Watching Annie develop has been different. Borderline stressful. She's refused to learn a lot of signs, she just does a lot of throwing, pointing and grunting. At times Josh and I tossed around the thought that maybe she was autistic or had some other sensory disorder (her low vocabulary coupled with her sudden and almost uncatalyzed tantrums).
But in the last couple weeks she has really picked up her communication and has surprised us. It's been really fun to watch her figure it out and suddenly say a new word. Even Audrey is amazed at Annie's development.
Since the last list, she has picked up the following words:
- Audrey (Au'jee)
- Gayl (Dale - with a really soft l sound)
- Dora (Rora)
- pizza (tee-zta)
- dog (ghog)
- poo-poo (or maybe it's boo-boo or boobie - I can't tell)
