Learning To Talk

I thought you might like to hear Gwyneth babble a bit...she's been doing this, adding strong consonants to her vowels, for a few weeks now...of course, she's not actually saying anything on purpose, but she's getting close! You'll also see her standing on her own (not standing up on her own), but she's been doing that for months...

Oh that is so sweet! What a great way to start my day, watching G "talk". Love you!

Kim M said...

Thanks Nate - how sweet to see these new steps of development! I'm sure you and Tricia cherish each day and each new thing she learns! To God be the glory!
She is one precious sweetheart!

Michelle Jamie said...

loved it. I loved how when she got louder she closed her eyes. thanks for sharing

Kristin said...

Love that sound!

Jaime said...

Wow. She has just sprung to life. I'm guessing she is more excited to look out the door post surgery. Her story gets better and better every day.

Love you little Gwyneth Rose. Can't wait to see more of your amazing progress and learning unfold. :o)

Carey said...

marcia said...

She's quite a little talker! Seems to have inherited the "gift of gab" from someone! :)
And I LOVE the little hair-thing on top of her head. Thanks for sharing! You must have been up to watch the sunrise this morning, posting this early!

Jen said...

She is SO cute! She makes the most adorable facial expressions : ). She really sounds like she's doing SO well!!

My 11.5 month old was totally engrossed with the computer, listening to and watching Gwyneth babbling. LOL.

She is a adorable! She needs to come over and teach my 2 3/4 year old how to make those sounds! He's in speech therapy trying to learn how to say his b's and p's (due to cleft lip and palate)! Thanks for sharing!

Lindsey said...

so adorable! My little guy started talking back to her while we were watching it. Rocco says "ah blah blah blah blah" to his pal down in NC. LOL!

Laurie in Ca. said...

This is so sweet and this girl is going to have a lot to say when she gets her words. How fun to see her grow up here.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Pati and Family said...

A child learning to talk, just babbling away is one of the sweetest sounds I have ever heard, I just love it. Gwyneth Rose is going to be talking before you know it.
Gwyneth is adorable and her milestones are wonderful.
I see Gwyneth is ready for St. Patricks Day, all dressed in green & a pretty green hair bow. =) =)
I am going to be honest here and tell you that Gwyneth Rose in this new video clip has lifted my spirts this morning.
*** Tricia & Nathan Thank You for sharing all that you do, they way that you do.*** Thank You Gwyneth Rose for being you.***

I love hearing her babble. So much fun. If Miss Gwyneth gets any cuter it will be against the law. She is adorable. I love her hair.
Also, good catch!!
Have a Great Day!

Amy Lynn said...

Nate, she is ADORABLE. Love the bow in her hair!

Tamara said...

totally random but just saw this book and thought of you guys...its called "Sixty-Five Roses" and it is a sister's memoir.

G is absolutely adorable and I love reading/seeing her as well as watching your family live in my fave place EVER!

Amber said...

This could possibly be...my favorite post! What a big girl :0)

Megan and Company said...

Couldn't help but notice she's wearing a big, poofy bow...

Anonymous said...

Hey Nathan, before you know it, there will be a mama & dada in there! Hope you catch that on video. Judith

Kristi Bowers said...

wherever HE leads we'll go said...

Good job Gwyneth! She is getting to be such a big girl!

Blessings From Above said...

What an adorable video! Gwyneth is doing amazing.

Love the outfit and the hair-do. She is one stylish baby!

laura said...

Very sweet. It is funny how they seem to say one sound. Ba Ba Ba Ba

My daughter said wag wag for everything until she had words we knew.

I love how they get louder too

Mary said...

Love all of the new pictures and video. Too sweet.

Molly C said...

She is actually too cute for words!

gabrielle said...

Oh my gosh she is so cute!!

Leah, Chad & Sam said...

That's so cute! My son was born on April 24, 2008, so he is exactly Gwyneth's adjusted age. He loves standing by the door and makes the exact same sounds. It's awesome to see her developing so well!

Moms said...

