a talk with Eden...


me: "Eden, say Momma."

Eden: "Dadda."

Me: "no, Eden say MOMMA."

Eden: "DADDA."

Me: "MOMMMMM-MA."

Eden: (looks me straight in the eye, big grin on her face.) "Dadda."

*sigh*

I had a very similar conversation with my daughter this morning. I love this picture!

Amanda said...

My daughter did the very same thing when she was younger. And now she says momma and I can't get her to stop saying it...over and over again. Haha

Jenn said...

hee hee...I taught Sam to say Dada first! That way if he cries out in the middle of the night I can roll over and say, "how sweet, he's calling for you!" Works like a charm ;)

take a bow Jenn

Ooooh Jenn, you are so smart!

Celeste said...

I love how she "knew it" too - she knew she wanted you to say Momma...! :) Sounds like she's a Daddy's girl...maybe? Well, I'm definitely a daddy's girl, not a bad thing to be! LOL
And - 9 months! Wow. Just think - you carried her for 9 months...and now you've been carrying her (in your arms) for another 9! :D

My goodness, she is adorable! My lady seems to hollar for Dadda even more when she's unhappy with me.

9 months! My DD is 11 1/2. She still barely says, "Mumm mumm" and I come running like, "Hey-- She wants me!" lol. It's always Dada or Bye bye :)

gina said...

lol. I had the same conversation with every one of mine. What a cutie! :)

Katie said...

My son did the same thing to me, and so we turned it into a game. I'd say, "Say Mama." He'd say, "Dada." Then I'd say, "Nooo, say Mama." Then he'd giggle and say, "Dada!"

Katy said...

That picture is totally frameable...oh my goodness!!! I miss my kiddos being that small! She is a doll!!! :)

I can't believe she is 9 months already! How the time flies!!!

haha...i was just going to say something similar to jenn's comment...don't worry, when it's 3 am and she's wanting some cuddle time, she'll say mama with amazing clarity. ;)
