Sophia's new words: Just some examples

At the center:

Sophia is lounging on my lap. Vishnu strolls over to say hello

Sophia: Anna

Vishnu: She is saying Anna

Niharika comes over

Me: Sophia, this is akka. Can you say Akka

Sophia: bua bua bua bua

Husband: Mummy is in the bathroom, she will come right mow

Husband: Yes, mummy has two blue spots on her palm. How many blue spots?

Sophia: too bilue
