Tag Archives: baby’s first word


that’s right. grayson said dada today… over and over. I’m not going to lie… I was a tad jealous… but I’ll also admit I was super stoked. my kid said a word. not sure if it really was a word or if he was just babbling… but still… we both (meaning john and I) heard him loud and clear… about four times today say… dada. it was quite possibly the cutest thing ever. he got his cutest little baby voice on and cooed all over us. he’s quite the charmer this kid.

that was pretty much the highlight of today. I went through his wardrobe today and packed away what he can’t wear. can I just tell you he’s wearing 6-9 month clothes?! he doesn’t look that big to me… (I think the cloth dipes are partly to blame)… nevertheless, we’re back to having an organized nursery. the only room in the house I’m even remotely type a about.

I’m feeling exhausted today. I mean I’m hardly keeping my eyes open to write this post. I don’t even know why. grayson is practically sleeping through the night. only waking once to eat (between 2-5)… and I don’t even have to change him usually. and he’s going to sleep 8-9ish… you’d think this would be the new parent’s dream… why am I so tired?!

I think it’s because I feel like change may be a comin’… and just thinking about it is wearing me out. I’m not going to spill any beans of any sort at this point… but, I’m starting to have stress dreams. yikes. don’t you worry… john and I are solid… nothing weird there. part of me thinks I’m itching a bit for a change. I get like this from time to time. moving into the house we’re living in was my 23rd move in 26 years. crazy right? we moved around a bit as a kid and I continued that trend into my adult life. I’m having a hard time settling in. I hate that! on the other hand though, I have learned to adapt… and that skill is priceless.

anywho, I’m becoming a tad delirious… so I suppose it’s time to stop rambling. wish me luck on the sleep thing. I could use some quality shut eye tonight… so, I’m going to leave you with a picture of my talking baby and his adorable dada… toodloo for now.
