dance He Did It! He Called me "MaMa"!

Starting last night my son started calling me "Mama!" Yay! Finally! I let him play on the floor while I laid in bed and watched and I guess he missed me so he started lookin around and said "Mama! Mamamamamamamamaaaaaa!" and he started whining until I got up and he saw me then he started crawling towards me and put his arms up for a pick up and said it again "Mamamamamama!"

Awww What a great feeling. He does it all of the time now mostly when he wants to get my attention or he's ready to eat or sleep. Tug on my pants, Mamamamammama! He better start saying it when he's happy too.

So he just turned 6months now he can

-Say "Mama"
-Crawl
-Climb
-Stand up
-Walk as long as he's holding on to something
-Sit independently
-Roll
-Eat solids
-Pass things back and forth between hands
-Feed himself

I'm so dern proud of my boy. Next Doc asked me to start trying him with a sippy cup soon.

I wanted to cry but I was too busy grinning like crazy

He IS so advanced! I can't keep up. On the one hand I'm happy that he's moving right along, he wants badly to be independent and it seems like every week he's learning to master something new. On the other hand, I'm a bit sad because I don't have much time to cherish him being a little baby because he wants to be a big boy and does so much so quickly. Sometimes I can't keep up.

I can't even keep good records in his baby book because his first year and achievements are going so fast!

For instance, when he first stood up. It was never something I worked on with him. He had JUST learned how to sit independently so he was sitting on the floor playing and the next thing I know he grabbed my leg and pulled himself right up like it was nothing and he stood there for a long time. I was like where did that come from?

Congrats Billabong!

I remember when my DD said it! Very special! The milestones are all so special and happen so fast. If your like me, I write down everything. Words, things she accomplishes, how many teeth she has... OK, ok maybe I am a bit extreme.
But seriously though, congratulations, you are a great mama!

Yay!!! Congrats!!! Now I am completely jealous, J still won't say "mama". When I try to get him to say it, he growls at me. LOL! Oh well, it will come in time.

Nat - I'm going to be like you and start keeping better records. When everything started happening so fast I kinda gave up LOL

Schroed - My baby does the same thing. When I would hold him I'd keep saying "Mama" over and over and he'd just look at me crazy, sometimes he'd smile. I'm so shocked that he decided to say it when he needed me .. I really didn't think he even understood what the word meant. But every time I do something for him I say "Mama" is doing it and I've done that since he was born.

"Mama is here" when he cries.
"Let Mama change you"
"Mama is going to get you a bottle"'

I guess it's true what they say .. babies are smarter than we think and pick up on all sorts of things.

Dad - Kids can sense things that would astound you! One of my earliest memories is that of fear. All 4 of us were so little and sitting in a room playing. I remember hearing footsteps and feeling instant terror....until I saw that it was Mom that came thru the door and not my Dad. I was so relieved. I was 3.

I'm so sorry, That hurts, as a Dad, to hear that man was like that.

I am very thrilled. I do feel the bond growing between us every day and I can tell he really loves me and trusts me. That makes me feel so good. Everything I ever went through to get him here has been so worth it.

I always hear "DaDa" is supposed to come first because its easiest for babies to say. Funny though, my son hasn't said anything even close to "DaDa" .. so like Dad, I'm wondering if that says anything

My son said mama for the first time on Christmas... He was 7months old....he doesn't have a dada, but that's all I get out of him. He will say dada, and I say mama back to him.... He says mama about once a month....and it makes me sad, I know he can say it....he won't, he says dada instead.....I'm not sure where he's getting it.
