She Calls Me "Mama"

Sophia's language skills are minimal.  We were told that she had receptive skills in Chinese, but was not producing any words yet.  Now we have switched her primary language.  Over the last six weeks, she has slowly begun to "talk".  While we usually have no idea what she is saying, it often sounds like she is singing, or reprimanding, or just shouting happily.  We have worked with her on words such as "Dada" and "Mama" while pointing to ourselves, but we were never sure if she equated the word with the correct person.  Today, however, while at a friend's house, Sophia crawled towards me saying, "Mama, Mama".  I'm so glad my friend was there as my witness...what a joy it was to here my baby girl calling my name!


Watch out world...Sophia's speech is on its way, and once she starts, I'm not sure that she will stop!

How beautiful!!! So happy for you. We all can't wait to meet Sophia. It was so cute, one of the first things Micah said to me when he arrived this week to Iquique was, "Did you know that Aunt Terri has a new little girl? And her name is Sophia?" I assured him that we did! :)
