Maybe a Ma?
Nolan was crying last night, and I swear I heard a "Maaaa!" in the cry. The beginning of babble? We shall see!
In the meantime, he gets to chew on his super-yummy flavored tongue depressors, the ultimate reward for him in speech therapy. Nothing can get him to open his mouth in an "aahhh" shape like holding up a piece of cherry flavored wood! Now we just need to get some voluntary sound out of him. He often won't verbalize at all during therapy, and saves his squeals and "AAAAHHH" noises for an hour in which the rest of us would like to be in bed. Kids are strange, strange creatures!
