Jessaleigh: Why did you stop the car Daddy?
Daddy: Because there is a Stop sign.
Jessaleigh: What is it was a Go sign?
Jessaleigh’s vocabulary is always growing and changing, but recently she has started correcting some of my favorite Jessaleigh-ism’s
Tiss = Kiss

Today Jessaleigh discovered / rediscovered / became infatuated with…
We spent 1/3 of our time at the grocery store today playing “meme nose?” – I get a Eskimo kiss; “Ra-ra Nose?”- Chanler gets an Eskimo Kiss. Around and around and up and down the aisles.
I figured it has been awhile since I have listed Jessaleigh’s vocabulary, so today seemed like as good a day as any… Here we go:
Mama – Mommy
Dada – Daddy
Wawa – Water
Waba – Water bottle
Oosh – Shoe
Dun – Down
Ouw – Out
Nana – Nursing
Mamama – Grandmama
Dat – That
Haut – Hot
Da – Dog
Haut Da – Hot dog

She also has signs for:
We got a good deal on some Robeez, and they were delivered tonight (go UPS, down with FedEx), and Jessaleigh proved that she is definitely all girl.
She was holding one of the shoes, and I was holding the other, and with a gleam of desire not to be denied in her eyes, she took three steps toward me and grabbed the other shoe. Up to this point the most that we have seen her take is one (being generous here) step at a time, usually followed by an abrupt seating maneuver.
Yes, that’s right, our daughter’s first steps were for shoes! This bodes ill for my checkbook 🙂

Please note: Jessaleigh thought and engineered this all on her own. She spun herself up and figured out how to pick up her feet. Unfortunately I was having camera issues so I didn’t get all of it on one video…
This is what Jessaleigh calls her daddy. And she is so excited when he beckons to her call!
