Two Milestones in One Day!

Connor is growing so fast I can barely keep up! Yesterday he made two milestones in one day!

The first one was rolling from his back to his belly. He's been rolling from belly to back since he was 2 months old, but he HATES tummy time for anything but sleeping so I wasn't sure he'd EVER go the other way...but yesterday he did! He was on the bed in Mom's guest bedroom when he did it. I scared Mom to death by screaming for her in excitement. She thought something was wrong!

Then he decided it was time to say his first word. He'd been playing with consonants all day, saying things like bababa and dadada. Mom was trying to steer him towards Mama or Nana, but he wasn't having any of it! He was babbling along and she interrupted him with "Nana! Say Nana!" He looked her right in the face and in a loud, clear voice said "Dada!" Oh, that boy of mine has a mind of his own!

I am so proud of him I could just burst!

It does make me a little sad for him that there isn't a father in his life to be all puffed up and happy that Dada was his first word. I suppose it is what it is, though.
