plenty of anemones in the sea

24 January, 2016

This week, Pony Monkey turned 28 months.  I more or less stopped thinking of her age in months nearly a year ago, but when I’m thinking about milestones or measuring her development from one point to another, it’s useful.

The last time I gave much thought to her language acquisition, she was 17 months old. I attempted to maintain her growing vocabulary list, but truth be told, I just couldn’t keep up with her.  The latest vocabulary bomb dropped?  Treacherous.  Her pronunciation could use a little work, but given that she’s two years old, we’ll take it.

She added another new word this week.  Anemone.  And specifically, sea anemone.  Her pronunciation is spot-on here.  She learned about sea anemones during an outing we took this week, and I chose this picture as my favorite shot of the week not because it was better than the numerous other photos I took, but because when Pony Monkey saw it on my screen, she started jumping up and down exclaiming “anemone! anemone!”
