Learning new things

Learning new things

Emily loves to draw, which seems pretty cool considering she's only 14 months old, but she really surprised us when she climbed up on this little chair (belonging to Ana) and started coloring today.

This kid's got more concentration than me.

Emily is doing so many new things. Her speech therapist was so impressed with her progress that she thinks Emily may not need therapy much longer. She has started saying "bye" and waving and she babbles a lot now using both vowels and consonant sounds (a very good sign this soon after palate surgery). I have heard her say "night night" and "catch" and she seems to be trying to say other words such as "again" which was just sort of a "g" noise.

She is climbing and walking a lot more now. Here is my little chubster in a swim diaper (we played outside with Ana and the garden hose). She can climb up and down on that toy without falling (mostly).

Her progress is amazing. Seems she wants to make up for lost time.
