Wow, Payton's vocabulary is just exploding. She never ceases to amaze me with what's coming out of her mouth these days. She also amazes me at what she's signing. She can sign all of her colors, sign play, game, time, sink, team, football, etc. She is just picking up signs left and right. She has trouble getting her fingers to do exactly what they should be doing - but I think it's great that she's trying and surely it's helping some with fine motor trying to get those fingers to do things. She now loves saying "Mmm...that good", "That cool!", "That my favorite" (or "That my Thomas favorite" - I guess she throws the word Thomas in the middle of it because she loves Thomas the train). And, if you ask her a question, such as "would you like carrots for a snack?" she is apt to say "Sure. Great Idea!". And, her favorite question is "What her/his name?". When we were at the doctor the other day she was asking me about everyone she saw "what her name?" I love it! I am a very shy person and usually don't say much - so I have a feeling she is going to bring me out of my shell.
I am feeling much much better today. I finally broke down and went to the doctor yesterday and it turned out I had bronchitis and an ear infection. Thank God for antibiotics.
Here's a pic of my little man....I still cannot believe this guy. When you have a child with special needs you take absolutely nothing for granted.....I am eating all of this up! Payton talking like crazy and Koen changing by leaps and bounds.
