It has been a big week in our household. Moosie has Strep, but that didn't stop him from making me smile.
Moosie has been becoming more vocal in the past month. Much more jabbering and a few new words including "book," "da da," and "up." His sign repertoire has passed up mine, so I am struggling to keep up. He's gesturing so much now and coming up with signs (like the sign for 'potato') that no one has seemed to teach him.
But best of all, as I'm sure you guessed from the title, is that Moosie can now say "mom." It wasn't something I was waiting or longing for, but now that it's happened, I think it's one of the sweetest sounds I've ever heard.
