Baby T's words

Our pediatrician had some concerns about delays in Baby T's speech a couple months ago and had us take her to a speech therapist for an evaluation.  Her comprehension was good, but her productive speech was a little slow (she was relying heavily on the point-and-grunt at that point).  Well, I'm happy to report that Baby T is starting to use words in her requests--more, cookie, blueberry, etc (that's not exactly how she says any of them, but that's what she means).  She also seems to say a lot of clothing words now:  shirt, shoes, and some word that sounds like "p" that may be either pajamas or pants--not sure which.

Baby T is also interested in dressing and has tried to put on pants.  She can put on her shoes pretty well (and sometimes goes and gets them).  She also heads over to her feeding seat at meal times.

It's a very interesting time--her speech is just starting to snowball and she has a strong sense already of how things ought to be.
