It's official! Zari has said her first word: papa. Eric claims it's because she loves him best. I think it's because she is with me most of the day, and I talk to her a lot. In any case, it's pretty cute.
Of course, she has been communicating for a while now via sign language. Her current vocabulary consists of: nurse, water, food/eat, ball, bye & hello, dog, cat, fish, bird, potty, papa, shower, and shoes.
