Say it again and again and again

He said "momma." Just like that! It happened this past Wednesday at 12:21 p.m. Baby bear was on the bed playing with his toys while I was getting dressed for the day. I was rambling on about what we had planned for the day. I walked over to the bed and he looked up at me with his arms out and said "momma." I leaped for JOY! I picked him up, hugged him, and pleaded for him to say it again. He smiled at me, giggled, and said it again. Oh what a feeling! How long have I waited for those words to be spoken to me. Even now a few tears stream down my face because God's gifts are truly spectacular. Now I don't know if it was coincident or what BUT he was wearing his "I love mommy" onesie. That just made all the sweeter. 







Now for stats. We did have our 9 mth. check up on Tuesday. Actually, Dr. H did his 9 mth. at 8 mths. because I was already there for shots. So, we went on Tuesday for a follow up to the flu shot. He had to get the other half of the shot. I asked the nurse if we could weigh him and measure to see how much he has grown. 


he is ....21 lbs. 4 1/2 ounces 50%

"       " .....30 1/2 in. tall  97-98%






IT IS A GREAT WEEK IN MY HOUSE.....=0) I just love being a mom!


  1. I'm so happy for you, dear. That is THE SWEETEST word you'll ever hear your child utter. LYLAS~

  2. I really LOVE looking through your first-time Mommy eyes!!

  3. That is the best sound ever! By the way, it still is, 3 years into this wonderful mommy game.

  4. How sweet. I remember Rylen's first "Mamamama". He wanted me at church. Of course, now I typically just get the sign for Mommy, but to hear the sweet voice of your son is just plain magic!
