Mark it on your calendars, folks, Miss Willa has spoken her first word at the tender age of 6 3/4 months! Yes, I know it is hard to believe. Can you guess what her first word was? "Mama." John didn't believe me at first, but then she did it again while he was watching, and he had to concede. We're not talking about a babbling string of "mamamamamama"s but a clear, succinct, two-syllable "mama" while smiling up at me. Thank you, Willa, I will have fun holding this over your Dad for awhile!
