That's what "ball" translates into in baby-speak, right?
Yeppers, she said ball! It was Rose's second word ("Dada" was first, though for the longest time I insisted that it was "Mama" based on the "mmmmmmmmm" she hummed one afternoon...). Ball was also MY first word as a baby. She may have all her daddy's looks, but there's a little bit of mama in my Alice somewhere!
