Words from Bella's mouth take my breath away.  Here are few we caught on video.  She doesn't speak much unless asked (or coerced), however she can literally say any word.  I found her with some picture cards the other night.  She picked up each one and named them off without me prompting her:)  

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal for a 3.5 year old to say words like "ice cream" or name off shapes, but to us... her words are tiny miracles.  They fill Josh and I with hope and joy.

Love her.
