It is very amusing when she acts out what she is trying to tell you. Sierra is very determined to make you understand what she has said, if you don't repeat it back the right way she gets very upset. What's entertaining is how she tells you, the combination of talking, signing, charades, pointing and even singing to make us understand what she is saying. I have many times pretended to understand her to prevent her from getting frustrated, but she insists on repeating the actions until you repeat back what she has said, that I can't get away with it.

I wonder if it is her personality that makes her so entertaining or is it the autism? Is it a little of both? I don't know if she would be so fun to watch if she could talk normal or maybe she is very comical naturally and would find other ways to amuse us. She does come from a family of amusing people.
