Say cheese!

For quite a while now, of course, Evelyn has been making a wide variety of sounds. She uses ‘ma ma’ to mean me, and ‘da da’ to mean Aidan. We can tell when she wants something, when she’s hurt, and so on, from the sound she makes. But until two days ago, she really hadn’t applied many real words deliberately to real objects. (Mostly just ‘woof’, but that seems to apply to lots of animals, not just dogs!)

And then she said ‘cheese!’ It was sort of more like ‘zeez’ at first, but her pronunciation got better the more she tried. And she was pointing at the cheese at the time.

She’s also showing increased comprehension; she seems to understand most of what is said to her, even if she can’t respond in kind. She can point to various parts of her body when asked, and she responds enthusiastcally to the mention of foods she likes.

    Lola does the same thing. She is starting to talk more and more and probably has at least 30 words in her vocabulary, but she definitely understands a lot more than she lets on.
