Brian & I joke all of the time that Jake is going to be a mama's boy and I am perfectly content with this fact (excited over it actually) But---everyone has always told us that his first word would be "Dada" because it's much easier for babies to say....but living up to his mama's boy potential, Jake decided to change it up & say "Mama" as his first word! (Ironically, this exciting milestone took place on Brian's birthday)
Saturday early afternoon, we were hanging out in the living room and Jake was on the floor playing with his blocks...I thought for a moment that I had heard him say it and Nana and Aunt Amy and I just kind of looked at each other...then he said it again, clear as could be!! It was the sweetest sound I've ever heard, next to his little belly laugh! Fortunately for us, he continued his mamamamamamamama babbling all weekend long!
Brian's family came up for the weekend to attend our luau party (see next post for details!) so Jake got to skip school on Friday to hang out with them and they enjoyed their time with him.
