James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Eight? Ate? or Eat?

For a couple of weeks now, Wyatt has been roaming around and occasionally babbling and the "et" has been coming out.  I'd question him and say,"Eat? Do you want some food?  Eat?"  Or "Ate?  Did you just eat?  You ate some food?" Or "Eight?  Are there eight of something?"

Then this weekend all three of us were playing around on James' and my bed and I was counting something out, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7...." and out of no where and without prompting, Wyatt helped and said "Eight!" very clearly before I could.

We were shocked and oh so excited at the same time.  I did it once more to confirm that he just did that in context correctly and he did!  Yea buddy!  So proud!  So, of course I got out my phone and recorded him doing it again!

We've since added "te" which he says in the tens place!  And he'll recognize the letter "B".

Progress is progress and we are grateful for every stride being made by our little miracle!  PTL!!!
