mama

mason finally said his first solicited "mama" today.
its not that he hasn't said it before. its just that he won't say it when i ask him.

he'll say it when he's mad or fussy or whiny.

but when i smile at him and say, "mason, say mama."

he looks back at me with a mischievous smile and wicked eyes and says, "dada."
then he giggles.

i say, "mama."

he says, "dada!"

i plead, "mason, can you say MA-MA?"

wicked smile, "DA-DA!"

over and over.

me: "mama?"

mason: "dada!"

mason, can you say 9 months of uncomfortable pregnancy?

mason: "dada"

can you say, emergency c-section and brutal recovery?

mason: "dada"

can you say sleep deprivation and exhaustion?

mason: "dada"

can you say fussiest baby i've ever laid eyes on who was held for countless days (and nights!) on end by MAMA?!?!?

mason: "dada"

yeah, you're welcome you little monster. i love you.

Ungrateful little heathens, that's what they are...

But so darn adorable while doing it, you can't help but love them.

At least he has a sense of humor, right?

And after all that trouble as a baby, he'll probably be your most well-behaved teenager.

That's what I tell myself, at least!

Ha! I love his shirt. Levi has one that says "King of the Wild Things". So cute!!! How is Mason sleeping these days? We are having trouble keeping levi in his bed. He thinks we should sit in there until he falls asleep. Grrrr!!!

Yay! My little bugger only says it when she wants to be fed. Meano. Lol.

What's with dada? Is it something genetic?!
