I came home from work last night and Lonan greeted me with a hearty "dyua bwah nyaaaaaaahhha duyaua." Until yesterday his vocalizations had been limited pretty much to squeals and squeeks and shrieks. Even Leo was babbling at 6 months so we asked Dr. Anne about it at our 9 month checkup. She said that if he wasn't babbling by his 1st birthday we should have his hearing checked (he hears fine, trust me) and that with some babies the babbling just switches on overnight. That, apparently, is our baby. He hasn't stopped talking since.
