First Word

Lately I feel like Natalie is getting over her whole hating-mommy's-guts chapter in life.

She's been asking for me more, freaking out less if I try to take her from Matt and today she called me "mama".

She's babbled this word before, much like in the video but she never said it in association with me.

I've been lucky enough to capture a lot of her firsts on video: first time rolling over, first laugh, first time sitting unassisted, first time walking and now her first real word.

Ahhhh this is such a sweet video! You seem so happy!
Glad she's starting to ask for you more again as well :)

Lil Mister has also been anti mommy lately but it is fading and I know the joys it can bring! I am overjoyed for you!

So sweeet. It really is the best.

This morning taylor said "Mama...Poo?" And then she filled her diaper. Okay, that really isn't the best.

Natalie is so big now!

OK, thanks for making me cry! Those are the BEST moments :)
This actually served as a nice reminder for me not to get so annoyed when my boys say "mom, mom, MOM!" over and over again. It really is such a blessing to get to hear those words!
