    Oh Fawn, I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes.
    Not because Halia is the first child I have ever seen “speak” her first words, but because… I don’t know what.

    Did I get to take care of enough children in my day? No, not by a long shot! Now I do that vicariously through you, Kara and a few others… (Hope you don’t mind – it’s not as if I lurk…)

    Am I a big softy for baby speak? Who isn’t???

    Is it that I long for grandchildren? Yes!! But I can’t push that until my son is ready to committ…

    Oh, and I LOVE her one foot peeking out of her footsie and the fact that you hadn’t primped her before you shot the video. Stellar Mom!

    she is so cute! That’s your first word too. Dad asked you”Ching-Ting, blue berry da-bu-da?” and you answered “da-da-da-da-da!”:)

    Oh, the cuteness, it slays me! I love the way she sits bolt-upright before answering. Thanks for sharing her with us!

    I bet Michael is hating to miss that! She is sure working her jowls!
    When Naomi says Dad she says it over and over again kind of like that but more like she’s singing it. Bill says “AHHH my favorite song!”

    I thought she was chewing gum there for a second!!! Too cute!!!!!

    That’s funny – I thought of gum, too! I love how she has such a focused look on her face, but a couple of times, just for a fleeting moment, she looks so proud of herself. And so she should be!
