Mary has added "match," "bottle," "basket,"
"get it," "drop it," "boat," "marker," "chicken"
and "all gone" to her vocabulary. This
afternoon mother & I had Katie Maurice ?,
?, Mrs. Ryan, Mrs. Flynn & Paula
over. We made twenty five wash rags
for the Red Cross. Served a little
lunch. John & Geo. came and ate
supper with Harry. The three boys
had a good time together. They all
spent the evening with us. We knitted
while young Geo. & Lewis kept up
a continual rough house. Harry went
to K. C. tonight.
Friday, Jan. 4, 1918
It has been a glorious day. Mother
& I finished cleaning up the house.
I put Mary in her buggy this afternoon
and kept her out until 5 o'clock. Jessie
& ? brought their work over this
eve. We worked awhile -- then had a
game of bridge. Had a message from
Harry that he wouldn't be back tonight.
While putting Mary to bed tonight
other words she has learned occurred
to me, "stocking, shirt, powder,
tickle, wash and dress." She takes
my hand and says "?" -- wants me
to get her ? The development
of words is very interesting to note.
