The Sweetest Word
When I think about moments I am looking forward too in parenting a little boy a few come to mind. I really like the rubber boot fetish stage as well as the need to carry a dinky car/train/tractor everywhere I go phase. I am looking forward to walking when he can hold my hand (if I'm lucky)and to his first haircut. Most of all though I couldn't wait for him to say "Mama". Well to my complete surprise since he is just 7 months he said it on the weekend. I thought it was just a fluke since he babbles a lot but he reached out to me and said "Mama" very clearly. Since then he has continued to say it purposfully and says it in his bed in the morning when he wants me to come get him- "Mamamammama" Music to my ears, it makes me melt!! If possible he just wound me tighter around his baby finger!
