Of all her words, which are now too numerous to count and solidly in two languages, "Whoa," is by far my favorite. She uses it liberally, whether she's just pressed a button to change the color of her turtle light, or Momma just scooped a big pile of berries onto her plate. The best is when it's accompanied by an eyes wide expression and an open mouthed gape- unadulterated happiness with the magical power to instantly obliterate all cynicism within a half-mile radius. Sometimes she'll even point at the source of her baby-joy. Yes, that is the absolute best and I love it.
