in the last week, holden's vocabulary has just exploded. suddenly, he is repeating every single thing we say (meaning we need to be extra careful about the things we say which is probably just a good life lesson). he started saying cool! and ohhhhh man, but the best words he has started saying are our names. while daddy and mommy used to be "baba", last friday he started actually saying daddy and mama and it is probably the most heart melting thing he has done yet. i'm pretty sure that he could get away with just about anything in the entire world by saying that word. and even though it's only been a few days, i can barely remember when he didn't say it.
