I think Penny is trying to say "mama" but it's coming out "baba." It's amazing how in the last week alone she is talking so differently. She is clearly trying desperately to say words and phrases. So far the only thing that has come out clearly enough for us to call it her first word has been "ball" -- referring to a ball. But I swear she's getting close with words like bubbles, splash, dogs, cup, and... mama (baba). And she says "yeah" to pretty much any question you ask her. This is so fun!! I can't wait to write the one-year-old update in two and a half weeks!
