Speech progress

Nea has been making a lot of progress lately, but not much in spontaneous speech. More so when being prompted to add the final T to words she says like “lou(d).” The final D is harder than a final T, so I say she’s just saying it in German: laut.

But then two days ago she made two exciting developments. She wanted a penny to throw into the fountain so she tugged at my purse and said “money.” Later after dinner I wanted to wash her hands, but she examined her hands and said “no dirty.” Her first spontaneous two word combo.

Nea turned four yesterday, and I’m feeling pretty good!

It's just not right that she is four. I think you're counting wrong, I really do.
