Ah-roo-oo-oo, too

Emma is growing so fast, it's difficult for her wardrobe to keep up with her. She just turned three months last week, and we're already packing up the 3-6 month clothes in favor of the 6-9 month. Now the red dress that Meng and I thought she might be able to wear for Christmas might be too small for Thanksgiving!

Also in recent developments, Emma is talking in full sentences. Of course, we have no idea what she is actually saying, but she is very articulate in her "ang-woo-roo-roo's" and "ha-ah-la-ha's."

In all seriousness, we really did spend the better part of our interaction today simply talking. I would tell her what I was doing, what we were going to do, or what someone else was doing. She would watch me, or the other person involved, smile, and say something similar to, "ah-wa-loo." I realize that they aren't actually words, but it is definitely the first step to communication, and I'm excited. I mean, she understands that we take turns making noises, and she seems to get rather frustrated when she can't get her point across. She is also catching on to that her name is Emma, that I am "Mommy" and that Meng is "Daddy."

The best part is when we look at her and say, "I love you." I almost think in her own way she understands, because she always smiles really big and says, "ah-roo-oo-oo."


  1. She definitely seen to understand certain things. There are times when we are "talking" and she just seem really frustrated I'm not giving the correct responses. Other times, I'll reply with "I love you!" and she'll break out in the biggest smile as if saying that's exactly what I wanted you to say.

  2. cause she's the best baby ever! Miss you all, and will see you next week.

  3. I'm sure she understands! Never stop telling her how much you love her. It's great you started now. Keep it up for her whole life.
