Hey Jude

Hey Ju-Ju, 

One of my favorite things is when I sit down on the couch with something to eat, and you leave your toys behind to come stand next to me and open your mouth like a baby bird. It warms my heart. I love sharing my snacks with you and having you discover new foods with me. Today it wasn't a new food, just some baby-boy puffs, but mommy likes them too. So we shared them together :). 

Guess what else happened today? 
You said your first word.
While you were lying on the floor getting your little lumpy tush changed, I looked up at you, you looked up at me, smiled, and said, "hi!" 
I almost died.
A full out heh-eye. 
For a second, I didn't believe it even happened. I said, "hi", waited patiently while you decided what to do, and then you smiled and said, "hi" back! 
Hey, it doesn't surprise me that this was your first word. Sure, I wanted it to be mama. Maybe even dada. But you're such a friendly little guy that it only seems fitting that the first word of communication to come from those sweet lips in your life would be to say hello :). 
Whether you knew what you were saying or not, I'm still convinced you're the smartest little chocolate chip cookie in the world.

  1. I never comment on your blog, but I do look at it! And I think you are too funny! I know what you mean about babies wanting to eat everything we do. No matter how full they are, they will still come up like a hungry bird and just open their mouths expecting us to feed them. So cute! My blog is on private, so send me your email if you want an invite!
