Mama???

Every parent waits with much anticipation for their son or daughter to utter their first words. Each secretly hoping it is in reference to them
(i.e. - Mama or Dada).

Well Rich was up 2-0 as both Skyler and Blake said “Dada” first. Notice, I used the verb was indicating past tense. Of course not to gloat but Victoria (Tori) put me on the score board when she blurted out “Mama” first. That’s my girl!

The best part is she not only said “Mama” first she drove it home by calling Rich, “Mama” as well. Did I mention—that’s my girl?!

We all chuckle when daddy arrives home and Tori hauls off down the hallway hurdling herself in his arms (she adores her daddy) while yelling, MAMAAAAA.

That’s my girl!

She is beautiful...I think she looks like a blonde, blue eyed Skylar! I wish you were all still close...also, you should be even more thrilled because isn't Dada easier to say than Mama? If so, then that means your girl didn't take the easy route :)

Hi Michelle! This is Rachel -- a former intern of yours. I can't believe there are 3 little Franzens! I remember babysitting Skylar as a baby. She was so easy, so scheduled and such a sweet girl. Your children are all beautiful! Congratulations. :)
