Val Says Mama...err something like it!

I finally heard it for myself after never ending days of DA DA DA & PA PA PA those lovely sounds that every mother longs to hear from the mouths of babes, MA MA MA My dear sweet Valentina has decided to wrap her mom around her little finger by saying those lovely words. Please allow me to indulge myself. Of course I know she has no idea what she's saying. But part of my likes the idea that my daughter is calling me for once. As well as the ability to finally see the smirk on Jorge's face melt when his daughter now calls MEEEEE her mother. The person who's at her beckon call day and night.
I always did share a different bond with Val. You see my little peanut was the smallest of the two. She was only 4lbs when she was born. And she had a very special place in my belly. A spot that caused days upon days of painful agony! Val was a breech baby laterally positioned towards the right side of my belly. You could literally see a large round bulge the size of a grapefruit stick out of my right side near my armpit. I really thought one day she would actually crack one of my ribs that's how bad the pain was. She was so wedged in there in fact that when they were trying to deliver her they had to kind of scoot her down similar to when you're trying to get the last of the toothpaste in the tube. Yes, just like that! They couldn't even turn her around to get her out head first so she was delivered breech. Her birth was pretty incredible because of how long it took to get her out of the small nook she created for herself in my womb. Throughout my pregnancy there was never any doubt when she moved & when she stayed perfectly still. I guess this was her way of say thanks mom for all you went through with me...aahhh. At least in my mind. All that to say my little girl can say "ma ma" :)
