Nerys seems to have experienced a bit of a developmental leap.
All of a sudden she’s found a real confidence on her feet and is communicating more and more. And, I have to admit, she’s caught me by surprise a little bit!
Here are some of the things she’s suddenly discovered she can do:
- Run. She’s been walking for about 3 months and has suddenly discovered that she can also run. Normally away from me, laughing maniacally.
- Climb the stairs in 3 seconds flat. Seriously, when did she get so fast?!
- Open things. The kitchen drawers, the dishwasher, it’s all fair game now. I’m spending a lot of my time saying ‘no’ and moving her away from things.
- Get what she wants by signing ‘please’. Well, she thinks that if she points at what she wants and signs ‘please’ then she can have it. It works when she wants her brother’s hat. Doesn’t work when she wants the sharp pair of scissors on the table!
