Maggie says " mama" !!

Last Friday, Maggie looked at me and said "mama" when I gave her a sippy cup of juice.  Then on Saturday, she did it again.  I tried not to get my hopes up, because she has said other words before and then never again.  But, she has never called me mama.
Then today, she reached up her arms to me and said " mama - mama" very clear and plain !! Oh my goodness - the world stopped for a second !  Maggie is talking and her first words are mama - mama !!
All day today, she has reached for me and said "mama" and she cried after her bath and wanted "mama".

Kath,

I am so sooooo very excited for you! There is nothing like hearing those words from your babe's mouth. She is too cute for words!

I pray that she will continue to share all of those lovely words with you and yours.

The first time they say I love you is just amazing! In Jon Jon's words " I wuv you!"

Hugs,

I remember the exact moment Tess said mama, this summer on the couch, she just looked at me and said it, patting my chest. It was 2 months shy of her 3rd bday. HUGE deal. HUGE tears (from me) It is a big stepping stone for our delayed speech kiddos!
And have I mentioned how really gorgeous that girl is? She is!
