It’s not all bad though. On a positive note wee Rosie is starting talk. And sing! She has the song ‘row, row, row your boat’ stuck in her head and is often to be seen rocking back and forward saying Rarrr, Rarrr, Rarrrr Barrr’, which is really rather sweet.
She is also saying a few words. She won’t say them on demand, but comes out with them when it suits her. She said her biggest brothers name today quite plainly whilst pointing at him. Needless to say, he was totally delighted. It is lovely that she has the two teenage siblings. They are like mini parents to her.
Tarja wanted to give Rosie a sweet after her dinner. She said ‘do you want a sweetie’ and Rosie plainly answered ‘sweetie’ with a big smile! Quite a tricky word too, don’t you think? Other words she’s coming out with are ‘bikkit’ (biscuit), ‘boiya’ (bottle), and bye bye. There’s nothing that makes us all smile as much as when she says a new word. It’s just heavenly! Tarja also taught her to point with her two fore fingers and say ‘Yo’!!!
