How do you know when your child calls YOU mom or dad for the first time? For months, Jordan has been babbling mama mama mama. That's all it is though. Or at least I am fairly certain that is all it is. Many times when he babbles like that, I say "Yes, Jordan" or "Yes, Baby." I have no idea if he realizes that is me. I am mama.
Every day my husband, Mike goes "Dada dada dada daddy" to Jordan, but Jordan refused to make those sounds for the longest time. He was good with just "ma-mas" and 'ba-bas." Last night, when Mike was in the shower and I was working on feeding Jordan, he finally did it. Like....did it, did it. The last couple days "dadas" were forming, but this was full on...
Oh. My. God. He is so freakin' adorable. I still think it's just sounds, but I look forward to the day he calls us those names.
After feeding him, I left (went out in the below zero temperatures) to go volunteer at a school function. I dread doing this because little man is usually falling asleep between 7-7:30pm during the week since we get him up at 4:30am to go to his grandpapi's house during the week. I always want to spend whatever awake time I can get with him. On my way home at 7:45pm, I pulled this video up on my Instagram and let it loop play over and over the whole way home. I just can't get enough of him. When I walked in the door I was fully expecting him to be sleeping in his crib, but instead he was playing on the floor. That literally made me the happiest mama. I got in comfy clothes, picked him up, sat him on my lap, and played with him for a good hour. Then I handed him off to daddy so I could work on something for work and he fell asleep in daddy's arms. I live for my nights. I love my little family.
