First Words

Tracen said his first words today...

To my Dad's dismay, it wasn't Papahashi (even with all the practice and repetition they did...)

And to my dismay it wasn't Mom, or mum or momma or anything maternal (didn't he learn anything from his cousin Meika)...

It was Dada

But I'm not convinced that he really meant to say it (okay I am) and we haven't been able to get him to say it again  - he moves his tongue and lips the right way, just no sound comes out.

Anyways - he said it to Luke, and I wanted to almost pretend I didn't hear it from the other room, but I was just so excited I couldn't deny that he said it.

We will be workin extra hard on getting him to say MOM

Harrison only says mama when in distress. I actually sit there with him and go 'mama' and he looks right back at me and says 'dada'! It is hilarious. And it really is easier for them to say 'dada' than it is 'mama' least this is what all the moms tell me :)

What he was really saying though was "dad, get out of my face and get my FAVORITE person: mom.

or me.

It's just a matter of time. When I babysat him I said "mama" a million times to him. Hopefully that doesn't make him think I'M his mama... but I was just trying to play on team Alana!
