First words

Today, Maddy spoke her first clear words. She "talks" all the time, of course (but nothing discernible), and signs in sentences. She'll give you an indication yes and no, but until now, nothing audible words we could be sure about. Sometimes she would say something that sounds like a word, but wouldn't repeat it, so it was unclear if she really said anything in particular.

At lunch today, Maddy was giving Momma some little pretzels, one after another. Momma would say "Thank you" each time, and before long Maddy was saying it too. So they went through a lot of pretzels. "Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!"
