Words, Words and More Words!

As promised, we are beginning to see less and less developmental differences between XO and Sage. The three month gap becomes smaller day by day. Both girls are walking, running and twirling their way across rooms. Both girls are very vocal in their likes and dislikes. Both girls have their favorite lovey that brings unending comfort and joy. XO began talking a few months ago with a “Mei-Mei” (younger sister in Chinese) and quickly followed it up with a Mei-Mei Lai (Sister come). This of course is always accompanied with her sign for come. 

Over the last month, XO has added, oo for shoe, dog, mom, dad and. . .the best of the best...binkie. It would appear as if all of XO’s words surround those things that are nearest and dearest to her heart. The signs she knows also surround things she wants or thinks she needs. Other than that, Xian is content with her limited vocabulary. (With that said, we are unsure all of what she says as she is tackling more than one language and our Chinese is limited).

Sage has entered into the world of speaking. However, Sage’s world does not revolve around connections she’s made with people or items around the house. Sage’s world is one of movement and noise. She pinballs from place to place and touches everything and anything her little hands can get ahold of. So it was no surprise to us when she violently waved her hand and yelled, “BYE BYE!” At first we thought it was a coincidence, but over the weekend, she has proven that “bye-bye”, a wave of the hand, quickly followed by a huge cheesy grin and a hearty clapping of the hands, has definitely entered into her new repertoire.

The girls...
