Matilda says Dada and Papa. It melts my heart. She has been babbling da-da-da-da for a few months, but didn't start saying it with meaning until this week. Tyler practices with her any chance he gets. When she whispers Papa it is so sweet, and is always followed by a big smile.

Matilda seems huge all of a sudden. She is clearly not my little baby anymore. I love this stage; her eyes are always twinkling with wonder and curiosity. I am excited for her to learn and grow. I look forward to hearing her speak and wonder what funny things she will say. And now that her hair is starting to come back, I am eager to know what it will look like. We are blessed to watch her grow; we have not forgotten that.
