Nora has just discovered Elmo and calls him Mo-mo. This may be her first real word. I know she has said mama, but it was only twice in regards to me. But every time she sees Elmo, (or a stuffed frog) she says Mo-mo. She is using the sign for more and all done. We're trying to get her to sign please and milk. She can physically do those signs, just not on command and in reference to the meanings. Hopefully she'll start signing or talking sooner than later. She also sings the song Baa baa black sheep. She has a tune and says ba ba ba ba ba to the tune. Very cute.

Her speech therapist is using 2 flash cards and asking her to point to an object. Nora will 9 times out of 10 point to the correct picture. Pretty good. She starts back at school July 7 so we haven't been doing much work at home. Emma is at camp this week at her school so she's pooped at the end of the day.

Only 3 more days until Katie and Mim get here. We are all so excited. Nora has been sleeping throughout the night for the past few days so hopefully that will the case while we have visitors.

Happy summer! Can't believe it's almost July~

Sophie's Story by Elaine said...

Sophie LOVES her flashcards. She will bring them to me and we will go through them about 3 or 4 times before she will let me stop. Her favorite is the Baby Einstein Language Discovery Cards. She will do a sign, sound or word for almost all the cards (i.e. hold up "horn" and she will say "toot toot" or hold up "car" and she will sign "car").

Nora will be there before you know it.
