This past week, our family has been busy. Lets be real, we're always busy. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in a day. My brother arrived on Friday and we've been catching up. It's been two years since we've seen each other ( he lives in England) and although we talk regularly on the phone- its just not the same.
Over the past few days, Nathan has been babbling a lot more at dinner time when we're all sitting at the dinner table. He babbles and we babble back (conversation like) he even started making a "yeah, yeah" type of sound this week which was really exciting.
Last night, as we were finishing dinner, Nathan was getting tired. He was squirming and wanting down. I went over and grab his little head and gave him a kiss and told him to wait just a second and I'd get him down, as I turned my back to walk away he then said " mammmm mum mum mmmm" I froze. Had a blank look on my face, looked over at Sean and said" did he just say that?" Sean said did you hear he said "mom" and Alyssa out of total excitement said, "mommy, Nathan just said his first word- he said mom"
It was truly music to my ears...
