For the last month or so, I have regularly been awakened by the call “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy-Dow” coming from Adelaide’s room. Depending on the time, I am sometimes extremely annoyed by this summon. But some mornings, I think it’s the most beautiful sound. “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy,” she calls. “Mommy-Dow, Mommy-Dow.” I can only assume this means Mommy Down (?), my daughter calling for me to be the first person who greets her in the morning, the first person or thing that comes to mind when she awakens. However, this could just as likely be a call for Tim. She calls him “Mommy” just about as often as she calls him “Daddy.”
UPDATE: Adelaide is pretty good about saying “Daddy” now. I wrote the above a couple of weeks ago.
