Mommy!!! FINALLY!

Just a quick note to let everyone know (especially my parents who I know are sick of hearing me talk about this) that Christian FINALLY signed "MOMMY" this evening. If take a look to the right and see his running list of signs, the kid is doing great. There was just something about him signing "Balloon" and not "Mommy" that made me a bit sad. He HAD his "Ma Ma Ma" spoken sounds, that disappeared a couple of months ago. So, this evening, once Daddy got home, and we we practiced walking on the front lawn, the little man FINALLY signed my name. Chuck deserves a big hug and a kiss from me, as I know he's been working very hard on this particular sign and word with Christian. Thanks sweetie!

I'll never, ever, EVER forget this day.

Shit! I just missed three of your most important posts. Gosh, things are just moving along, aren't they? "Mommy" is a BIG deal! Let the fun begin...thank you for the comments you left me, I really appreciate them. Christina, you are doing an amazing job, even when you might feel lost or like you might not be doing everything you can possibly do, you are, trust me. Jodi

I'm sending Matthew over to take some lessons. I'm STILL waiting on "mommy" of any form from that kid! Congratulations- that is one day that will remain in your heart forever. Rock on, Christian!
