Speech is an area where Reagan is still significantly delayed. Not as much as she was six months ago when she only said a half-dozen words, but still quite delayed. We have learned quickly that this does not equate with her comprehension or desire to communicate being delayed. She imitates really well and loves to use sign too so her vocabulary is growing daily and this results in some rather hilarious exchanges. When she wants something and doesn't know how to say it she comes to me... "mommy, mommy...dis" and points or pulls me over to show me what she needs. She loves her books and will sit for very long periods of time "reading" and shoving the book under my nose to show me..."mommy, goggie", or "mommy, bird" or "mommy, dis, dis, dis".
