unfortunately, another of her favourite activities recently is to tip her training cup upside down and shake the juice out onto her table, or the floor. Not so great. And if it's on the table, she tries to drink it from the surface. Really not great. Hope she grows out of that soon!
I was not-so-secretly proud of myself for finding another way to get Emma to happily eat spinach:
The spaghetti was just normal spaghetti, but the sauce was made with spinach and spring greens, as well as onion, garlic, cream, basil and a little milk. Emma loved it!

This week's quote is always relevant and strikes a chord with me. I wish I could be a more courageous person, as I'm really not.
