Now I know what you are thinking. Parents tend to exaggerate. I mean really what baby less than four months can talk? Well, I wouldn’t say she can talk but she can say Nana 🙂
It started a few days ago when she started saying “na”. She didn’t know what she was doing except that everyone got excited when she made that sound so she kept making it. (My mom has been trying to get her to say that since birth). I didn’t believe it at first but four separate people all heard her say “nana”.
I was still not a believer until last night. I got up to go to the washroom and when I was in there June woke up and I heard her clearly yell “Nana”. So, it’s official, that’s her first word.
Am I jealous it wasn’t mama? No and here’s why. My first word was also Nana. My mom was a teacher and she had me over the summer break so she went back to school when I was about six weeks old and left me in the care of my Nana. We had a very special relationship and I spend more time with her than my mom in my first six years of life. I love her so much. Sadly, she passed away unexpectedly in her sleep on Mother’s Day five years ago. I miss her every day. Her name was June.
Ahh, all the sudden it all makes sense.
I am so lucky my mom, their nana is around to love my kids the way my nana loved me. Both my parents have been amazing and I don’t know what I would do without them.
Now, I wonder what Sansa’s first word will be. Hmmm.
