"Give them wisdom and devotion in the ordering of their common life, that each may be to the other a strength in need, a counselor in perplexity, a comfort in sorrow, and a companion in joy." -- The Book of Common Prayer
Poor Daisy. She's gone through four of these people. She's old and tired, bless her heart.
I have to admit it. Lauryn has said her first word, "Mama". From a logical standpoint I know that she's not developmentally ready to be talking, but this girl knows what she wants and she is not afraid to vocalize it. It's not a coincidence when she crawls up to me and says, "Mama" until I pick her up. Or when she's being fed by Daddy in her highchair and she cranes her neck around him to see me, chanting, "Mama" until I come over to feed her myself. She is absolutely her mama's girl.
