Lipsmackin' and realizations!

I got a video of Shmonkey asking for Barney and smacking her lips. She was doing the lip thing all day today (well, both of them actually! hee hee) If you want to see it, go to:

Also, I found myself underestimating Mina's abilities? I saw her going through an older book of hers and pointing at things. It took a minute to dawn on me that the things she was pointing to were things I've pointed out to her periodically on walks or what have you. She has a "my little pony" that she just started playing with today(or rather shaking it by the hair!) and when I put in on her chair while she wasn't looking and asked her where her horse was, she turned, looked at it, and picked it up! It just amazed me as I have only referred to this toy as "horsey" a few times. She doesn't pick out animals or anything if you call them out, but obviously she figured out that it was a horse without any problem.
So....I guess I am saying that I've been shortchanging her by thinking she doesn't know certain things, and now I have to just act as though she does because she just may. DOH!!!! She IS a little smarty pants, and I just have to get that through my head and start "forgetting" she's delayed.
Bad Mommy! Bad!!!!

I'm guilty too. Sheena has started signing for food or a drink (happens to use the same sign for both), but a cynical part of me says its a coincidence.
