First Words

"Dada!"  He has been saying it constantly all morning.  He had been stuck on "ah dah" for a few days but now is saying it correctly over and over.  Thank goodness I know it's just because it's easier to say than mama, otherwise my feelings might have been hurt ;) I hope he remembers I stayed up with him day and night for the first 10 weeks!!!! I will try to get a video of it asap!

Also a wondeful note- HE SLEPT 5 SOLID HOURS LAST NIGHT!  He then woke up at 4:30, 5:30 and started the day at 6:30 but my fantastic husband kept him occupied and let me sleep until 8:20. WAHOO!!!!


  1. awww how exciting! please get a video for us!

    I don't know how you've done it with the sleep - but you deserve a gold medal for patience! lol. we're so spoiled by clara's sleep habits that it's seriously part of the reason we're only having the one child!

  2. Ellie started saying, "dada" a couple weeks ago too. I was just like you..I would have felt bad if I didn't know it was easier to say. She's now saying Mmma and reaching for me. It's the sweetest thing ever! Melts my heart!

    Glad you got some sleep. I don't know how you do it! Ellie goes down about 7:00 and doesn't get up until I wake her up at 6:30 to get ready to go to the babysitter. So I can't imagine how you do it!

  3. Go Truitt, such a cutie and I love his name it's so different but cool!
