Good Morning Humble Readers...

Sometimes God knows just what we need. 

I was having a sort of off morning.  Some of my bigger fears for the Halfling were bubbling to the surface this morning and I was just feeling very anxious about everything.  I actually had a bit of a cry while I was in the shower this morning (wretched pregnancy hormones). 

But then, while I was feeding Ginny breakfast, I was given a huge gift. 

Some of you may recall that I have been concerned about Ginny's lack of vocabulary.  She knows what a lot of things are (we say the word and she points), but she hasn't actually said a whole lot of words.  One of the biggest absences in her vocabulary, the one word I have been longing for her to say, is Mum.  She's used the 'mum' syllable in her babbles for quite some time, but she's never used it with purpose. 

This morning she did. 

She reached out her hand and patted my (ginormous) belly, looked me straight in the eye, and said "Mum". 

And then she patted my arm and said it again. 

Like I said, sometimes God knows just what we need.


  1. Awe! Making me cry lady! So sweet.

  2. Perfection. :)

    I am so very happy for you, sweet friend...and yes, I absolutely believe He knows what we need and when we need it, even if we don't see it coming. And there go my stupid pregnancy hormones. ;) Crying here, too...happy tears!

  3. Oh that is just the sweetest thing ever.

  4. Awww, that's so awesome :)

    I swear, the first time that Ruby ever says, "I love you" I might just keel over and die!

  5. Awesome moment.

    Mum Mum Mum....Yay Ginny!
