Our little Avri has been slowing changing into a "big girl" before our eyes. She still is the size of a 12-18 month old, but the terrible twos are creeping in.
While we were living in Utah, our pediatrician was concerned about Avri's "delayed" speech and wanted us to see an Audiologist to get her checked out. Since we were dealing with her arthritis and possibly heart problems, I decided it wasn't a priority - after all she had been listening to two different languages since birth.
This last month or so, I feel like my "wait and see" decision was validated. While, Avri still doesn't talk a TON, she has definitely hit that language explosion stage.
Some of her favorites words:
- Sissy (Kelsie)
- Lolo or Broder (Logan)
- Melmo (Elmo)
- Memi (Baby Emi)
- dink (drink)
- Lyla (her bff)
- pop pop (popcorn)
- pipi (pizza)
- more (signs it too)
- shhhhh (with finger)
- nose, eye, mouth, ear
- Minnie (mouse)
- Mi Moon (mr. moon)
- Ittai ("it hurts" in Japanese)
If she doesn't know the words for what she wants you to do, she grabs your hands and walks you to it. She's pretty effective at communicating what she wants.
After a Sunday night shot from her Daddy. Hard times for them both, but the medicine seems to be working! She is starting to run after and not have very many bad days. :)
Eating her "pipi" at Round Table. :)
