I am totally blown away with the amount of knowledge and understand Indie has now. I've always spoken to her even though I knew she didn't really get it, and couldn't respond. But it seems to be a whole different story these days! If I mention teeth she will grab my hand, take me to the bathroom and ask for her toothbrush - same with her shoes (unless she can reach them she'll bring them to me). She will answer 'yes' or 'no' to questions we ask her and knows exactly who 'baby brother' is. She also eats so well with a spoon and fork - yay to less mess!
Her speech is developing so much too. Her little voice is so sweet and when she says certain things my heart absolutely melts. She can say:
Hiya - bye bye - mummy - daddy - nanny - grandad - baby - teeth - shoes - yes - no - bubble - 'choo choo' for a train - yay - bunny - juice - 'toodles' (from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) - George (Curious George), no (complete with look and pointing haha), aww, yay, woof woof, all gone, what's that?, and more!
What's also developing is this little madam's attitude! She is an absolute diva and really likes to get her own way. She still doesn't really share (she tells off other children who dare to look at Jack when she's at nursery haha), and gets very possessive over things. If she's told no she will throw herself on the floor kicking and screaming too! The biggest thing is now hitting and throwing - she's mastered the art of the 'swipe' and knocks down anything in front of her if she's in a bad mood!
