Not so much tricks, as more mad skills! Just the other morning after her morning nursing, Ava was lying on the boppy on my lap. Usually she shoves her fingers in her mouth and rambles on to the key of something like: "rea-rea-rea-rea" or "mnaw-mnaw-mnaw-mnaw" or "aya-aya-aya-aya." On this particular morning, she shocked us all with: "aaaada-da-da-da-da-da-da-da" and we haven't been able to keep her quiet since!
How fun it is to watch as she suddenly learns that the sounds she hears are actually coming from her mouth. She's made the da sound before; along with the ga- and ma- sounds, but this was the first time she figured out how to make a sound repeat.
