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!
