Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


No and Yes

My daughter has really started to expand her vocabulary in the past week or two. She says no perfectly clear and in the right context. We can sort of have conversations now that she understands. It’s great because I can ask her if she wants something or if she likes something and she can clearly tell me no.

On the other hand, she doesn’t say yes. I’m not quite sure why. If I ask her if she wants something and she does she just laughs. We show her that you shake your head up and down for yes and practice pronouncing yes all the time but she just can’t pick it up.

Some other things she can say are neigh (for a horse), rawr (for a bear and apparently a deer), pool, pee pee, poop, bug bites, hi, bye, bo (our dog), nana, ow, minnie, mick, daisy, goof, dona (donald) and some others that I’m sure I’m forgetting.

She understands a lot of things without being able to say them too. She knows the majority of her body parts. You can ask her where her hair, eyes, ears, nose, chin, jaw, mouth, teeth, cheeks, elbows, fingers, hands, legs, knees, feet, toes, belly, boobies, neck and booty are and she will point to each of them.

I’m so proud of her and her little achievements. It makes me such a proud mommy when I see her progress. She is quite the big girl too. She can walk up and down the stairs all by herself. She holds onto the railing it’s really adorable. She can also get on and off of her rocking horse all by herself. On the other side of this she can also pull a chair out and climb on top of the dinner table. I usually find her dancing up there during her lunch.

How did your child’s language skills develop? Was it all at once or slowly over time?
