4th Birthday Photo Session
Saturday, July 9, 2011
Today, in Andi Bean jibberish fashion, she uttered throughout the day, "Mamamamamammaa" I used praise, clapping, all the things to instill a positive response. Everytime I asked her to call me "MaMa", she uttered, "da da". Defeated. I regrouped, and pressed on. She still hasn't made the difference between "Dad" and everything being "dada" or "dogga" ... but for a kid who is hearing deficient... without her aid in 99.8% of the time... to hear her babble a new consonant, 'M' is huge in my book. In addition to "MaMa" there's important words like "Maddux" to master! Andi is so in love with the dog "dogga" that she gets super excited when he is near - to the celebrity level of David Beckham, and he gets a bit nervous. The "M"anic is sound asleep with her dog-pacie (froggie's substitute). Tomorrow, we continue to work on the correlation between 'mammaama' and 'MaMa' ... all in due time.
