8 Weeks, 5 Days: Words, Words, Words!

Sarra's vocabulary is really picking up steam. Her big "word" is agoo. We're not sure what it means, but she says it a lot.

She also says what sounds like "Hello," "No," and one day she said "Ah lah oo" three or four times in one sitting. We replied, "I love you too."

Tonight she just say, "Ah boo boo." It was the first time I'd heard a "b" from her. She loves to watch our mouths as we talk. We've also started reading to her this week, as she has been sitting still long enough to look at the pictures and listen. Her (our) favorite book is called "Splish Splash Baby Bundt: A Recipe for Bath Time," that Melissa and Curtis Shaw gave her for her shower.

Her Soprano Squeal is also in full force. I hope it doesn't mean she's in pain.

She got her 2 month shots yesterday and handled them like a champ. Cried like crazy in the doctor's office but once we got the car running, she was fine. Slept all day and has been pretty active today. Lots of tummy time. Making lots of conversation.

Spitting up an awful lot, too, the last week or so. Which I just hate. She wasn't a spitter-upper for the first month or so, but she's making up for lost time.

We're packing up the house now to put everything into storage for a while until a permanent living situation comes available.

7 Weeks, 4 days: "MA!"

All week, Sarra's been babbling and making new sounds a lot and it cracks me up. Two nights ago she was on the changing table and she made a little yippy "bark" sound. And she smacked her lips so loudly, she startled herself. And this week she has started saying "Ma!" when she's crying for food (in addition to the standard "Neh") which is truly freaky. I don't think she's calling to or for me, per se, but it makes me wonder if "Ma" is a natural sound for babies to say in relation to hunger, which stands to reason.

Makes me almost wish Sarra had a twin!
