Finally! MUM'S the word!

Cute gushy moment here...

For anyone who MISSED the previous posts, Laurent's first words have been, in order of arrival: "Dada", followed quickly by "Dagh" (dog), "Dagh-dagh"(Cade), "Sisi" (Sierra's nickname), "Tas"(Tache), "khee" (kitty), a noise mimicing a miaow and "Goo gurr" (good girl, always refering to Hope, who is told she's a good girl about a jillion times a day). Geeze, can't tell he lives in an animal loving household can you???? :rolls eyes:

More recently "ca-cka"(cracker), "unna ca-cka?" (want a cracker... to the dogs, who YES, always do want a cracker) "um-um-UM" (yum yum), "meh-ohn" (melon, as in watermelon), "toas" (toast), nahnah (banana), "fisss" (fish) etc.

Even more recently we've heard him mimic words like "cee-rooo" (cherio), "ta-koo" (thank you", "uss ah?" (what's that) and "eah!!! at-eah!" (there! or that-there! while pointing enthusiastically from me asking, "What's that there? What's there? What do you see?) and FINALLY... today, at long last...
....
....
....
"MUM!".... "Mumumum... mum mum MUMMA!!!"


Alas, I wasn't there to hear it. This was blurted out when Dada had taken Lala out on a walk.

Nic told me and Bunny Lala DID say it again when he got back and saw me and has been chanting it since, as I think he's caught onto the fact he can get whatever he wants by indulging me in calling me mum. I need to remember how long I waited for this when he's older and whines, "but muu-uuuuummmmmmmm...." ;-)

Isn't it just the greatest word in the world! (and yet, yesterday I found myself saying to Luey, in repsonse to, "Muuum, Muuum, Muuum, Muuuum...", "Yes, that's my title, don't wear it out"... But it's still lovely...
