This video was taken of Lizzie just before she turned 2. You can clearly she that she has no response when Greg tries to talk to her or get her attention even when he is very persistent. It is hard to remember exactly what would get her attention, but it would take either food, a video or a fun toy with lights. She had no interest in people. You will also notice her the screeching sounds she makes. At this time, Lizzie had no functional language. She would talk jibberish all day long, but would not say or repeat a word if asked to.

This is a video from our vacation to Destin when Lizzie was about 20 months old. Lizzie constantly flaps her arms. She keeps jumping off a ledge into shallow water and has no understanding of danger. She also has no desire to listen to my warnings or even acknowledge that I am talking to her or standing near her. At the very beginning of the video, you will see me hold my hands out for her to jump to me, and she completely doesn't even acknowledge me. She jumps the other way.
I am not thrilled about being in a swimsuit on video. If I had known what I know now, I would have lost a few pounds! But, I felt this was a really important video to show. Ah - the sacrifices of a mother. Just keep your eyes on Lizzie, and we will all stay happy.
