When our daughter first started to verbalize word parts, her cries took on a new character. She would say little snippets of vowels "de de ble de de ble ble," that kindof sounded like a disenchanted muttering and stuttering. It was interesting enough that I made a video of her when she first started to do it. The video also featured her rolling onto her back. Little did we know, that she would love the video. One day, when she was crying, Melissa showed her the video (she likes the computer screen), and she was entranced with what the baby in the computer had to say. Now, when she is crying, there is a decent chance that we show her the video. She loves the video, and can totally relate to what that baby is saying and it helps calm her down.
