...normal! It's absolutely amazing. She says mama, dada, hey, bye bye, up, and she is starting to imitate sounds. If I say, "a duck," she says, "a duh!" She KNOWS what up means, and uses that one all the time. lol
She's taking 5-7 steps at times, and her nurse told me any day she'd be walking. She into everything already so I can't wait.
She also helps dress herself! Pushes her arms through the sleeves, and switches toys from one hand to the other to get both arms in the shirt.
This is all so much fun! Even as needy as she is. lol My last was so perfect and laid back.
Robby isn't saying much yet (I assume partly because he's learning Spanish all day at his babysitter and English all night for me, so sorting it out is taking longer and partly because I am an old lady and an introvert and sometimes I forget to talk to him, lol); he does respond to requests like "Come on!" and "Can mama have it?"). I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when he switches hands for me so I can get him dressed. I keep telling my DH all these amazing things that are so sweet, and he just isn't in awe like I am, lol. Robby learned to climb off the sofa the other day and I was clapping and cheering, and now every time he does it, he looks at me so I can cheer again. I love this age.
Allegra isn't saying much yet besides "uh-oh" but I'm hoping it's just because she's being raised bilingually. She can walk across the room but she doesn't have a huge interest in walking yet. Loves to climb though, which is quite nerve wracking, especially because she doesn't know how to get off the couch and bed properly yet!
