Daphne and her daddy have been working on the word, "shoe". She finally got it about a week ago, and now she has an incredible respect for shoes because she can communicate about them.
Every time she sees a shoe, she points to it and says, "shoe." This included when we were in a store that had shoes, and often it is necessary for her to pull the shoes off the shelf and try to put them on herself.
I have a confession to make. I take her shoes off and leave them on the floor so I can hear her say the word, "shoe" when she sees them. I love being a mommy!
