Yes, I know. My kid is a linguistic genius and her verbal skills are blowing you away. Her verbal skills aren't the strongest for her age, but in her defense she has devoted most her energy to growing bigger than many 2 year olds. Her vocabulary mostly centers on screaming "HEY!" when Peanut barks and saying "Hi!" and "Bye!" which sound suspiciously alike.
I'm actually not worried that she's currently "behind" on verbal development, mostly because we do a lot of nonverbal communication. Also, I know she can say words like "book" and "dog", but if you ask her to say it, you'll just get a dirty look. She's really my kid, so I know to just let her do it on her own time and the more I pester her, the longer it will take. :) Also, I think I might have higher standards than normal for counting "words". If you spend enough time with a baby, you just start to hear things (did she just say "Shit"?!?) but I don't count it as a new word unless it's really clear and she says it more than once.
This weekend will my first run on the trails since my 50K in July. I can't believe it's been this long, especially considering how much I enjoy running (and falling) on trails. We have a good sized group meeting up and I already picked up necessary supplies like Coke and Oreos! The best part is that it will be cool, not unbearably hot like the last time we ran trails.

I'm doing my 10 mile run this morning since my husband has off from work. After that I get to go to the dentist to get two cavities filled. I'm really not excited about the needles in my gums aspect, but at least I can stop by Chik-fil-a for a milkshake lunch on the way home.
|Almost worth a trip to the dentist. Almost.|
Tomorrow is Peanut's first (and possibly only) race! My mom is going to walk the 5K with Faith while I run with Peanut, so hopefully she can take some good action shots. :)
Do you know what your first word (other than Mommy or Daddy) was?
What's your favorite kind of milkshake? I'm a big fan of the cookies and cream one from Chik-fil-a!
