I was about the put C down for her nap when she looked at me and while signing “eat,” said “orange”… Which actually sounds like “ornjshhh” or something like that.
I was so excited, I jumped up and took her to the kitchen – mid naptime routine – and showed her an orange. I said, “is this what you want?” And with an excited smile, she said “yes.”
How cool is that? She can say some words, but that feels like the first time that she used a word to tell me that she wanted something that wasn’t in front of her.
And being that the poor little buns woke up with a fever that hasn’t ceased and thus has barely eaten today, I was happy to oblige.
