I realized last week I've taken communication for granted when Maddie and I had our first real conversation!
We were walking to the park.
Maddie was in her stroller.
As we turned the corner, and she realized we were going to the park this was our conversation...
Maddie: (squealing with delight) YAY!! Slide, yay!
Me: Yeah, the slide? Is that what you're most excited about?
Maddie: Kank-ooo (thank-you) momma!!
She's always been able to communication, whether it was non-verbal, using signs/gestures, and a few words here and there.
was a REAL back-and-forth conversation!!!
It's so exciting : )
She's accomplishing so much.
I can only imagine what things she will accomplish next year.
