This past week V has done some amazing things.
She has said thank you to me, without prompting. I handed her a cup of milk and she said, “Thank you.” She did it again with her dad. He put her socks on in the morning and she said “thank you” to him.
Secondly, she has told me when she wants to take a nap. A few days ago, right around nap time, she said “nap” and then went to go find her blankets and teddy bears, signaling that she’s ready to lie down. Sure enough, I put her in her crib and she was happy to lie down and sleep.
