The toddler started saying “Dada” months and months ago. Don’t ask me how long exactly, as the scrapbooks are still packed.
He only started consistently saying “Mama” about a month ago — at 16 months.
And GET THIS: he ONLY says it when he’s pissed off and/or super cranky.
Never a happy little “Mama!” to accompany his happy little “Dada”s.
Nope, only …
To make matters even more unfair, he only signs “Daddy.” Not “Mommy.”
A recent example:
ME (while tucking him into his crib at bedtime): Sweet dreams, baby. I love you more than anything.
TODDLER: *blinks up at me* *signs “Daddy”*
