Elaine has been stringing words together to form primitive, un-prompted sentences. For example:
She makes the CUTEST face I have ever seen when you ask for kisses - sticks out her lower lip, juts out her jaw, leans towards you with this grumpy little look but her eyes are smiling buckets of impish good will. I've got to get a video before she grows up and it's lost forever. I love my expressive little girl.
