A New Milestone

The other day at speech therapy Noah said, "I want the bears." In and of itself it's not a particularly amazing sentence for Noah, but considering that the jar of bears were about 6 feet away on a shelf it was pretty impressive, vision-wise. Not only that, but when the therapist said "What bears?" he showed off his newest developmental milestone, pointing.
I'm sure pointing is supposed to occur at a year old or so, but it's one of those milestones that Noah never really hit. Eventually our OT got Noah to point at big defined pictures in a book and declared it met, but he was never able to point at things that he couldn't touch (because if he couldn't touch it he couldn't see it). Hooray for glasses!
