She said it... the 3 letter word!!

She said it, the word I've been waiting a long time to hear. I started playing a peg board game with Sienna to encourage speech. It goes a little something like this...

I put a peg up to my cheek and say a sound ex:baba
Rylee or a 2nd person will repeat the action and the sound
Then, Sienna takes the peg, holds it to her chin and repeats the sound
then puts the peg in the board!
Fantastic activity...just started it yesterday.
Today, when doing this activity, she repeated
Then for the first time, I thought I would try the 3 letter word...
I said it, Rylee said it and I couldn't believe my ears...
Sienna said it, as clear as day,
Of course, her father wanted me to try DAD
so I did and she did it,
We are so proud of her!
