"Ma" = Progress!
Just when I was starting to let my imagination get the best of me, Ethan decided it was time to drop the "Ma" bomb. Of course I didn't actually witness it, but those who did were pretty excited and described the scenario several times.
It happened during a speech therapy session. I'm almost always at his sessions, watching from the next room so he isn't distracted by my presence. On this particular day I had decided to go down the hall to the gym and walk on the treadmill. The gym I belong to is literally in the same building, a short walk away. Since he's in therapy 3 times a week it seems okay to go get a workout once in awhile. I mean what am I going to miss?
I missed him signing the word mom and saying "Ma" over and over.
It's sort of Little House on the Prairie, maybe we should teach him to say Pa as well. Until then, Ma needs to loosen her bonnet strings and relax.
