Milestone: Saying Mama

I have something to admit, I’ve read very few parenting/baby books. I’ve attempted to and then I get distracted by something shiny in the corner. I kind of figure things will happen when they happen and if I have questions, I can look them up or ask the pediatrician. Because of this, I’m not really sure when certain milestones are supposed to occur so last week when Beck and I were crafting I was surprised to hear his chatter turn into a recognizable word – mama.

I may have started crying then called anybody I could think of who would care. Yes, it was very much a first child thing of me to do and I know he doesn’t know that he’s actually saying a word but that didn’t stop my heart from swelling with joy. It really is the sweetest sound in the world.

I think my husband is ready for him to start saying dada now!
