Radha's latest development spurt has definitely been all about communication. She's starting to talk, and also her non-verbal communication is coming along nicely. She's always been pretty focused on mental things more than physical, often preferring books over toys. Here's a snapshot of where she's at:
Words: Mama, Dada, cat, cheese, Baba (for her Grandpa), bath, lots of attempts to repeat what we're saying
Signing: "More", "Eat", and gesturing along to songs like Ittsy Bittsy Spider and 5 Little Monkeys
Body Parts she knows: Head, hair, fingers, toes, arms, eyes, ears, mouth, nose
Singing: Twinkle twinkle, 5 Little Monkeys
Animals she recognizes: Duck, dog, cat, cow, pig, sheep, snake, frog, fish, monkey
There's plenty more I'm forgetting!
