He said it…Gavin said Mama!!!!! And he didn’t just mumble the sound and say it in the normal babbling way that he has in the past. No, this time he reached for me and said ma-ma!!! Truly the best sound ever! I absolutely love that the last week I have been able to be home with my family and witness his progress. Most parents get to be excited about this moment so much earlier in a child’s life, but I have waited 26 months to hear my beautiful baby boy speak my name. The moment was even better than I imagined. I can’t explain the sheer joy I felt when I heard it and in actual reference to me. January 1, 2014 will be marked as the day he said mama and the start of what will hopefully be a better year for him. Here’s to a Happy New Year Everyone!!!
