Last week Angelo turned 17 months. He's starting to really try to talk and knows quite a few words -- all but one. See if you notice the word he hasn't said yet when reviewing his current vocab.

Did you find it? If you said Mama's missing you're right! I'm starting to get a complex. He can crow like a rooster but doesn't say Mama! ha! When we ask him who I am he points at me and says Dada! So at least I get a name! Last night I sang Mama, Mama, Mama to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle. I thought maybe I'd ingrain it in his brain before bed. Alas, this morning I was still Dada! The good news is he seems to be learning a word a day - hopefully I'll make the cut soon!
