Kisses for mommy and grilled cheese sandwiches!

Bailey was giving kisses today! It was the sweetest thing in the whole world! I was at home for lunch and I leaned down in front of her and she leaned in and gave me a big open mouthed baby kiss! It was all slobbery...the kind of kiss only a mom can appreciate :) I had to get like 5 more before I would leave to go back to work. She had been kissing herself in the mirror lately, but hadn't given anyone else kisses before...and I was the first! Which was nice, considering she still hasn't said mama...she says dada all day long and all kinds of other little words...but no mama. I do think we're getting closer. She jibber jabbers all day long now! For lunch I had a grilled cheese sandwich and shared some with Bailey, and she loved it! After every bite she was making the funny sound she does when she's excited. I let her try to actually bite off of the sandwich...that went ok. She would finally slobber it enough that she could break a little off into her mouth. Last night she ate corn and a few baked beans. She's finally getting a lot better at eating table food.

Nicole,
Ella didn't say mama for a while either. Dada was her favorite for a long time! So don't get your feelings hurt! It took Ella a while to get good at table food too. She still gags sometimes but has gotten over the texture issue! Bailey sounds like she's learning so much--we can't wait for our play date! See you soon!
