Special Moments and Milestones

Over the last couple of days it seems like Caitlyn has grown up so much. She's nearly 9 months old already which is just incredible. She's been here and a part of our family for longer than I was pregnant. Pretty crazy! It just goes to show that time is flying by and has no intention of slowing down.

Daddy's birthday was the 20th and while yes, she did pick out a lovely tie clip for his birthday gift she also gave him something WAY more special. She waived hello to him when he came home from work yesterday!! We've been showing her the wave for maybe a week and yesterday on her father's birthday she finally demonstrated what she learned.

But wait it gets better... so much better...

Yesterday morning in bed she said "mama" at least I'm pretty sure she said mama and Brock heard it too. Can you believe it, her first word :) Makes my heart melt. Then in the evening she said it again and I did a little happy dance.  I feel so honored and excited that her first word was mama.

Its great that she's so balanced with her special treats, one for mommy and one for daddy. So much fun!

Now a quick look at our favorite morning activity. The basket of toys that gets pulled out and promptly dumped every morning.

Look mama I got it!
