This is Akasha's favorite word. It started out sounding more like "oof", and was always in relation to Kona, so I was pretty sure she was making a little barking sound - so cute! It somehow evolved into "boof" and has stayed like that. And now she says it to everything! Apparently cats, birds and anything that looks remotely like an animal all say "boof". Whenever she sees a real animal, a picture or a stuffed animal, this is the greeting they all receive. It is usually the first sound she makes when she wakes up, and she often makes it as she is drifting off to sleep. One time I thought she was waking back up as she turned on her back and uttered a little "boof", but she was really just slipping into sleepyland with a little farewell summary to her day I guess.
