Mia has been suffering the side effects of *the wedding*. We've all been so busy and she is not used to the *lack* of attention. She enjoys being the center of attention, duh, she's almost 2!! She has also entered into the terrible two's! My 16 year old sister lovingly jokes that this is the milestone Mia wants to hit early!! Ha! Ha! Not funny sis! So, Mia has been a little bit of a cranky one lately, she also gets very clingy to me and won't let anyone else but me hold her. She hasn't eaten for days, literally. I really don't like the food battles, but I do get concerned when days go by and she won't eat. Thankfully she is still taking about 32 ounces of Pediasure a day so she is getting some nutrition.
Yesterday morning she woke up and was in a bad mood, this is not the norm for her. She was standing in her crib screaming. I walked into the room and said "Why do you have to scream why can't you just call Mommy". I walked her into my mom's room and put her in front of the mirror as I cuddled her. When she wakes up I always cuddle with her and give her lots of kisses. My mom walked into the room and was talking to her too. She asked if Mia loved her mommy. Mia was giving me *big hugs* and then she picked her head up off my shoulder and looked at me and SAID "MAM-MY"! It was so cute, it came out more of MAM than MOM and it was broken up a little the MAM and the ME sound. My heart melted, she doesn't say any specific words and she doesn't really babble mommy!! She hasn't said it again so maybe it was a fluke, but her voice is just so sweet! I can't wait to her more!!

That is so sweet! That happened to my kids all the time, they would say something then we would be like maybe we were hearing things. I say they put it in the vault to use later. But it all eventually comes back out.

Yay Mia! That is so wonderfully sweet! I love the fact you cuddle her awake every day! I bet that she loves that. There is nothing better than hugging your little one!

Congrats on the first word! Go Mia!!!

What a great story! Everytime I hear Bennett say something that resembles a word, my heart melts. I can't wait until I know for sure.
