What's my name?

Baby J can say MAMA and I am SO happy. It's the cutest thing ever. My heart melts every time I hear him say it even though he doesn't quite get that it's me, but we're working on it.

We left Baby J with J's parents for an hour on the weekend and came home to a happy, smiley baby, who would say MAMA and DADA when asked. "Hey Baby J, dada." "DADA!" "Mama?" "MAMA!"

The way home that night, he practiced saying mama in the car until he fell asleep. I sat with a goofy smile on my face.

It's incredible how such a small thing makes me feel so big, so proud, like I've done something so right. It's hard to describe, but in a way, I feel like I became a mom all over again.


  1. It's so great when they say Mama for the first time. My kids still call me Mama sometimes and I love it. Makes my heart melt and how lucky are we to be the mama's of these little ones!

  2. Amazing!! Love the goofy smile on your face. Yay for Baby J!
