Today for Thanksgiving Dinner, we went to Grandma's house. Instead of saying her regular nay and no, she started saying, "Nay Nay" and "No No". Not sure where this is coming from. This is the only difference I noticed today.

We had a Thanksgiving Dinner at our house today, with my family. My sis was in from out of town, and she brought my neices who are 13 and almost 3.
Halley and Zoe (almost 3), played really well together. Zoe seemed to understand everything that Halley said. Zoe was hard to understand also. They both seem to be at the same level of speech. It was like they both had their own language thing going on.
Saturday/Sunday November 24-25, 2001
Today, I babysat Zoe for awhile, she slept most of the time, while her parents were gone. When she woke up she wanted some cereal, so of course Halley wanted some too. I sat them both down at the table with a bowl of Cheerios. They sat across the table from each other. They both were yelling a word at each other, and then laughing. They both giggled non-stop. They kept looking at each other under the table, saying some word, and then laughing.
After the relatives left, Halley and I were in the kitchen, and Halley saw her bottle of Pro-Efa, and touched it and then said, "I don't like it", clear as a bell.

Today, I was thinking about Halley's progress in the past week, and it seems as if she has planed out a bit. I am noticing the same words, and very few additional words. Maybe it is just me, because I see her everyday. her speech therapist told me she did well, but she complained that she did not feel good, and that her tummy hurt. She told me that she completely understood her. So maybe it is just me.

I forgot to mention, yesterday, Halley and I were watching the Grinch (movie), and during the part where the girl sings, Halley started singing after her, if she would say Christmas, then Halley would sing Christmas. It was such a sweet soung to hear her sing!
Then tonight, I thought she was in her room, and she was actually in the hallway, my hubby and I were watching Buffy (I know, I know, great tv eh?) and I said, Oh look Buffy is going to kick her ass, then out of nowhere, Halley appears, and kindof giggled, then said, "Ass?", then covered her mouth, then looked at me giggled again, and said it one more time. With apraxia, (I hope I am not alone on this), if she says a word I am thrilled, though ass is not a word I would like to hear her say, and I told her that, I was happy to hear it.
She also told me: Baby Lizard
My Fish Bites
