Mama is the word....the first word

Well the title says it all. monkey's is now talking, and his first word is....MAMA! Saturday morning he started saying it on his own, now when asked to say "Mama", he does:) He will be seven months at the end of the month, and he is changing so much. He as I said is talking, he is attempting to crawl, in fact I think it will be very soon when he figures it all out. He is doing so well! His 6 month check up was yesterday and he weighs 16.7lbs, and he is 26 1/2 inches long. He is one inch shorter than Hayden was but .4 pounds heavier. I am so glad that he is doing so well they kept telling me at his birth, that he would be delayed in almost everything he did, and to treat him like a premature baby.....Boy were they wrong:) He is still such a happy smiley baby, and I love it!

princess and speed racer went to the dentist for their check up this morning, and they are doing great! They both got x-rays and cleanings and they are cavitiy free!! I am so proud of them both, they brush their own teeth every morning and every night, and they dont fuss about it a bit. At the dentist that they see I can not go back with them at all, they take the kids, then at the end while I am checking out, they tell me what is going on with their teeth. They both do so good with it and I'm glad. I had and still have major issues with dentist, well not issues, but fears. It takes a lot for me to go, and I don't want them to go through the same thing, so I am trying to start early and hopefully this will stick with them to take care of their teeth.

I am now called "Mom" by princess, she has decided to turn into a pre-teen (attitude wise) and she now says, "You know, Duh, Mom!!" it is so funny, but I do not like being called mom, it makes me feel like she is not my baby anymore, I still want her to call me momma, or mommie. She also now says "Whatever" and "What is ever!" too funny!

I went home to Alabama on March 8th through the 11th, and had a great time! I went home because my mom had her second hip replacemnt. It was a suprise to her, she had no idea I was coming! It was nice to see her reaction, I could not believe that I kept it from her. I'm not good at that sort of thing. But her surgery went good, and she is home now. She is not able to leave the house for six weeks, which upsets her because my sister is due anytime now. Her due date is April 1st, but she could really go at any point. So hopefully it will work out, and maybe mom will be able to go up.

thanks for stopping by my blog! where in alabama are you from? i'm from there too! i also had a premature baby..she's 15 months now and they said to expect delays but she has done so well..no real delays at all! i think preemie babies are much tougher and smarter than they are given credit for sometimes!
