FINALLY!! The most wonderful words...

I was so happy to hear these wonderful words, that I shrieked with excitement.

***** Jillian said "Ma-Ma" *****

In fact, I think I scared her with my shriek of excitement.  I kept saying "Say it again! Say it again!", but she just stared at me like I was from another planet (anyone could have seen that I wasn't far off though), and was probably thinking "This woman is truly insane".

But then, the magical words came again... "Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma"   And my heart melted again.

After hearing two and a half months of "Da-da", then "Ba-Ba", then just "Da", I was beginning to think M's were just never going to happen.  Add to that the clear fact that Daddy is the only one who gets kisses, and the one she snuggles best with, and I was pretty much sold to the idea that I was nothing more than the nasty lady who insisted on cleaning up her dripping snot and booger-filled nose, and therefore making her cry all the time.

But she said it today - and that's all that matters. 

Of course at this point, "ma-ma" likely means anything BUT mommy (much like "da-da").  But I'm choosing not to believe that...
