Dd1 now on phrases

We have been working on expanding dd1's communication and moving her from single words to phrases.

Her best are when asking for something - we now get drink please mummy/daddy etc

However the other day she was being a right pain in the butt and so after warning her - put her in her room. She started to cry and whinge.

As I went past with dd2 to another room - dd1 hung over her stairgate and told me 'X( her name) crying.'

Just in case I missed it great phrase and signing.

That's lovely

I get "ay own" (hands down) shouted when he's pinching me.

Awww! That's great news, eidsvold . You'll soon be feeling guilty for wishing she'd be quiet when you've spent so long trying to encourage her to talk....

that is really sweet. my dd can't talk but does say hurry up makes ever one laugh(when I say she can't talk she has cp so even when she does say something it isn't that clear except things like hurry up)

Oh eidsvold, it's it great when it really hits you out of the blue!!!!

Amelia has been part signing/part saying quite a few words strung together now. for example " I want milk please mummy" but it seems almost parrot fashion IYSWIM. It took me by surprise this morning though- Put some honey on her weetabix and DS asked if he could have a little bit in his spoon. Amelia then said " I want runny honey spoon please mummy!!!"

Her words are still so unclear, but it's great to know she has some idea of a sentence!!!

I hope things are all good with you eidsvold. Give those girls a big hug please!!
