I think we've mentioned before that Avery can say her name now. It's really cute, and she is really proud of herself as always when she answers our question, "what is your name?" with "Avee, Avee, Avee!"
While I was in Texas this summer, my dad made letters for Avery's name to put on her wall. Of course I hung them up the second we got home. Everytime we walk in her room, we ask Avery where her name is, and she points to the letters. It's great.
Another trick she's learned is to crawl onto the couch, futon, chairs, whatever is there to crawl on. So, today we were playing in her room, and she crawled onto the futon. After a while, she turned around and looked up at her name...without any prompting, she pointed to it and said, "Avee!" then turned to look at me and clapped.
My little girl put two and two together..she is starting to connect things in her mind! I'm sure there are other examples that have happened before, but this one stands out to me as a first, and I'm a proud momma.
