Talvi has been in no particular rush to talk. She has no trouble making her wants and desires known with sign language. And with the 15 or 20 signs she knows, plus a much larger vocabulary of words she understands, we’ve mostly avoided major “I want that thing and you don’t understand what it is” meltdowns.

But of course, we’re eager to hear her voice. And so for the last few weeks, it’s been very exciting to hear her wander around experimented with “Da” and “Dada.” And then yesterday, she broke out “Mama” as well. We figure once she grasps how much more stuff she can ask for with verbal language, she’ll be full of words in no time.
