Derek and I have been working hard to get Isaac to say “Mama”. We chant it over and over at him and he just continues to grunt and babble on with mostly “eeehh”s and “oooh”s and the occasional D or B sound mixed in.
Today, in the middle of one training session, the boy stopped and very clearly said, “Ma. (pause) Ma.”
We were stunned. Wondering if it was a fluke, we pressed further.
We managed to get him to say it a few more times before the day was out, so we were very excited. Surely it means he knows that I’m his loving and caring mother and that I’ve sacrificed so much to take care of him and this is his way of showing his appreciation. Right?
