Day 3: Language...

Eli and Emerson's speech has always been a concern for me. I still think that they're behind where they should be but they've come so far especially Emerson.

She's doing so much better stringing words together and although she mostly mimics still we do get an actual answer or a response. This morning Emerson crawled into bed with me and we were reading a book together. (Marcus and Eli were in the kitchen). Marcus called for Emerson to come eat her eggs. Emerson looked at me and said, "Daddy crazy." haha I dies laughing.

Yesterday I told her I was going to take a shower and her response to that was, "mama stinky" and whenever Marcus sings Emerson says, "daddy don't"

Eli is also coming along and although he's not doing as well putting words together he's so cute when he tells me stories in one word a time. I worked in town today quite a bit and had several meetings. When I came home Eli told me about their day.  He said, Emmy. Owie. daddy. and then he kissed the air.

In essence he was telling me that Emerson got an owie and daddy kissed it better, but instead of saying kiss he showed me a kiss. So cute.

I'm so grateful for their continued language development and how far they've come.

So cute! I've heard that twins can sometimes be behind in language development just for a little while.

Sounds like your cuties are right on track though and I love the "daddy crazy." That's great!

I love the things they come out with! They're always right to the point and absolutely hysterical.

Sounds like they're doing pretty good to me :-)
