Did you notice in the first video that Sophie grabbed my toes when I asked her to point to the "sippy"? I think this is because they refer to her toes as "piggies" at the babysitter's house and it sounded similar to her. :)
Anyway, as you can see, Sophie's receptive language is growing! We hadn't looked at any of those books for over a week, so she is also retaining most things that she learns. She knows at least 60+ words now and picks up more daily. Not bad for 3 months hearing!
Since she knows so many words, we are now focusing on two word combinations. In the video below, I asked Sophie to choose between two objects and then take an action. She had to first identify the correct object and then complete the proper action.
Sophie chose the dog and gave him a kiss and then chose the duck and made him "walk". She also made her baby "jump", but I didn't get that on tape. I started out with objects that she easily knows, but we will try harder combos soon. This is a pretty difficult task for any 12 month old, so I'm pretty darn proud of her. :) We have her IFSP review coming up in May and we are hoping that First Steps will give approval for Sophie to attend Moog in the fall. I can't believe we are already at this point - I could not be more excited!
I feel like this blog has been all videos lately, but it's the best way to capture all of her language milestones! I'm still working on getting "ma-ma" on tape, so cross your fingers for that. ;)
