Tonight I was supposed to be at work - long story short I'm home until 11pm. We were outside with the neighbor's dogs (one of our favorite things to do) - and all of the sudden Bella said, "dog - dog"!! I was SO happy that I was here to share in the excitement of her first word! She just kept saying it over and over - "Dog"! The bottom photo with her and the dogs captures the moment! She also had her first cup of strawberry milk and her first chance to lick the spoon I used to make cookies - she was thrilled with both! She turns ONE next Sunday - she's getting so big! I can't believe how much I enjoy her - by the third child I think you can finally relax enough to really capture the spirit of being a mom and enjoy it!
*A side note! Bri also said a couple of her first words. Experience #1: Bo came over to me and said, "Mom, Bri just said the "H" word!" When I asked her about it she said, "No I didn't! I said, 'What the HELL!'" Experience #2: Bri was lifting a heavy bucket of sea shells off the table, she was struggling a bit with the weight of it. Soon she started to say, "Damn it! Damn it!" I said, "Bri what did you just say?" So, she repeated it clearer! Needless to say, out here swear words are normal! I have NEVER heard the "F" word as many times - I have never heard so much vulgarity in all my life - so much that my almost 5 year old is starting to think they are just the norm! Needless to say, we have had several heart to hearts!
