Congratulation Mama!!!!

Rhonda Hennessy said...

Yay for Andrew!

ML said Mama right after Dada. It was great until recently...she now says "Elmo"...which either sounds like "Melmo" or "Mama." And I'm never sure exactly which one (unless there is a cookie involved, in which case I know she means "Mama"). The rest of the time, she points at me and says "Dada?" Maybe we have some work to do yet :)

I love your pictures with the new camera!

Congrats on the mama!

Do you remember the play when your line was "Mamaaa!"? But I think it's because until now he has thought of you as being the same as himself.

I know that must have been music to your ears!
