Natalie is a great babbler and she knows a few words. Mostly, though, she communicates with gestures. And she's getting really effective with it.

Pointing at food she wants to eat. Shaking her head and pushing away when she's not interested. Waving a book at me to take, and then pulling herself up on the chair until I put her in my lap for story time.

She frequently demands that I read to her. On the one hand, I love the fact that she enjoys books, and spending time reading to my daughter is very special. On the other hand, some of the writing in these childrens' books is just awful. Time to purge our library and bring in the classics.
