First Words

Maddi is exactly 6 months old today, and she just happened to say her first word... Dada! Drew said his first word (Dada) at 6 months one week, and Maddi's been babbling for a while now, so we knew those sacred first words were coming soon. I was soooo hoping that Maddi would say Mama first just to balance out the parental egos, so when I heard her babbling today and I heard her saying certain other words (Dada and what seriously sounded something like brother), I kinda sorta ignored them, BUT tonight after Drew went to bed, Sean and I were sitting on the couch watching TV with Maddi when she looked up at him and said Dada...TWICE. Yep... there was no denying it then, and I just have to face the fact that my babies love their daddy more. It's so amazing to hear your little one's voice for the first time, and I can't think of a better father's day/birthday gift for Sean.

Love's got nothing to do with it - it's just easier to say the "D" sound! Trust me - I'm speaking from experience!
