Sara Beth is very talkative and has lots of words in her vocabulary already. She can say (in her own little way) ball, book, dog, cat, Zilla, Daddy, Uh-oh, bite (for another bite of food), water, etc. All those words and no word for her mama. :-( Today, in the car, she and I were talking back and forth like we always do. I said "mama" and she would say "baba". Repeat that about 20 times and I finally figured out that "Baba" is my name. Hooray! I have a name and it is "Baba" to SB. Then, the reading teacher came out in me and I realized that when looking at your mouth, "mama" and "baba" look very similar. Your lips come together with the /m/ and /b/ sounds. So, that's where she got "Baba" from. Just thought I'd share. . .
We've been married for 14 years and have 2 little blessings, Sara Beth and John David. We strive to be the parents that God wants us to be for them. Before having kids, we traveled the world and had exciting adventures together. Now, in this season of our lives, we are still having adventures. They may look a little different, but these adventures are the ones that really matter.
