Not sure if it really is as big a deal as am I making it out to be..but for me it is huge. Probably the biggest milestone since Buzz took her first step.
Tonight as I was putting her to sleep, she said:
Mumaa nahin nini
Buzz has been talking up a storm lately and as I found out during our vacation, she speaks even more words than I knew, since she picked them up at daycare and never used them at home. But what makes today special is that she spoke her first complete sentence. Not words here and there but stringing a few words together in a way that they made sense.
So what if she was saying, she did not want to sleep. So what if she kept on at it till her eyes refused to stay open. So what if she was fighting sleep. So what if she forced herself to get up after she had been asleep for a few minutes to shorten her sentence to:
This is a huge deal for me. I can’t stop smiling, even though it has been a couple of hours since sleep finally took over for her. Today I am celebrating..err no you don’t get to ask with what, since I have been thinking about the how and where for the past hour and can’t come up with anything.. And no I will not let that bring me down. I am happy happy. That is what counts.
Aah 3 little words how I love thee
