This morning Leif woke up at 5:30 am. That was too early for me. The cats had woke Holly up just prior and she took Leif out to start their day. I re awoke at 7 am. As I walked out of the room, I saw Holly and Leif crawling on the floor towards the bedroom. “We were just crawling in to surprise you”, Holly told me. Leif was in a good mood and giggling and smiling. Holly stood up and picked up Leif and he looked at me and said “Dada” all cute like with his hand extended in my direction. It was so cute. Holly followed with, “Who’s that Leif?” And he happily replied with his hand still extended towards me, “Dada”. D’aaawwwwww. So cute. I think that passes as his first word.
