Being married for 21/2 years has taught me something about communication. You have to have it if you want to get your point across. If you don't get your point across, anger will ensue and in the Turner house, you don't want to go there. Seems in your almost 15 months of life, you too have learned a little something about communication. 
You talk all the time. Some real words used properly, some jibber jabber meant to be words that we just don't understand, and some plain jibber jabber. You mimic and read lips constantly. Today while you were eating lunch I asked you, "are you watching the microwave?" Then you whispered, "microwave." Not even in baby speak but straight up. Especially when we are singing (a few weeks ago happy birthday, lately Itsy Bitsy), you will stare us down and move your lips. The wheels that must be turnin'! 
Your favorite song is Itsy Bitsy Spider. Want to know how I know? You make the spider and move your arms up! No lie (got it on video, what what!). When you hear a song with even the tune or if I ask you if you want to sing a song, you put your chunky little fingers together and move your hands up. We are working on the rest of the hand movements too. 
You have great communication when it comes to getting what you want. Just in the past few days, you will walk around with your arm up and seem upset, when I take the time to look at what you are pointing at, it will be a sippy (sometimes a pacifier). Tonight, you wanted to play a new game my great grandpa played with me; clap hands, clap hands, oops! (I clap your face). You love it and sometimes when you'd put your hands together, I was thinking you wanted to sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider. You shook your head and got sad until I started the clap hands game. 
I am glad you are starting to really be able to communicate with us but I am scared because I know full sentences are right around the corner. Stop growing up so fast!

Love you little love,
