Sunday, March 27th, 2011
With a few inches of snow on the ground this morning my hopes were dashed of getting to ride my big girl bike outside today. Yesterday, Daddy let me ride it around in the garage with the door closed to keep warm. For not really riding it since getting it for my birthday last summer I am already a pro racing around and around the garage.
So today it was a lazy day at home. We didn't accomplish much of anything besides catching up on the laundry. Mommy was noticing today how much of a talker I have become. She needs to listen really closely and still only gets about 50% of what I am trying to say but I have a lot to say at this point! It used to be that our conversations existed mostly in one or two word signs/words that Mommy would then piece together into a sentance. Now I really am talking in sentances. One of our conversations went like this:
P: "You sit there"
P: "You be the kid and I be the teacher"
M:"Is your name Miss Peyton?"
P: "No, Peyton Teacher"
M:"OK Peyton Teacher, can I go to the potty"
P: "No, not right now"
M: "Why not?"
P: "You need to hurry"
There was a time Mommy wasn't sure I would ever be able to develop the skills to produce speech. Even though I am difficult to understand I have demonstrated that I am not only perfectly capable of producing speech but I am doing it pretty close to what a typical three year old would do despite hardly making any sounds before the age of 2. In fact, Mommy is noticing that it is sometimes difficult to get a word in edgewise, she has to point to her ear and ask me to "listen" while she talks!
