Ms. B says Duck's still struggling with the CVC and two-word phrases, but he's definitely progressing rapidly these days. It's only double consonant words where we hear two consonants, like mama, dada or na-nigh. As for two-word phrases, he has hi dada and see you down pat. Thank you is coming along.
The big news? He's starting to drop signs and pick up their verbal counterpart! Please is still difficult for him, but it's more because of the pl- beginning. Duck tries to say p(L)ease, but he knows that's not right, so he doesn't say it.
I C&P'd from my March 31 Duck's Progress and just moved things around. The words in blue is what's new in the last two months, but I'm sure there's more, though. I'll edit and update later tonight.
Na-nigh (night night)
You (with and without pointing at you)
Joos (juice or anything in a cup really)
Do-go (Go Diego Go)
Eye (sounds more like "ah")
Ball (for anything round, including a tomato)
(Ba)nana ---God forbid I walk by the bananas at Publix or Walmart and not buy 2 or 3
Ah Deedee (I did it)
SSSShhhhh (rare, but it's complete with finger at mouth)
Cookie (has dropped signing it)
Toodles (from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse)
Whew (complete with hand at head, this comes from Diego's Octapus episode)
Hmmm (with pointer finger at chin as if contemplating)
SIGN and VERBAL
I think the other big development would be we were watching A Christmas Story (he loves that movie) and it came to the part where Flick is stuck to the flag pole. The look on Duck's face was GREAT. His breathing got shallow and quick, like he might cry. His face was really sad and he looked at me, said some jibberish and I just replied, "I don't know you'll have to watch." And he turned back to the tv and waited for the good outcome. When that came, he got a big grin on his face.
Won't matter how many times Duck sees that movie, he'll do that every time now.
He'll get his shoes if told to do so (of course it's the Sponge Bob ones). I'm working on "get your shoes and take them to Daddy".
