At the moment, everyone is "Mama" and everything gets a "wow!" but I don't care, my little baby is growing up and these "words" (if you can call them that!) have taken me completely off guard!!
Ava too started to say her first words at 9 months, so really I should've expected it, but still I'm not sure how I feel about my baby girl getting all vocal... I'd be quite happy for her to stay a gurgling, gaga-ing baby just a little bit longer. I am enjoying her so much; she is such a delight to us and is just such a fun-loving, happy little girl. I am so thankful that she will never remember the dark days of this year.
Tonight I put her in her cot while I read Ava her bedtime story and she started pulling herself up by the cot bars and dropping back down on her bum with a thump. On repeat. She just thought it was the most hilarious thing ever and was giggling to herself so much that Ava's bed time story was a lost cause!
These little sunshine moments are the ones I cherish and store up for the hard days when I feel surrounded by big decisions and medication and medical notes.
These precious little "wow" moments that a "Mama" never forgets.
Seems her first words are fairly fitting!
