Health Alert!


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?

Glad to hear she's feeling better. And on her way to saying "momma" huh? I'd be gloating too.

I'm glad she is doing better! Scary.

And, maybe we need some antibiotics here...I feel like we're on the slow path (but Nat is a little tank)!
