consonent sounds


i know i've blogged about this before but babycenter.com sends me weekly updates about where my baby might be developmentally. there have been many times when i'm saying to tim, "i wonder if this is normal?" in regards to ben doing something and then the babycenter email comes and talks about exactly what i was just worrying about. it's been a great mom tool. last week, i got ben's 6 month 3 weeks email. they said that babies this age say a consonent/vowel sound over and over - like ma ma ma or ba ba ba. this is their beginning to make words. i said to tim, "ben's not making consonent sounds - he just squeals." well ben must have gotten the memo because a couple days later, he started saying "gu, gu, gu" (short u sound like in up) over and over. when you say it back to him, he gets really excited and says it more. gu gu gu. that's all i've heard since he woke up this morning. i'm really enjoying it. just think...the beginnings of talk. crazy.
ben helps me make muffins using my quick chef. he was pretty keen on rolling that honeydew.

Augh. I'm so sad to be so far away. I want to come home and make muffins with you and kiss Ben. Oh I just love that little guy.

I think the 'gu gu gu' you're talking about was really, "I want to go to grandma's house"...
