One of my new words last week was MATCH. I had new jammies, and the top has an octupus with a flower in its hair. When I looked at it, I hopped out of bed and ran to the bathroom. Mommy assumed I wanted to see it in the mirror, but instead I retrieved a little mermaid from the bathtub. She also has a flower in her hair. I held it up to my shirt and said, "Match!" Each new word is celebrated because it is only achieved after much hard work. This spontaneous word was especially exciting - so exciting that Mommy gave me one of my Christmas presents early...matching dresses for my doll and me!
