A week ago, I was incoherently babbly---lots of fumbling sounds that didn't have any pattern or intention. I would just shriek and then laugh and then flap my lips around and laugh some more. A few days ago, something clicked and I started saying one "word" over and over, with intention and rhythm: "blah, blah, blah, blah, etc." I say it in a constant stream that goes on forever, and sometimes will stop speaking, but will silently move my lips in the same way, in endless repetition. I am no longer a random babbler!
