Conversations with Aliana, 21 Months

February 22, 2013

Ali’s learning about the ocean and the animals that live in it at “school.” This was our dinner conversation last night:

Me: so, Aliana, what did you learn about the ocean today?
Aliana: ummmm….
Me: can you tell me what lives in the ocean? (Makes ALS sign for fish)
Aliana: fish!
Me: what else? What about dolphins?
Aliana: yeah, dolphins!
Me: what do dolphins say, how do they speak?
Aliana: (after thinking for a moment) “hi! Hi! Hi!” (Waves her hand in the air)
