This morning I was woken up by the best sound ever, by my little girl shouting “Mummy” from her cot! It’s just as an amazing feeling third time round as it was the first time. I couldn’t quite believe my ears and desperately wanted her to say it again so I knew it hadn’t been an accident! It took her a while but she’s said it quite a few times today – the most heartbreaking was when I was walking out of the room to go upstairs and she shouted after me “Mummy!” I felt so guilty walking away from her! I think that’s going to be a common theme with Amy as she’s a right Mummy’s girl at the moment.
Mummy wasn’t her only new word today! I was talking to Dave about some shoes and heard Amy repeat the word “shoes” whilst crawling off towards a pile of shoes in the room! There was no fluke there. She repeated it a couple of times during the morning as well.
