I guess you would consider Liv a late talker. She really isn't saying much, she uses more of her own made up sign language to convey to me what she wants. Unfortunately only I can understand what she is saying so it can be frustrating to Vinay and my Mom. I try not to stress about it, I just figure with her hearing Spanish the first 5 months of her life, and then switching to English, she will eventually catch on, and she'll talk when she's ready.
Well yesterday morning Liv and I were playing outside, she saw her carriage outside the garage and wanted to go for a ride. I agreed since I could see a person from a certain religious group who go door to door, a few houses down. Now I have nothing against any religious groups. However This particular group in always in my neighborhood, in fact my Mom just answered the door for them on Saturday. So here they are again before I've had a chance to throw out the last pamphlet. So Liv and I head out in the opposite direction.
After about a half hour I look down my street and see that he has passed my house and the coast is clear. So quickly I steer her carriage on the opposite side of the street and head for home. Of course just as Liv and I are about to pass him, Liv from across the street, says "hi" and waves. Now I can't get this girl to say "Momma" "yes" "no" Bye", let alone "hi" to anyone she knows, but a perfect stranger, she says "hi". Of course the man then had to cross the street and come talk to me. I just pretended I didn't speak English, smiled, took the pamphlet, and went on our way. So I guess Liv uttered her first word and we have one heck of a story to tell her when she is older.
Here's a dose of cuteness for the week!!!
This is the last time she'll wear this dress, it was a bit snug getting on and off.
Running around when we went to visit my Mom at work one night.
Lately I will do anything to get this girl to eat, including letting some friends join her in the highchair.
"Can you believe I said my first word this week and I'm leaving this hairbow in? How good am I?"
