Sweet Words

For a long time, I thought something was seriously wrong with Hannah. I know you aren't supposed to compare your kids to each other, but Emma was the only milestone "benchmark" I had to judge Hannah's progress on. Hannah did all of the motor skills well ahead of what Emma had done. However, Emma could speak in full sentences at her first birthday. Hannah...could not. I was extremely bothered by this and thought maybe something was wrong with Hannah (I know...I'm crazy...but I am just saying!) So, at her last visit with Dr. Lovell, we were talking about this. He did think I was crazy and told me so. Come to find out, Emma was EXTREMELY advanced and her talking that well was not normal. He told me that by 18 months, kids should be able to say between 2 and 10 words to be considered average. I breathed a sigh of relief to find out that not only was nothing wrong with Hannah, but she is well on her way to being considered advanced! Below is a video of some of her sweet words...

Ok I so want to kiss her right now. She is growing up so fast. I wished we lived closer so I could see the girls more often. Keep sending us videos and work with her on my name!!!
