Izzie has been saying her first word. It's Doggy. She says it sort of like dig-ee. Anytime Ripley walks by she gets really excited, points and says dig-ee over and over. Maddie might be saying it too, but it isn't as clear. My mom said yesterday that Izzie was saying kee-kee for kitty. This morning she was singing E-I-E-I-O with me when we sang Old Mc Donald. Soon, they will be jabbering away. I know Izzie is very motivated to talk. When she can't get her point across she gets very mad. She balls up her fists and lets out a little scream of frustration. The look on her face is like, "MOM! I'm TRYING to explain it!" I know the girl wants to talk!
