Our Little Fruit

Filed under: Pictures — Steph @ 5:21 pm

For about the last month Mara constantly asks for “nanas” her favorite fruit it seems. She learned from her Einstein DVD how to sign for it and for the first two weeks of her doing it we didn’t seem to catch on to what she was doing. Luke figured it out and now we know when she starts simulating peeling her finger and saying “nana” she wants one. She is just starting to understand there is a “b” in front of “nanas” but doesn’t always use it. If so it sounds like an emphatic “b” followed by “nanas”

  1. She’s adorable! I’m really enjoying watching her grow–as for production of the “b” in bannana–you can help her by holding her hands to your lips and voice box as you model it for her–then she can see it as well as hear and see it (the speech consult is free!) Pat

  2. Sounds like she’s influencing the world one syllable at a time! What a cutie! Good advice from Pat- she must be a fellow Speech Pathologist.
