My daughter is really beginning to take interest in the names of things, such as nose, mouth, cheek, chin, apple, yarn, needles, thank you, etc. It's SO cute hearing her try to say the word. I tell her, "Good job, Charis!!" She then just smiles.
On Saturday night, I put Charis in bed around 6:00 PM and closed the door. She did not fall asleep; I heard her talking to herself. An hour later she started crying, so I went back into her room, held and nursed her, sang to her, and prayed with her. Then I put her back in her crib. This time I thought she was asleep, and she may have been. 45 minutes later, I heard a shriek and went into her room again. Asked, "Charis, what's wrong?" She kept saying, "pl." I was puzzled and eventually asked, "Do you want an apple?" She nodded her head and smiled. I put her on the ground and she ran to the refrigerator, opened it up, and I got an apple out of the drawer and cut it up for the both of us.
I was thankful that she was able to communicate with me and I was able to understand. After eating her apple, I brushed her teeth, and she went to sleep this time. FYI, I gave her dinner around 5:00PM, but she had NO interest in eating her apple and scrambled eggs at the time.
