I missed a first.
The first first that I’ve missed. And it is a cute one.
I was there when he smiled, giggled, said “mama,” “baby,” crawled, walked, and did every other milestone. I got to see the first time of everything. But not this time.
Last night, while I was having a lovely dinner with my Mother, Alex started saying “hello.” Like Horton.
But the cuteness? That stems from the fact that Alex can’t yet say his “L” sound. So when Zach says, “Helloooo” to Alex, Alex returns in the exact same intonation, “Herrooo!”
I’ve been making him say it all. day. long. Herrooo!
