I know that a TON of blogs do a "Wordless Wednesday" feature. They'll post a deep and meaningful photo with lots of natural light and contrast. (I do enjoy them, by the way.) Obviously, I have words in this post. But I thought it was an appropriate title for my Charlotte update.
Charlotte is now...wow...over eighteen months. (How did that happen?!?!) She is all caught up with other eighteen month old babies in height, weight, motor skills. However, she is still lagging in the language department. She can communicate. She is very clear in letting us know what she wants - pointing, babbling, screaming very loudly. But her articulation is just where a fourteen or fifteen month old baby would be. She doesn't say any words (aside from "mama") or make any other hard constant sounds. But I'm not terribly worried. I think she will catch up when she's ready. In the meantime, we've got hearing tests lined up, speech therapy sessions to attend (all under doctor's orders; I swear I'm not overreacting and being crazy mom). I guess I should just enjoy the babble while I can. When I can actually understand her, it might not be so cute anymore. :)
Here's a video clip of her babbling away while sitting at a computer in Justin's office.
