fmf: listen

Today's prompt: Listen


I have yet to discover a better way to wake up than to listen to my baby girl toddler babbling in her crib. Hearing random words interjected into syllables of nonsense babbling makes my morning, even if it is 5:00 am. "Doo da baby puppy ack ba goo goo up mommy bee ba!" I could listen for hours. Except that it usually only lasts a few minutes before she's done talking to herself and is ready for some human interaction. And that's fine with me! As much fun as it is to listen to her babble, it's way more fun to listen to her talking to me. "Mama up!" or "Honey, honey, mommy, honey!" are some of my favorite sounds. Yes, that's right. She calls me honey. Hubby and I have decided that we need to be more intentional about calling each other mom and dad. Though it is pretty darn cute to hear her little 16 month old voice calling me honey! I guess it goes to show just how much she listens to what is going on around her. She really does pick up words at an alarming rate!


I realize it's not actually Friday anymore, but between work, a wedding, and family visiting yesterday, the blog kind of got neglected. Better late than never, right?

Five Minute Friday

  1. Hi Andrea...stopping in from fmf. (I didn't get to mine on Friday either...absolutely better late than never :)

    What a precious little picture of what it's like to wake to those little sounds. It's good for me to think back, as my youngest is 8 and most of the sounds I hear from him lately are arguments with his brother!

    Thanks for the reminder!
