Today was the day. Miles looked at me and said “mama”. Well actually he said “ahmamahh”, it was a magical moment. I was doing dishes and he was annoyed that I wasn’t lifting him out of his highchair. After many attempts to verbalize his wishes, he finally got it out. Ahmamah… I looked at him. Mama? Ahmamahh. Well, that’s good enough for me. I lifted him out and gave him a big hug.
I’m so glad that I was with him the moment that he finally made it happen. It would have truly broken my heart to have heard it second hand. It made all of the labor pains, stretch marks and back pain worth it.
