In 2011 we went to Disney World for the first time and my mom bought this ornament for Rosie.
Rosie has always been a careful person. She takes her time to observe and study something before trying it. She has always been the type of person who would rather get something right the first time. She's a bit of a perfectionist.
I think that's why she took so long to finally walk. Talking was no different. She was excellent at communicating. She used sign language let us know what she wanted and she was very selective with we words.
While it seemed at the time like she was taking a while to talk, we now know she was just taking her time to observe and figure it out.
When she finally did start taking she was talking full sentences.
Her first sentence was about this ornament. She walked up to it. Pointed and said " Nana gave me that."
This ornament will always be special because it was what prompted Rosie's first of many sentences.
