Brooklyn has begun to say words - even repeat them once you say them. With her own special flair, of course. Dogs are "dog-dog!!", Luna the cat is "ka-Ka!" She can now say Da-dee, Momma, Way-Way (for Aunt Rachel or Aunt Ra-Ra). This brings Rachel no small degree of pleasure as she is the first person whose name Brooklyn has spoken (other than me and Kyle). Brooklyn just LOVES her Aunt Rachel. She sees Rachel and Josh most of all, and she ADORES them both.
