Beth’s first recognizable, non-repeating sound word: “Alex”
Of course, it doesn’t sound exactly right, more like A-ix (soft A & I), but she will say it on command. She first did it for Eric and Alex this morning before I got up, but she did it later for me. And then just now, when I opened Alex’s bedroom door to start waking him up from his nap, she said Alex about 10 times before pushing open his door and crawling in.
Beth’s second word: “Hi”
Eric came home from dropping Jenna off yesterday and he said “Hello Elizabeth” to Beth when he came in. She said “Hi” back!
