Recently, we have started hearing the end of some words. Turtle, purple, bubble, done (this is a favorite when she doesn't want to do anything), cheese. This week she finally said all of "cracker". Today at speech therapy, the little stinker said "pumpkin". Yes, pumpkin. The entire word, beginning to end.
Yes, I'm happy that she said the word. I find it ironic though because every night Hailey walks to the fridge, signs milk and says "bottle". Every night we make her say (or sign..depending on the mood) "want milk please". What we get is "aunt bottle ease". We say "cup" and she nods yes and says "bottle". No matter how much we try, the girl will not say cup. I find it funny she won't try to say cup but she will say pumpkin.
Just another reminder, Hailey does what Hailey wants to do on Hailey's time :-) She's been like that since birth, I don't figure it will change anytime soon!
