Vera has been picking up some new words lately! She already knew Dada, Mama, kitty, kitty cat, what’s that, and water (used rarely). She could also sign for milk. In the last week, she started saying water very clearly and frequently (as in, “water water water water” while pointing at her cup or the sink). She also is trying to sign for water as well (it’s a harder sign, since you have to make a “W” with three fingers and bring them to the corner of your mouth).
In the last week Vera also said “more” while signing for it at the same time. Tad is pretty sure he heard her say “bread” when he got her up from her nap. I am almost positive she said “water bottle” to me this weekend while holding one! I think I’ve heard her say “why?” a few times. She of course still signs for milk when she wants to nurse.
Her vocabulary is just exploding, but it doesn’t even come close to matching her comprehension level! This is such an exciting season.
