I'm Changing my name to Dada. Or Car.
Nolan has begun babbling. We officially have a consonant!! After all the work with "mamama" and "mmmmm," we finally have.... "dada!" Argh. I was really, really hoping for a mama first this time around! Nolan tends to be quiet most of the time, but when he decides to make noise, let's just say LOUD is an understatement. "AHHHHHHHHHHHHH DADADAAAAAADA" at maximum volume is heard until he tires of his own voice. And I love every second of it.
Since Matthew is talking more and more, I was hoping to finally (after 27 months) get a "mama" out of him. No dice. He can say "help," "two," and "my dad," but not mama. At bedtime two nights ago, Dennis told Matt to say goodnight to me. He came up, gave me a kiss, waved, and then said, "bye car!" He likes cars a lot, so I consider it a compliment. I'm still pining for a "mama," though!
