Most recently is a very very VERY cherished moment. It warms my heart just thinking about it. Ethan said his very first word! And what was it you might ask???? IT WAS "MA-MA"!
Oh, how it warms my heart to hear that from Ethan's sweet teething mouth. Of course he doesn't know what it means and the entire first day when he said it, it was only as he was whining. So he has been making "grandpa gums" to make his growing teeth to feel better (i think), and there only a few words you can say with your mouth like this and not using your tongue and "ma-ma" is one of them. Nonetheless HE SAID MAMA and I am one proud mama.
He now says it when he is not so grumpy because he gets such a big response from me. Jared, on the other hand, says it doesn't count as his first word. I guess it won't count for him until he says "da-da"
Here is one of the first times he said it.
