this cracks me up

One of the great advantages of having two children widely separated in age is that we have an extra memory for the second one's infancy. Though sometimes Mark and I forget which child did what, Mariah remembers all kinds of things about Nick that we have forgotten.

One is that he used to have trouble with the letter "m." Of course this was something Mariah was concerned with. She used to try to get him to say an initial "m" whenever she could. He had a lot of trouble with "milk," for example, always calling it "nilk." As Mariah recently reminded us, she used to say to him, "ma-ma-ma-milk!"

And he would echo, proudly, "ma-ma-ma-nilk!"

Gorgeous pictures! I applauded at a distance but wish I had been there to sample it all! I've added a new blog to my site and Tony says it would make it easier to find if you added a link to me from you. Can you do that?

I'm adding the link now, Dad. Nice picture!

Nice. Reminds me how my little sister used to have difficulty with an initial "s." So she would call me Pam. She'd say, "Ssssssss-Pam!"
