Going down to Bradford on Avon acted as something of a powerhouse under nora in the speech department. Partially I think because McK's parents aren't as aware of her shorthand, so she felt a bit more compelled to speak, but also importantly, Mck's Mum used to be in social services and had quite a lot of training in speech therapy for one reaon and another.
Next thing you know, the words list has expanded. I'm expecting this to be the last short list, since her word list seems to be growing exponentially:
Moon (of course. Dan :)
Mummy (at last!)
... agh. and some others I forget. To be revised shortly...
Poo (with a very soft "p" so it sounds almost like "Foooo")
...you know... you start with the important stuff. Yesterday Dahh-dee made its first appearance, and this morning Nooo-aaa.
As ever, eternally fascinating to us, but not exactly world shattering events in themselves. Like I care what you think!
