Mia's Uncle Paul has taught her a new game that she can't get enough of. We have these cards that spell three letter words, like pig, cat, cow, boy, etc. Well, not etc, but you know. Anyway, when you put them in the correct order it has a picture of the word. The other day, her Uncle was over playing with her and he decided to mix up the words and say what it was, like igp, or gip...she thought that was so funny. Eventually they'd get to the right word, but there were so many giggles, it was too cute.

Thinking about that, and how one of our prayer requests when she turned 3 was for more speech this year, I'm pleased to say she has been attempting to speak more. She will now try to say whatever we are saying and she'll repeat the correct amount of syllables, but she can't say it correctly. So, as I was praying the other night, it hit me that we should pray for the sounds she can't say correctly, not just for more speech. So, I'm going to list a bunch of letters and if you are thinking about it, I'd love for you to pray for one of those sounds for her. There are quite a few and I thought that if you just pick one or two (or however many you choose), that it would be neat to see her learn these sounds, if that's God's desire for her.

Here is the list.

C, G, J, K, L, Q, R, V, W, X, Z

The other sounds she does a fairly good job with them, some of the vowels, she can only say the short sound, not the long sound, but those letters above are the ones that we have a very difficult time with.

I'm so grateful for how many of you pray for her and I'd love for her to be able to express herself better. Thank you for praying!!!

Most of those are the hard sounds to learn. She is so beautiful and is doing so well. It's fun to see prayers answered. I have a purple post it by my computer to remind of specific prayers. Would love to see her on the horse.
