      Hi, our Isabella is 5 and at this point she only says
      bye-bye, baby and mama. She doesn't say them
      spontaneously only with prompting, but I hope she
      eventually will say them without the prompt. She gets
      OT, PT and speech at her school and they go over
      vocabulary words with her. She understands so much
      more then she can say. If you say "look behind you" or
      "go pick up your toy" or whatever she responds
      correctly. She also babbles like crazy, makes lots of
      squeals and noises. Seems more vocal lately then she
      did before. She laughs and giggles all the time, often
      inappropriately to the situation. She walks on her own
      and learned to walk at about the usual time, but her
      gait is odd and not always quite steady, like going up
      a step or down a step can trip her up, or sometimes
      she just trips over her own feet. Isabella used to
      bite and pinch especially when she was excited and we
      did firmly over and over tell her to stop and she is
      much better about it. They also reinforce all that at
      her school. Susan
