Mama?

I always have the video monitor on Ivy when she is sleeping. The other day I didn't notice she had sat up and I heard the faintest sweetest little girliest voice call "Mama?"

"Mama?"

I ran to her and scooped her up and felt so special that I had someone to call me Mama like that.

Just now I was looking at her and blinking my eyes and am sure I saw her grow right there in front of me.

She got her first big boo-boo the other day, on the side of her nose. You see, she thinks she can fly. And also my friends call her a pinball. It's pretty accurate.

But she just gets right up, doesn't even take the time to cry or dust herself off, and tries to fly again.

  3. She is just a doll!

    Jackson got a really bad boo boo the other day too, he fell and got a nasty cut at the corner of his eye.

    But, he got up and kept on playing...they are so tough at this age. :-)

  6. a new brain, I swear. I read her shirt and my heart skipped a beat --- until I realized it said LITTLE sister. HA ;) I don't know what has happened to my brain.

    She is beautiful. I hear Dada and Dog-dog all day long... I only heard Mama when he was younger and crying. I can't wait to hear it again.

    This phase of life is full of sweetness and delight, isn't it? Truly the sweetest time of a child's life.

    She is beautiful - Boo-boo or not!

  8. She's so precious! May I please ask where you got that adorable shirt and leggings? I'm looking for big/little sister/brother shirts for my kids when the new baby arrives!

  9. Her shirt & leggings are from Gymboree.

    I also have been trying to keep everyone updated on where her outfits are from on my Flickr, too, LOL.

  10. She looks so BIG now that she's 1!! My Libbie is 11 months and seems more like a little girl and less like a baby every day. It kills me and overjoys me at the same time. She only pulls out "mama" for the big guns--if she REALLY REALLY wants my attention. But she babbles "dada" all day.

    Wish we lived closer and could get them together to play. It would be a hoot. AND we got our No Slippy Hair Grippies yesterday. I LOVE THEM! THEY STAY IN! That is, unless a certain child yanks them out. Sigh.

  28. Hi. I run a natural and organic website for children & babies. I am interested in talking with you about writing and consulting for us. I don't know the best way to get in touch with you.
    The website is franklingoose.com. I enjoy your blog!

  29. Look how stylish she is! She's a fashionista already. :)

    And what a truly joyful smile that is. It looks like you caught her in the middle of a genuine laugh.
