We were downstairs on the couch and I was halfway paying attention to her "gibberish" while she played with blocks.
And then I heard it.
Me: *shrieking* "YES! That's right! MAMA! Ohmygosh Olivia! That's right! Mama!!!"
Olivia: "MAMA!" smiles.
I've waited 17 looooong months to hear "Mama." Of course, she's mastered every word BUT Mama, such as "Daddy, Kitty and Hi."
Good things come to those who wait, I guess. I like that she waited until Mothers Day week to spout out "Mama." Best gift ever.
