I don't want to exaggerate how much she says. She says her own name. She says "bye" sometimes. She will point to me and say "daddy", and to her mother and say "mummy", but won't identify other relatives in that way. She can identify the characters from Winnie the Pooh, and from In the Night Garden..., and the Teletubbies, but not from the other programmes which she watches. And she says "go to s'eep" at bedtime.
She is eight years old. We have waited a long time to get this far, and who knows where her journey will take her, but we take pleasure in what we have got.
