Sounds of the Wild

Riley's been practicing with new sounds since she could make a peep. It's always fun and entertaining when she figures out something new. Recently, she's been playing with consonants. At any given point in the day, you can hear her stringing along Ma-ma-ma-ma's or Puh-puh-puh's or even d-d-d-d-d's. This morning Ian called her Riley "Machine Gun" Kaden because of the stuttering sounds she was making. 

Well, this week, her new thing is O-sounds. She's moved on to Whoa-whoa-whooOOoOOOoooOoo's with an almost wailing like quality to them. It's a haunting sound, especially when she does it in almost a whisper. We went walking at the mall with some other girls (By the way, it snowed for about 5 minutes while we there!), and she whoa-ed practically the whole time. It was funny. This morning, she's started with go-go-go's. 

What a funny kid!
