Emily says her name... sort of

We've been getting Emily to say words by dropping out words in stories and songs and getting her to fill them in. Over the last few months, we've been able to drop out more and more words and she's been filling in more and more words.

Recently we've been watching a video on YouTube about Emily, the emerald green train on Thomas The Tank Engine.

The lyrics go something like "there's noone quite like Emily. Shiny emerald Emily." This weekend I managed to get Emily to fill in the missing word "Emily" with what actually sounds like "Emily". I'm FULLY aware she has NO concept that the Emily she's filling the word in for is actually her name.

I guess our next step is get her to understand things in concept.
