You know that feeling when you hear your baby's first words? When that tiny, innocent, beautiful voice speaks understandable words for the first time it's like a song. It's clearly the cutest voice any baby has ever had in the entire history of speaking babies, and you prod him to say the new word a million times. Every time he says his new word, your heart swells.
Yep. When AJ came downstairs this morning and said "hi" to me, I have no doubt it was the most beautiful sound any child has ever uttered. And I bet there isn't a mom who would disagree with me.
Most 5-year-olds are talking their moms' ears off by now. Most moms of 5-year-olds are just trying to get them to give their voices a rest. Not this mom.
