The little noises, screeches and sounds Ayla has been making are becoming more and more like words.
Sometimes it’s easy to think Ayla’s even blurted out a full sentence, and I swear I heard her say “I love you” the other day!
And now when she “talks” Ayla stares at me so intently it’s like we’re the only two people left in the world and she’s telling me important details on how we’re going to survive.
Even the neighbours commented about it! They asked if Ayla was talking yet because they thought they heard her calling out “Dad! Dad!” the other day… Which they probably did.
While Dad-dad and Mum-mum are still Ayla’s most preferred words, she’s been throwing in blub’s, bler’s and rar’s whenever she can.
What’s so amazing to me is that Ayla seems to know exactly what she’s saying.
To us it sounds like baby talk, but when I play back a video of Ayla talking and let her watch it, she gets so excited and proud of her efforts you’d think she’d just given a valedictory speech.
