Thank You Update

I asked Shelby's teachers if they've heard her say "thank you," and they have not. But, they are certainly on high alert now! They're thrilled that she's using one of their "polite words." They use 'please' & 'thank you' all day long.

Tonight, however, Shelby pulled off one of her socks and said (in her own way): Sock!!!!! It sounded like "Th-xs." It's definitely 2 distinct sounds strung together. The second syllable sounds like a quick, Pilates exhale. I'm no linguist in writing it with the proper symbols for pronunciation! :)

If I hadn't been listening so intently for "thank you," I might have missed "socks!" There's so much babbling at all times. So, it's hard to sift through it. Hopefully there will be more words to come in the near future!
