Today for Mother's Day I got the best gifts imaginable. First Bob came back home in time to spend the day with us and secondly (get ready for it) Ethan said his first real word! After weeks and weeks of hearing Dadadada and Babababa with the occasional Mama thrown in there (okay it was only said twice and probably in my own imagination), he finally said his first real word....MaMum! Usually I will wait a few days to make sure he really did something intentionally but because it's a special day I'm going to call it early. Twice today he said MaMum, the first was when I left the room and he got upset that I was leaving and called it out. The second time Bob was holding him and he turned to look at me, leaned towards me and said it again. Yea! I love hearing his little voice and I can't wait until he can really talk and communicate to us.
In other news, Ethan also can now wave good-bye. He does a cute little wave where he just curls all his fingers open and closed. He is the cutest ever.
