Lucy said her first 5 word sentence last week:
I want more toast please.
What was more exciting than that was that I actually understood her! Granted, it was in context (I was standing there with extra toast) but still. She is trying so much harder to communicate--talking away, gesturing wildly until she finally just grabs my hand and leads me to what she wants. More and more often, I am able to figure out what she is saying before we take the field trip to the object in question.
Yesterday Lucy had her final speech therapy session...she graduated!
As a reward for graduating I took Lucy to a new playlot in Lincoln Park. Nana had Kate at home so I was able to spend a good amount of one-on-one time with her which she thoroughly enjoyed...when she wasn't hugging the camel.
