Last week in my medicine closet, I found more soybeans.
Last night in my freezer, I found some applesauce cleverly disguised as "juiced trout liver, '87."
Helen is expanding her vocabulary almost daily. It's almost scary. She now says:
all done (AHHH-DAH!)
please (peece or beece)
thank you (thay)
NO and no-no (these are extremely clear)
woof (a barking sound)
cracker (cah-cah) Uh....yummmmm....anyone?
and probably a few more I am forgetting right now.
She is transferring the use of her known vocabulary to new situations, and it's fun to see her grasping language as a tool. When getting her diaper changed last week (not a favorite activity on anyone's part), she signed and said AHHHH-DAH, thay! And just to make her point clear, added, "No-no, NO!" Saturday evening after supper at Grandma's house, when told to tell Grandma thank you, she shook her head and said "NO!"
Owen says lots and lots of things, but still only vowels and a few consonant sounds. When we work with him on the "P" sound, Helen (gloatingly?) goes "Pah! Pah! Pah!" Little stinker.
