So, Hope will be 16 months old on Thursday! She babbles all the time, but hadn’t really said any “real” words … until recently! She started to say “bye bye” clearly 2 weeks ago and it’s been Off to the Races ever since! She had kinda’ sorta’ been saying Da Da, but now she clearly says Daddy and Nanny! Mommy too, although not quite as clearly or as often. (No respect! LOL!) Today I got her to say Yummy and she was saying it all day after that! It is sooo cute! Who would’ve thought I could have been so proud of my child for saying “Yummy?” LOL. Such precious days, these are.
