a special birthday...

just a quick note to share the best birthday present i got today. while we had breakfast at a local restaurant, maya out of the blue said "bu-bye" to a total stranger. this was the second time in the last week that she has said "bu-bye" to someone. i can see that there is a shift going on in her mind...she is constantly trying to mouth "bbb" sounds and is vocalizing more in general. this is very different than the "ddd" sounds she has made for a while now.

it was a wonderful moment, to hear her sweet little voice. beside dada, this is the first "word" she has said and meant it. this is the best gift a mama could ever get!

Happy birthday a little late. I know the feeling. My boy said "apple" the day of my birthday. It is a wonderful feeling.
