Itâ€™s the moment that Iâ€™ve been anticipating for over seven monthsâ€¦
This morning, Henry saidâ€¦
Sureâ€¦ He said to the cat, but Iâ€™m excited nevertheless. â€œMama!â€ escaped those little lips. I hope looking at me and saying it isnâ€™t too far behind. <3 Obviously, Mama pancakes were on the menu.
Enough though Henry has said â€œGaga,â€ â€œDada,â€ â€œBabaâ€ (what we call bottles), and now â€“ yay! â€“ â€œMama,â€ I donâ€™t really count those as real first words because heâ€™s just babblingâ€¦ not thinking about Lady Gaga, looking at Dad, wanting the bottle, or reaching for me when he says them. However, we work a lot on â€œdog,â€ and he did pet Maggie the other day and say, â€œDah!â€ Getting close. If anything, Iâ€™m thinking dog will be his first real word.
I often wonder if Henry thinks heâ€™s a dog or if the pets are babies, too. Iâ€™d love to get into that little nogginâ€™ and figure out whether he thinks Maggie is his big sister. He sure plays with her like sheâ€™s his sibling.
All in all, itâ€™s already an awesome day, and itâ€™s only 9:00 AM.
