It's official, and there's no disputing it this time: Emmett has totally made me the happiest mom ever, saying 'mamma' for the first time while we were sitting on the couch last Friday night watching TV.
Okay -- so I may have prompted him to say it, but now he'll say it without question whenever I ask him to, and it's the best feeling ever. I literally melted the first time he said it. Who knew something so simple would make my night? Anyway, if you don't believe me, here's the proof...
This is huge, considering he'd started saying complicated words like 'purple' before 'mamma,' and I'd starting thinking he and James were playing some kind of crude practical joke on me. Are kids younger than age two even capable of making practical jokes? The jury's still out. Next stop: saying 'mamma' without being prompted.
