My daughter does da-da
Hurrah! Amelia started proper babbling this week, with unmistakeable "Da-da-da"s all over the place. I had forgotten how rewarding and explodingly gorgeous it is to hear intentional and articulate sounds coming from someone who previously only farted, grunted, coughed and wailed her bedroom walls down.
As far as her vocabulary goes, we all know that an alveolar plosive is simpler to form for a 7-month-old than a bilabial nasal, right? In other words, 'da-da' more easy than 'ma-ma'. So there are still good things to come. Are you still reading this?
