In the meantime, two of my sisters left yesterday after a 3 week long visit. It was great to have them around and Penny just LOVED them. She hadn't seen them since October and November and this time she could say their names and call out for them when she wanted them. This also means that now that they are gone, she is still calling out for them and breaking my heart! But, we had a great visit and they really got to see her change a lot in the last 3 weeks. She went from taking steps to exclusively walking while they were here, and she also learned lots of new words (one of them being "no")!
I will be posting more specific things this week. I hope to really stick with it this time! :)
