He said what?

I have been playing for months with Wysdom trying to get him to say mama. Dada was his first word and I expected that, because that is what most children say first. So I have been mouthing the words to him, saying it with my mouth on his cheek so he feels the vibrations. He always smiles at this.

This week though I got a big surprise, when I was in the kitchen cooking. He yelled out Maaaaam!! It wasn't a quiet little maaam. It was a strong yell. At the time he was getting fussy and he sure did let me know that he wanted me. It was nice because my mom was with me to, so she got to hear it for the first time as well. All I can say is that I am so totally overjoyed and proud of my little boy.

Isn't that a great sound to hear? Lillian does it often in her crib...it's a soft "mama" coming out of her mouth. I love it!