Maisy just heard Gwyneth and came tearing around the corner very exciitedly like she was looking for a friend. She smiled when she saw Gwyneth on the screen and said "hi" to her!

Katy said...

Too Stinkin' Cute! I so miss those days! Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Cute shirt too.

Nicole said...

How cute! She sounds like my little one with her "banana language." Love her hair - so adorable! It looks more blonde than it does strawberry blonde in that video. Thanks for sharing and making me smile! Oh, by the way, her eyes look sooo wonderful!!! Yay for her surgery! Take care!

mommyof2sons said...

I loved it! What a cutie!! God's little miracle!

Emma and Mommy said...

She is so cute! I love her shirt and her little "top knot" hair. Top Knot, hmm that is kind of dated but that is what we call the q-p doll look at our house. :-)

My 4 year old Ella came and held a conversation with her, apparently she was looking out that door for a baby. That is what Ella said. She said "Oh she is looking for another baby to play with, hear her say "ba ba ba ba baby" :-)

Beebe said...

VERY ADORABLE :-)

Paul and Christy said...

That was beautiful. I love it when they do that.

Julie said...

Oh I love it!

T J said...

Baby babbles are the bomb. Good time to be working on signs with her!

j2burk said...

She is TOO cute!

MOBACH'S said...

she is so cute!! i love it! she sure has a lot to say eh!! just wait till she's a teenager!

J said...

That is AWESOME! I majorly stressed when my 27 weeker took forever to talk (along with everything else he took forever to do). I wish I hadn't worried so much as everything turned out just fine. I noticed when he was especially mobile, the language almost stopped. I think it's easy for others to forget how much of a miracle each of her accomplishments are. What a gift she is! (Her eyelashes are amazing too) :)

camoy said...

I have been following your blog for a while now and I just wanted to say, your daughter is just the cutest and I am so happy that your family is on its path of wonderful adventures to come :) I have another reason for writing - I recently moved to NC (well almost 5 years now) however my husbands job takes him to Kitty Hawk often - I'm craving seafood can you tell me the best place he can order and bring home from? My thoughts and prayers are always with your family!

Jenna said...

SHe certainly has a lot to say!:) She has come so far in the last year,whata wonderful sound

What do you mean that she's not saying anything on purpose? That makes all the sense in the world to me!!!! Just kidding... what a super duper cutie!

Aspiemom said...

Tricia Moran said...

Wow, the progress is just amazing. Go Gywneth! It won't be long before she'll be telling you what to do! :)

Gosh she is coming on so quickly it's amazing!
I know it's a bit mean but I love how scared she looks when she falls, baby emotions are the best! The start of what will undoubtedly be an amazing personality!

brunettekoala said...

Hee hee. Think she's gonna be a singer...!

I thought the green was Gwyneth getting into the St Paddy's Day spirit early, until you pointed out the M&M on her t-shirt!

amanda said...

Way to go Gwenyth!

stephanie garcia said...

Too cute for words! And nice catch, Daddy! :)

The Beaver Bunch said...

So precious. And I LOVE her hair. The "Pebbles" look is always my favorite.

Anonymous said...

I love it!! That cute little head pony is adorable!

Me and my Gurl said...

OK Nate, I have alot of experience in the "babeling" talk. (I won't elaborate) Sounds to me like she's telling you momma takes the baby outside. She definetly knows momma and baby. She is adorable and WOW..... Standing that is awesome. For her beginning she seems to be handling her skills pretty well. My opinion is that has alot to do with mom and dad working with her. Maybe?

Adorable hair, babels, cute little girl all around. As if you didn't already know this.

Look forward to seeing more of her.

Tell Tricia I pray all goes well in Durham.

Autumn Days said...

absolutely precious! She has a lot more hair than my little girl who is older...can't wait until I can do the top of the hair ponytail!

Candace said...

To cute for words!

Lesley said...

I know you must continually be amazed at God's handiwork in Gwyneth. From that tiny, tiny baby just over a year ago to this sweet little toddler....It's amazing! Love to hear babies babble! ;-)
Blessings,
Lesley
