Daisy’s first sentence

The other news of yesterday, was that I’m pretty sure Daisy used a sentence. It wasn’t quite a real sentence, technically – it lacked a verb, unless an impied verb is sufficient. Nevertheless, she very distinctly pointed at me, and said “Mummy there!”, as if expressing a surprise discovery. It may well have been a surprise discovery, actually, since she’d just come out of the living room, and seen me. In any case, it was accompanied by pointing at where I was, rather than where I ought to be, so I’m interpreting it as an observation, rather than an instruction.

I love understanding her – I get a real kick out of it. We don’t always like what we say to each other, but we CAN communicate.
