At 15 months, Zi can say over 20 obvious words/prases such as: tatay mama Ate wow baby apple woof ewe uh-oh bop! uh-uh (to convey ‘no’..while shaking her head) up hi bye dede (filipino word to convey she wants to nurse) beep-beep yay milk (mih) there it is (tey-eh-ye) tito huh? shhh! cheese She also has a picture/word book given to her from tita cherms and she can use her pointer finger to show me where objects are if I ask her. For example, if I ask her where the fish is, she’ll point to its corresponding picture. She responds so well and can understand when I make requests. I can even ask her, “where’s my iPhone, Zi?” and she’ll grab it from the end of the room and give it to me. Promise, I never consciously taught her it was an iPhone.
