It's been awhile! I need to write more often so I can look back on this and remember the good times. Before I know it she'll be a teenager and is about to move out with her looser boyfriend. Anyway . . . .
On most nights around the time Embrie starts to get fussy or 9pm, whichever comes first, it's time to take a bath and get ready for bed. Embrie LOVES bathtime. Now that she's older she sits up and plays where her bath toys while the water is running and will do that for 20-30 minutes. Ever since before she was allowed in the tub she's been in the bathtub almost every night (I guess newborns are not supposed to take baths because of water getting into their undeveloped ears). After the bath I wrap her in a towel and she moves her arms and looks like a bat to me so I started singing the "Batman!" song to her. She doesn't move her arms like a bat anymore but the song stuck. "Na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN! BATMAN! BATMAN! BATMAAAAAAN!"
This past Sunday night I put her in the towel and started singing the song like I have for the past 7 months or so (she's almost 8 months now!) and she was shaking her head (I shake my head back and forth during the na na na na part) and then when I stopped to say "BATMAN!" she also said Batman! I couldn't believe it. So I started again and she did it again! I tried to call Sarah in and show her but she was busy. And of course, Embrie wouldn't do a repeat performance no mater how many times we sung the song while Mommy was looking.
I know I don't have evidence or proof but that's how these things go. Anyway, mark it down . . . her first word was BATMAN.
