Joe is thrilled to finally hear 'da-da' after weeks of 'ma-ma-ma-ma-ma'. We're also hearing a whole new array of sounds & jibberish. Tooth #6 made its appearance on Wednesday; we were starting to wonder because it had been a full two & a half months since the last teething. And the little man now plays a mean game of peek-a-boo.

Levi actually slept through the night last night - for the first time since my last "slept through the night" post = weeks ago. I feel I am quietly suffering what every new mother must surely at some point = chronic fatigue.

It's a mild Saturday afternoon here - a Locally Grown beef roast with mushrooms bubbling away in the crockpot - a hummingbird cake freshly baked & iced (no hummingbirds were harmed in the making of this cake) - and the husband whipping up a pot of fat laden mashed potatoes.

I'm thinking of supper & then a soak in the tub....

We have the opposite problem. Weeks of da-da-da-da including signing daddy but rarely do I hear a ma-ma and I've never seen him sign mom.

Grady was sleeping through the night finally and I didn't speak of it for fear of jinxing it. Then he started getting a cold and that all went down the drain anyway. Ugh.
