She actually just said that Kaiya should be talking a big more, using more words in general, and when she uses said words string them together in either two or preferably three word sentences. We are on mission teach Kaiya how to speak now. I chase her around the house repeating whatever word I'm trying to bang into her head: "shoe, shoe, shoe, say shoe!!" Or when she says a word, like "cheese" I start in with: "say I want cheese. I... I... want. want. cheese!" She just grins at me. The thing is the kid really does want to learn, most of the time, and it's like she's drinking in the attention so I feel like this is mostly my fault. I mean, do I really have to talk to her in compound sentence structure all the time? (or, worse, scream at her so she can't even understand what I'm saying?) I've noticed she watches my mouth closely when I am trying to teach her a new word or reenforce an old one. It's like she's drinking in the words. So, if my posts are a little choppy for a while, you understand. Must. Must learn.
Feel free to pray for my little girl, my prayer is here.
