We are back to the old grind. The twins had speech.
Missy vocabulary is increasing daily. Sometimes we don't noticed and then suddenly she's coming out with new words and sentences all over the place. The speech teacher mentioned that she is able to hold a conversation with her now. Before, Missy would offer a word here and there and everyone else had to guide and carry the conversation. A few months back we started hearing full sentences.
Today at class they discussed Christmas and the therapist was able to glean that Missy got a pair of pajamas and Vanessa got slippers,etc... I bent down and whispered, "Did you tell her you got a sled?"
Missy: "Oh, I forgot about the sled!!!"
The therapist laughed. That sentence was a perfect example of spontaneous communication. There was no struggle, no time to think about the words, she just blurted.
