BaBa Baby

The other day I mentioned that I have another blog (private) to and for Lovie... here's another snippet (posted just moments ago):

I'm getting it down... just in case.

The past several days, I've noticed you saying "BaBa" very clearly when talking to me- or when you're upset (in the crib wanting out, on the changing table). I don't know what it was exactly but it dawned on me that I thought you were saying something- that "BaBa" meant something to you and not 'bottle' and not just sounds you were making.

You've been saying "Dada" and the like ("Dadadadada Dada Dadadadadadadada") since Father's Day, but we still don't think you mean Daddy when you say it (though there have been a handful of times lately when maybe that is what you mean). But this BaBa??

I suspect it means... ME!! I think you're saying Mama only it's coming out BaBa because you haven't done any M sounds.

I could be totally wrong, but earlier today you woke at 445 and were crying out and BaBa could be heard. When I came in you were all smiles and clung to me like saran wrap not saying anything, not making any sounds. Then when I laid you down to change you, again you cried, "BaBa!" and looked right at me. I calmly and softly told you I loved you and you looked at me and smiled- like I figured it out and you were happy I had done so.

Of course I could be DREAMING all this in my head, and be way off... and if I am, so be it. But, just in case we come to discover that BaBa is
Love you!

So I'm totally dreaming, aren't I? There's no way my 9 month old (tomorrow) is talking already, is there? I mean, yes, she does say Kitty Cat (not including the K, C, T) whenever she sees either cat and she's been making other sounds and babbles for months and months but this BaBa?? I'm dreaming, right?


  1. Sounds like communication to me and not too early for it to be a fluke. :-)

  2. Hi I am Nicole from I found you through Wordless Wednesday and wanted to drop by and say hi. I really like your blog, and am now a new follower. I would love to have you stop by Colie’s Kitchen if you get a chance.

  3. No one would know better than you, so if you think that's what she means, you're probably right. She's so sweet, I think you're right too. :)


speak your mind.
