The Sweetest Sound… Da Da!

I came home last Tuesday at 8:30 after a long day of fixing PCs and closing website deals and prepared myself to switch gears and give my wife a baby break. As usual, she tells me “you will never believe what Jake did today!” turns out he said Da Da again. I had never actually heard him, but almost everyone else in our family had.

That night he looked right at me and said Da Duh. In that one instant my entire day melted away and it was so nice to be home. Jacob is almost 6 months old now, and he is one heck of a good kid. It really says something when people with toddlers come up to my wife at the grocery store and ask how she gets the baby to be so good.

I am truly blessed to have a happy and healthy family. Sometimes its the little things that help you put life in perspective, and this was one of those things.

    What a moment! And there are so many more to come! Enjoy every one of them, because as a parent of 2 girls, 12 & 14…….I can tell you that it was ONLY YESTERDAY that they were saying ma-ma or da-da….Of course now they ask for MOOLA! But they are still my babies!
    So happy for you and your family!

    Thanks for being there for us when our computer needs you!!

    Ohhhh! Your wonderful story takes me back. My GRANDKIDS are 10, 9 & 4, but you absolutely NEVER forget the first MAMA or DADA from each and every child, but that very first one is such a thrill. Cherish each and every "new thing" they say and do.
