OK OK....so I know there will be a lot of nonbelievers out there but here is what happened!!! I know know....Kaylen is not even 5 1/2 months old...but I have been trying to teach her sounds and she is doing pretty good....so for the past week or so I have been saying MAMA over and over and over again and showing her in the mirror that she is Kaylen and I am MAMA.....so anyways...to make a long story short.....99.99% of the time Kaylen wakes up once in the night to feed and sleeps till about 7....well she actually slept through the night last night!!! woo hoo!!! BUT that also meant that she was up early at 6am....so I got her up and changed her then took her to hubby so they could spend some time together before he had to leave for work....well around 630 she started getting really fussy.....well obviously she needed to eat b/c she didn't get up in the middle of the night....so I got up and said I am going to go make the bed and then I will get her bottle ready for her. so I left (bedroom is right beside family room) and I was making the bed....I could hear her getting fussier and fussier that she wanted to eat so I am walking back into the family room and with tears in her eyes she is looking at me from across the room and yells out MAMA!!!!! CLEAR AS DAY!!!!! Now mind you....she has not even ATTEMPTED making ANY of the MMMMM sounds that I have been encouraging her to make....so this was COMPLETELY out of the BLUE!!!! My husband and I just looked at eachother with SHOCKED looks on our faces then we both practically bursted out in TEARS!!! it was AMAZING!!!! I of course ran over to her and scooped her up and made her a bottle IMMEDIATELY!!! What a COMPLETELY AWESOME EXPERIENCE and to make it THAT much better Mike and I BOTH were there to witness her first true word!!!! Now it COULD totally be a fluke...but I DONT CARE!!! She SAID her first word and she clearly KNEW it too b/c she was looking right at me and wanting ME!!!! YAY!!!! FEB 7th what a special day!!!
That's so awesome Callie!!! I'm so happy for you and you are such a great mama. Kaylen is lucky to have such a proud mom! Arianna has stopped babbling for some reason. I think she is focusing on rolling and sitting and that's taking her energy! LOL!
