My little sponge was a slow starter for talking, but lately has been picking up words right and left. Here are some of the words Michaela can say now:
knee-yo - cheerios or any cereal knee- cheese, snake awa - agua (water) puppy mowe-more, mouth bow - ball, bird, brother, or bigo (belly button) poe - poop guy - Rafael mao- mouse rawr - dinosaur, bear, tiger, lion, etc nigh- night mummy- mommy daddy eye know-nose ewe- ear hi bye baa - bad ha - hot appow - apple, elbow, red no boo- book ti ti - chi chi (boobs)
It may not be much but I'm a quiet person and I can tell that her verbal skills are fine in other ways. She understands pretty much everything and is able to follow two or three step commands or instructions. She's also starting to put together two words at a time to form simple sentances. Soon she'll be chattering away like crazy, so I need to write this down now so I can remember her sweet little voice and her first attempts at communication.
