Big Weekend!

We had quite the eventful weekend here in Hampton's world! I heard him "talking" on Saturday morning after his first nap, and when I went in to get him, he was sitting up in his crib entertaining himself. I thought it was a fluke or he used the crib bars to help get himself up (which was unlikely since he was in the middle of the mattress, but I was in denial, ok?!). Well, he did it again yesterday morning for me and Jordan and a few more times since! Such a big boy! YAY! And, uh oh...!

Last night, he said "bye" and...wait for it..."mama"!! Oh, talk about making your heart melt. I thought I was going to cry right then and there. Of course, mom and I heard him say it, and we both squealed with delight and kept trying to get him to say it again, bu tin response he giggled and buried his head in his arms. Cutie pie :)

He also went in the pool for the first time. We didn't take a real swim b/c the water was WAY too cold (thanks to dad putting in some fresh water that morning). But he got to enjoy being on the first step and just splashing around for a few minutes. Mom and I went to BRU to get him a float, a plastic baby pool, and some pool toys. We were much more excited than him! He seemed to really enjoy being outside, which is a huge sigh of relief for me, because we spend a lot of time out by the pool during the summer!

Don't forget to get your entries in for the cloth diaper giveaway. It ends tomorrow!

Both of my kiddo's loved the excersaucer. I had a hard time getting rid of it there were so many good memories!
I love that first mama...and then even better mommy!
