Alex is finally starting to say more words. Everything is still one syllable but she is making an effort. In the last week she said, "ow"- bow, nack- snack, and mi- milk. At least she is finally having the desire to talk. She will also now point to her nose, her bow, and sometimes her ear.
On a side note, I gave my kids several extra hugs and kisses tonight. One of my fellow teachers was called at work to tell her that her 7 month old little boy was unconscious and his temperature was dropping. After emergency brain surgery, he is finally in ICU. Just reminds me of how fast your world can change. These babies are my whole world. I just can not imagine all the things she must be going through. Never take your kids for granted and give them extra love. They grow up too fast anyway and won't let you love on them in public.
