"Our patience will achieve more than our force" Edmund Burke
Boy do I need to remember this quote more often. Lately I have been worrying about Liv's speech, or lack there of. I know that she is basically a quiet child, but I really thought she would be picking up more words by now. She will say, Momma, Dadda, backpack (thank you Dora), hot, this, that, and apple. I know that is not too bad, but theses are the same words she has said for the last few months. I must say that she understands everything and I mean everything we say, even when we are not talking to her. She also communicates to us what she wants or needs with her own little sign language. It's just that I really thought she would be adding more words to her vocabulary by now, this weekend she will be 20 months. So today I made an appt with her Dr for next week, just to make sure that she is on track. I know he is going to tell me she's fine and to just let her go at her own pace. She will talk when she is ready, so for now I will rely on being patient.
Vinay put together Liv's table and chairs last night, it only took 2 hours, but it's the last of things she got for Christmas that needed to be put together.
