Anyway, as we were relaxing, 4 1/2 month old baby Chase was sitting there, happily babbling, when out of the blue he said "Mama" as clear as a bell! Those of us who heard him "speak" were quite surprised, since we'd never heard him make any specific sounds resembling words. What a special, and very memorable moment that was for his "Mama"!
Is anything more special than hearing the word "Mama" for the first time? It makes this mother's heart sing! I'm sure Chase will say "mama" at least a million more times in his future, but it will never be quite as special as that first time--especially since he chose to say it on Mother's Day, with a room full of witnesses!
What a Mother's Day gift!
