I sat with Oaklynn in the rocking chair this morning cuddling with her for about 10 minutes and tried to get her to say "mama". I would say it to her and move my lips slow to show her how to do it. She would then start to breath really heavy and rock back and forth (she does this when you ask her to do something). I could see she was thinking very hard and trying to say it. I kept saying "mama" to her. (She has never said "mama" after I have asked her to. She will say it while crying every once and a while but it's rare.) She looked at me and said "dad". I laughed and said, "Good job! Now can you say mama?" I continued saying it to her and a minute later she said "papa". I laughed again and said, "now how about mama. Can you say mama? That would make mama SOO happy". She started breathing hard again and rocking back and forth. I could see her thinking harder than before. Then all of the sudden she said, "mmmmmmmmmmm". Then she looked at me with a BIG smile.
