We are still struggling a little with Bee's words that sound similar, like 'bed', 'ball' and 'boat' and she can get very frustrated when we don't understand her. We get around it by pointing and letting Bee answer 'yes' or 'no'. It's not a perfect system but it's working for now and 31 words is a huge achievement.
