When Alexander started “talking”, of course, da was once of his favorite words and I was a little hurt that he didn’t have a name for me especially since I was the one taking care of him all day.  I know all the books say da will come first because it’s an easier sound for them to make but still.  Slowly, I also became da and then I became ma.  However, the best was in late October 2008 , when I was rewarded with Mommy.  As far as I was concerned, it was the best sound Alexander could have uttered.  In my head, I can still hear his little voice say Mommy.  It makes me sad and happy at the same time.
