Finally she has learnt my name. Tonight she (Mercedes) was calling me 'Ma Ma'. Usually she calls me 'Dad'. And when she wants a feed she makes the signal for milky and says what sounds like 'eky' with an enquiring tone. We are still working on a few more signals.
She refuses to use the food signal and instead goes to the fridge and tries to open it. When she wants a drink she will go and get one of her cups from the cupboard.
I stick out my tounge with an open mouth going 'eeww' to symbolise something bad and not to put in her mouth. If she still does put it in her mouth she will then spit it out in my hand. This worked well tonight as she put a softdrink bottle top in her mouth and it got stuck. She came straight to me and i popped it out.
My baby is communicating!
