Newsflash: Antibiotics cause mental growth spurts in children under 6 months!
Nah, just kidding. But now that Cupcake is feeling better, she's had a developmental growth spurt! Hubby and I have been fighting over her both of us saying Mama or Dada. She's been totally confused, too. But last night, while Hubby was working late and I had some extra time with them, I took advantage and just continued to repeat "mamamamamama". Her little jaw started working but no sound came out.
I praised her and praised her and continued to say it. Before I knew it, she was saying "yayayayayayaya". Not close, but progress for a 5 month old. Then "yaya" turned into "wawawawawawa". This morning she continued to perfect it and there was a definite "mama" amongst it all. WOOHOO! I win, Hubby, neener neener neeeeeeeener!
I still don't count it for her baby book until she's intentionally saying mama, but it's only a matter of time...
Oh and....I think it's time for a haircut, no?
