Hi Mama!

Laelia can say, “Mama,” now!!! It’s so nice to finally hear! She could say “clavicle” but not “mama”… I mean I  was starting to feel gypped. :) Although we have a friend who’s girlie said, “Tony Hawk” before “Mama” so I don’t feel so bad. :)

Lali had just finished a day at school followed by a short afternoon with Lauren. When I finally got off work and up to the front door I was greeted by two grinning faces, then one of those faces (the Laelia one) says, “Hi MA-MA!” It was so precious! First time I’ve ever heard it! And Laelia said “Mama!” and “Mama please!” and “Mama Mama Mama!” all the way home!

But that’s not her only trick as you’ll see in the video. :)

    Yay, Lali! I can’t tell whether the “Hi Mama” or the counting to ten is cuter, but I bet I know which one you are enjoying more. ;) (Sophie says: “Baby! Good job!”)
