Speech talk

The speech therapist says to keep working with Bella thru out the day with things they had worked on in their session. Today it's working on "I want...." to practice 3-4 word sentences. Usually Bella just says "Juice" if she wants juice....etc.

Bella "Mommy's juice...." (the only way I can get her to drink V8 is by telling her its mine)
Mommy "No... say I want Mommy's juice"
Bella "Mommy's juice"
Mommy "Come on sweetie...say I. WANT. first"
Bella "I want"
Mommy "And then Mommy's Juice"
Bella "Mommy's juice" (yes with a grin this time, b/c i know she knows what I want her to do)
Mommy "I. WANT. MOMMY. JUICE."
Bella "I want mommy's juice."
Mommy "Yay, good job!" *high five*
Mommy "Ok, one more time, I want mommy's juice"
Bella "Mommy's juice"
Mommy *sigh*

LOL! That is so cute!! Three year olds have a mind of their own. See, she knows how to say it. She just doesn't want to. Especially if you want her to;)

Yay, progress! She's just messing with your head, now! But you know she can do it, so she can't get by with it anymore!
