My best friend Alison's son, Ian, was calling a ball a "baaaa" last spring when we saw them and it didn't take too long for miss Addie to jump right on the vocabulary band wagon. Pretty much anything round constitues as a "baaaaa." This includes apples or melons at the grocery store too. This purple ball is just as big as she is and she loves it. She has a pink princess ball and the ever-popular red whiffle ball. Highly entertaining--for Addie too.
