Hattie has been saying, "Dadadada" all day long. I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous. She has yet to babble, "Mamama." I don't understand it! I mean, who was the one that did 99% of the night feedings!?!?! Who is the one that takes care of her all day long?!?! Who is the one that GAVE BIRTH to her!?!?! NOT DADA!!! She is even saying, "Bahbah," which I understand because a girl's gotta eat, but why not "Mama?!?!" Well, anyways, Hattie Ruth is definitely a daddy's girl, and from what I can tell, Sean is pretty smitten, too ;0)!

I was just thinking about that this morning. I was saying to Saige, "do you want to go see Dada?" And then it occurred to me... how many times do I say the word Mama? Never! I think that is just it... since we are with them all day, we would have to speak to them in third person to get them to know our name. I might just start doing that - "Mama's changing your diaper, Mama's playing with you..." I don't think I will be able to keep it up though! : ) And besides we will have to admit sooner or later that our girls have their Daddys wrapped around their little finger and it all starts with saying Dada first. : )

Love you guys - Hattie is a doll!

You are so right! I never thought about how much I say "Dada" to Hattie. Well, I'm just gonna have to start saying "Mama," I guess. Hattie SO has her daddy wrapped around her little, chubby finger. It's so cute! I love watching him melt around her.

The next thing you need to teach her is how to form those little chubby fingers into the shape of a "horns down". That's when we'll know for sure that she's Sean's daughter.

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
