Aaron doesn't speak. Well, he says "Bye bye" when he shuts a door on you or when someone's leaving and he does that Baby Babble he's done most of his life, but he's not one of those Verbal Prodigies with an arsenal of words on his tongue by the time he turns one.
He knows a couple of signs and he points to things he wants and he pushes away things he does not want. If you ask him a question "Whoooo" is yes and "Uh uh uh uh" is no. That's what we've got to work with here.

BUT, Aaron's ability to comprehend is amazing, at least to me. Say "It's time for dinner" and he goes to his high chair. "Do you want a snack?" and he goes to the kitchen. "It's bottle time" and he goes to the rocking chair. "Daddy's home" and he RUNS to the top of the stairs and holds on to the baby gate while bouncing. When Daddy walks through that door at the bottom of those stairs he goes crazy. He squeals and claps and jumps up and down.

Tell Aaron it's Night Night time and he takes off to his bedroom. Ask him to bring you a specific toy and he will. Tell him to go to a specific room in the house and off he goes.
He is still such a happy, fun kid! We can't believe he'll be one tomorrow, but we are loving every minute.

Cilla has a limited vocab, too. She call EVERYTHING mama! It drives Flint crazy. But, if you ask her about names or animals or certain items she fully understands and can point them out!
