Behold...She Speaks!!!

I dreamed of the day when I would finally hear Hannah's first words. Oh how my heart would swell with pride and love. Finally after so long of waiting the blessed day arrived. Hannah looked lovingly into my eyes and said..."Ball!" ...Not exactly what I was expecting but we're making progress. She also says "bye." But the communication barrier is finally starting to come down. I've been teaching her ASL and she can now sign milk, ball, all-done, and bye-bye. In addition to her language skills her motor skills are also picking up. She has now designated a shoe box as her stepping stool which she strategically places around the house. Can't reach the piano keys or climb up on the couch? Problem solved! Nothing's going to stop this girl.

Oh dear...
