At almost 16 months Avery's vocabulary has exploded! She is a little bird chirping in my ear all day long and I absolutely love it. Although a lot of her words are still unclear, she is learning new words daily and it's truly music to my ears! She repeats, re-listens, & asks "whats that?" while pointing her little finger all day long. Seriously, all day!! Communication in our family has been taken to a whole new level, we are no longer leaving Avery out of conversation.She loves to listen and respond to instructions, such as: throw this away, put your clothes away, take this back, pick up your toys, let's let the Moose out, are you ready for a nap, are you tired, are you hungry, want to go play at the Y, lets go outside, etc. These action phrases are really exciting for Avery, Bryce and I. We have our hands full with this little girl, but each day is a learning experience for the three of us.
