Update on Elijah’s Language Development

Today, we had a doctor’s appointment. When our family doctor walked into the room Elijah asked, “Whos tat?”. I told Elijah “He is our doctor” while signing “DOCTOR”. Elijah proceeded to smile and repeat “do tor”.

Later during the day Elijah asked to ride his strider “BIKE”. He became brave enough to take a few small steps forward. Elijah beamed with joy and told me “I got this”. First time I heard the word got and used in the right context. WOW! 

I decided to update his word page. At the mere age of 16 months, Elijah has an English & Sign vocabulary of…. 73 words!!
