Use Your Words

The doctor asks

“How are her words? Does she know any body parts yet?”

The only word G will say reliably is “Cat!” Yes, she says it when she sees the Cat….and a dog, a bird, any type of food and sometimes for the joy of saying “Cat!”

She has one other word, the American Sign Language symbol for “more”, although as far as she is concerned, it means “Do what I want you to do, right now.”

We’ve been working on nose, more to get her to touch my nose gently rather than for the vocabulary aspect of it. Still, I try and heed the doctor’s advice, so we started working on more facial features.

Today we re-enforced ‘nose’, practiced ‘ear’ learned ‘mouth’ as well as “Oh F**K OH F**K F**K That’s my EYE LETITGO THAT’SMYWHOLEF**KING EYEBALL!!!”

  1. Pretty sure I heard her say “Tit”


  2. Did I tell you, no I told Yr. Better Half… but maybe you witnessed. At the BBQ she sat down in the little chair and I lifted up the chair and gave her a little ride… I set her down and asked her for an evaluation, and she whipped out the the ASL “MORE” before I could blink. I think she got three more rides out of me before I “had to go”. 😛

    • Yeah, that’s the one she learned before we gave up. As far as she is concerned, it means “Do what i want you to”, but I guess you knew that already.
