Elijah is beginning to talk a little bit. He has said "dada" and "papa" and even something that sounded like "Josiah" and "Elijah." He has not, however, said "Mama" yet. He can say "em" when he sees the letter "M," but he refuses to say "Mama."
This morning I was repeating "mama" to Elijah in the hopes that he would imitate the sound. After a while Elijah put his little hands on my cheeks, turned my face towards his, looked me in the eye and said... "dada!" (sigh).
