My giggly, smiley boy!
For a while now, Xander has been giving it the old “Mumumum”, “Dadada” and “Bababa”, but this morning, I think I was treated to my first proper “Mama”!
He was in his bouncer while I was on the computer, so I wasn’t looking at him, when suddenly he shouted “Mama!” which made me look up in surprise. He then bounced a couple more times, then raised his arms to be lifted and said it again, “Mama!” like he was specifically asking me to pick him up out of his bouncer!
Of course, I’m grinning like the Cheshire Cat now! It might be a fluke, but I’m choosing to see it as Xander finally recognising my new name. And just a couple of days after my first Mothers’ Day too!
