New earmolds will have to wait, as Mother Nature has descended upon us in all her white and frigid glory. With 8-10 inches expected in our area today, I decided not to risk the drive. This turned out to be a great thing, as our speech therapy session could go forward as planned. And Nolan had an amazing "skyrocket" day.
While playing with the Aquadoodle, Nolan heard and said the word "wet." It was more of a "weh," but he said it over and over again. Then came "hop hop" when we were looking at a bunny picture, /p/ and /h/ sounds included. Goodness gracious, this kid is starting to imitate like crazy! He has also picked up some signs (banana and a few more I can't think of off the bat), but his word acquisition rate is now faster than his sign acquisition rate. I swear the kid said "dah go mmmmmm" (cow go moo) the other day, though I might be imagining it. Are two and three word sentences even possible at sixteen months of age?
