We've been worried about Emily's learning and talking and in recent weeks it's been going a LOT better than it has ever.
She's starting to say things in context, and not being prompted. Tonight she said goodbye to Helen without being asked, and said cake when she looked at one of Sue's dessert chocolate eclairs.
Last night, while watching the Gruffalo on DVD, she said something that resembled butterfly when said creature appeared on screen.
Wordwise, she's already saying "read" with book in hand, to an annoying level. However, instead of saying "drink" or similar, she's just letting out incessant screams.
We're getting there, and I can't wait until she's talking in multiple words.
We're off to see the language specialist again tomorrow, and I'd like to think that she's going to see quite an improvement in Emily.
