status: 14 months
mama (mostly when upset);
up (a rarity employed only when she really means business - as in GET ME OUT OF THIS CAR SEAT NOW!);
bottle (uttered as bo bo bo ba ba ba);
moo (cows are a recent favorite toy of hers);
oink (for the pink pig she plays with when the special educator comes to the house for therapy);
bubble (so rare these days, and comes out as bubububububububububub, but that's pretty darn close!)
and as of now,
yep, our little apple cheeks has two 80-pound Labradors as playmates who she loves and who love on her, but, alas,
there's no woof woof yet.
nope, its meow. and, she's only been around a cat once.
of course, most of these "words" when uttered are approximations on the sounds; the only clear word (as it has been from the start, much to my chagrin) is DADA.
our little girl is starting to speak.
and the sign language - forget about it! she's mastered "more" and "all done" and hi and bye and drink.
i can't wait till tomorrow to hear or see her say her next word.
mama's pride: bountiful!
ps: if you want to find a great set of stuffed farm animals to work with, IKEA has a very affordable option. emma carries her cow, bull, and pig around with her constantly.
