Ivy's obsession with blowing raspberries began at my cousin's wedding when Carolina introduced her to them. Ivy copied Carolina's face but couldn't figure out how to make the sound yet. The next week she practised, and practised, and did pretty much nothing other than blow raspberries! It was her sole form of communication and she would blow them at me desperately until I responded with a raspberry, a huge grin spreading across her face.
In this video Ivy expresses her readiness for bed through the medium of raspberry blowing.
Raspberry blowing is still an important part of Ivy's vocabulary :)
