It's been confirmed...


Marlo's brilliant. Yesterday she had her 16 month checkup and her Dr. asked how many words she knows. I guessed about a dozen. He said that was very advanced...five or six is normal.
So last night I made a list of her words and I came up with 32! That doesn't count the words she "knows"... i.e. when I ask her to point to a giraffe or she follows a command. I'm tempted to post the list, because this is how I keep a record, but I won't torture you.
I just have them written down on a sheet a paper...it will be fun to look at years down the road.
As for the appointment, Marlo was a champ and didn't fuss or squirm until the very end when she got her three shots. She's in the 85th percentile for height and weight, with a head circumference in the 90th. (To make room for that big brain.)
