Kinsey can now start to distinguish words when we say them to her. For example, if her stuffed bear and the kitty are both in the same room, and we ask her where one of them is, she will go to it. Right now, that's all that I'm sure of her being able to know what the words are, but there are probably others. Of course as I mentioned before if we ask her to clap she will usually do it on command. She is also starting to splash in the tub when we say splash. Common words I think she would start to pick up on soon would be doggie, bath, book, and bottle. Our babysitter swears she can say "Oscar", which is their dog's name, but I have yet to hear it! She commonly says "aah-ti" at various things. At first I thought it was "kitty", but then she says it lots of times at other things too.
She is now able to stand without leaning or holding on to anything. She can even take a few steps on her own with lots of prompting from us. I think she'll be fully walking by the next blog post.
