Harper is just beginning to say more than one word sentences. This makes her a lot more fun to be around and she definitely enjoys the increased communication skills. For the most part, she still doesn't do more than one word at a time - usually it is just one word demands like "downstairs" or "thirsty." When she does put together a few words it brings about a surprisingly good feeling, even if what she is asking for usually isn't quite as great. It reminds you that you aren't dealing with a puppy and that you have a real little person in your midst. Today at the park, when Erica told Harper that it was time to go home to eat a sandwich for lunch Harper replied, NO! WANTY SNACKS! According to Erica, when they got home Harper ate the sandwich (almond butter and jelly - which is its own precious miracle).
