‘High Five!’

She did it again.

Last night when I got home (it was after Lily had gone to sleep) the nanny told me that Lily did a few really amazing things when she got home from school.

1. Shamekia (her nanny) was reading her ‘Brown Bear’ and using the Tobii/PODD to communicate with Lily when reading to her.  When it got to the page ‘I see the children looking at me’, Shamekia said, ‘I see the….’ and Lily finished her sentence by pointing correctly on her Tobii to a photo of children!  Unprompted.

2. The other thing Shamekia does is ask Lily for a ‘high five’ after they read a page in the book.  Well, last night Shamekia mistakenly said ‘Say high five’ instead of ‘Give me high five’.  Well my supposedly nonverbal child called out – clear as day – ‘High Five!’  She’s just so literal.

Shamekia is usually unflappable.  But she told me that she even teared up when Lily spoke to her!
