And the first word is...

Today is one of the greatest days ever, one of our children said their first word. Who could it be, what was the word???

Lets just say that there is one word I would not say for the longest time in our house and that is Dada, I always said that person or that man to the kiddos because I did not want that to be their first worddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd........

Dada in control of this blog now. First, I would like to announce there is a spot open as my favorite child, Logan and Lizy first to say Dada gets the opening. To Madi it was a good run but you have made your decision.

Second, if any of you knew the extreme measures AJ has taken to ensure this day would come it would be disbelief. There was the before mentioned not calling me by name (this really happened she is not kidding). There was the "Mama" song she would sing at every meal, playtime, bath time, etc. This song had but one word, Mama. I am almost certain she threatened the kids with only eating peas if they said Dada first. All of this has paid off as of course today Madi finally ended the suspense.

Finally, I wish there was a hidden camera that recorded AJ in the minutes after Madi said "Mama". Imagine hitting the game winning shot, or last minute field goal to win the super bowl. There was jumping, screaming, more jumping, and I think the info was on Facebook in less then 45 seconds. Congrats Mama you win this round but the war is far from over!

Hi, I'm expecting twins, and already have a 19 month old. I'm researching triple stollers and was looking through your blog to see what you ended up with... but thought it might be easier to ask than read through your entire last few years. :) I know you're busy, but any input would be great! Thanks so much,
Rachel
