Ava loves cucumber and dip. She ate all the cucumber on her own plate (about 1/4 of a rather large cucumber). Then she eyed Michael's plate and asked if she could have his cucumber. He had already decided that he wasn't going to eat his, so he gave his cucumber to Ava. That quickly disappeared too. At this point, the girl had consumed half a cucumber.

She looked down rather pitifully at her plate and said, "No more on Ava's blue plate!" Six!! That's a six word sentence from the same little girl who had only three words in her entire vocabulary four and a half months ago. I'm practically speechless myself in awe and gratitude. (Standard disclaimer: No, that sentence was not pronounced "correctly" with every sound present, but all the words were there and I could understand them.)
