WORDY Wednesday

I realize this picture is a bit fuzzy...I don't care! It was taken MOMENTS after my Monkey Man said "Mama" and reached up for me. I am SO excited!!!!
See, Monkey Man only says "ought-oh" and only occasionally. WAY back in June(?) he started making the sound "mama" and we got all excited. However, he only did it a couple of times and it was never directed at me. We wanted so badly to count it as a first word...but we knew it really wasn't.

He stopped making that sound all together for a few months, but it has come back in his occasional babbling lately. Today, however, he said it while looking right at me and reaching for me. I'm counting it! Not sure if that is his first or second word. Is "ought-oh" a word or a sound? I DON'T CARE I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!


*And yes, I posted while making supper and my kids are up and around the house...but this was a MOMENT to get in writing!

Oh, how cute, no matter how blurry! I so can relate, until I bought my SLR camera, all my pics of my 3 year old were blurry.

Is it a boy thing, do you think? Or just a toddler thing?

Yea Monkey Man!! So proud of him. And so excited for you, Jenney! Hey, when do you find out if this baby is a blue or pink (ultrasound??)? And have you ever had problems with Snug climbing in MM's crib? I'm in desperate need of some help...

awwwwww....love the first mama! Of course, now I wish I could just be Bob some days since all I hear is "mama" but it is still the sweetest word isn't it?
