"Dada"

Tonight will just be a short blog because Sadie is super fussy (and sleep deprivation is starting to get to me).  It may be teething, it may be a tummy ache (she's kind of acting like her stomach hurts) but she is definitely fussy (and by fussy I mean: I have not slept in three nights).  

This morning, when she was not fussy, Sadie was watching Signing Time (a sign language DVD) from her exersaucer.  The last signs are the signs for Mommy and Daddy.  The Mommy sign comes on first and Sadie watched it on TV and then looked at me.  I repeated the sign and said "mama."  Sadie got a funny little smile on her face and looked at me for a second while I repeated "mama."  She opened her mouth and took a breath and I waited to hear what she was going to say.  Out came-

"Dadadadada!"  Then she smiled a little smile and said it a second time.  

I think Paul enjoyed hearing this news even more then Sadie enjoyed the surprised expression on my face when she said it.  It is definitely her word of the week.
