News from the home front (or Friday kid-blogging)

Wednesday Speck discovered consonants. That is, she went from sounds like "aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh" and "hah!" to distinct series of "dadada bababa," out of the blue. Some of the phrases even have a sort of conversational intonation. For some reason, this gives me the first sense of what she will sound like when she finally talks (tomorrow, or four months from now, whenever) -- will be amusing to watch the gradual progression from Chat Only She Understands to real words . . .

Meantime, the day passes mostly like this -- a series of things put into her mouth (plastic, wood, metal, cloth). All those advanced grabbing, reaching, and bending skills in service of turning the world into her chew toy. heh.
