One little girl crawled all the way up a full flight of stairs by herself this week, accompanied by many cheerleaders!
…and KISSED ME for the first time today!!!!!!
Here she is having fun with her first icing/gingerbread man experience! Sorry for the rotten photo quality–this was The Only Photo I took in the last couple of weeks! More on that in the next post!
And another little girl’s speech therapist has been asking us for months to make a list of all the words or phrases she says spontaneously. It never seemed to fit into the rest of life.
At her two year assessment back in June, I had expressed concern about Verity’s lack of spontaneous speech. She’d mimic just about anything while we were working with her, but we rarely heard her talk without prompting.
Some older photos of Funny-doodle for you. Her personality and sense of humor have been blossoming like never before!
Way past my nap time…
We finally started that list of Verity’s spontaneous speech during this past month. Hung a piece of notebook paper on the side of the fridge and wrote down every word or phrase she said without prior prompting. Words like “banana” and “zebra” and “paper” and “lollipop.” Phrases like “Go to bed” and “My glasses on” and “Kick ball” and “This over here.”
There are one hundred forty-three words and phrases on her list, and counting.
