Baby Talk

Can I just tell you something today, and then a whole lot more tomorrow? Well, I'm going to regardless. My son, he's 9.5 months now, and over the course of the weekend, he started regularly saying "mama"...with meaning attached...yup (**gulp**). He's been a little sick recently, his first major illness. There's been a number of stomach issues, and he's feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole situation. Who can blame the lil' fella? He's not feeling well, and this vomiting thing is new, and rather uncomfortable. Well, somehow in the midst of his confusion and frustration, baby boy figured out that "mama" was able to make it better if only he would ask (or demand, but he's saying "mama" so I really don't care in what perturbed fashion the word is coming out). Still…my…beating…heart. Not that I'm going to ignore the little man when he's screaming in the middle of the night from his multiple digestive issues, but when he called for mama, well, I scooped him and up and cried. Which may have not been the best idea for a sick little boy, but I digress - he called for his mama! 

Oh, and being egalitarian and all, I should point out that while his dad was suffering through a bout of the same illness, baby boy also mastered the art of the two syllable version of "dada", whilst clearly motioning for his father. This follows up on weeks of "dadadadadada" referring from everything from his foot to cars whizzing by us. Our baby boy is growing up - he's talking, folks! This was a post-worthy weekend for us.

(Yes, this post was titled quite literally. God love ya for sticking with me if you were looking for something else. That something else will happen, and soon.)

We knew our godson was not only the cutest 9.5 month year old, but he now appears to be one of the smartest.
