Amelia loves Daddy!  When she is excited she says, “Dada!”  She runs (yes, she is practically running now) to greet him when he comes home from work with her arms wide open for a hug.  When I get her out of the crib in the morning, she says, “Dada!”  I’m not sure if she thinks that also means “mama” – (I have heard her say mama, but it is when she is in distress, or really wants me, not squealing with delight the way she says “dada”).  One of Amelia’s other “words” is “baba”, which she whispers and we’re not sure what she means by it.  However, “baba” does mean dad in Mandarin.

The other night she woke up and I got up to give her some milk.  Darryl also got up to go to the bathroom.  When Amelia saw Darryl, she was so excited she reached for him and only let “dada” feed her the bottle.  This is what happens every morning when she sees Daddy get up. 

I don’t feel bad.  I think it is adorable.  Plus, Kathryn has only wanted me lately!

The first picture is one morning when Kathryn put bibs on everyone – I’m wearing one too, but of course you can’t see it.  Those baby bibs are a tight fit around an adult neck!

How great that Amelia is excited about Daddy! Those girls are lucky to have such great parents!! Love the photo gallery!

Absolutely adorable girls. Can’t wait to see them again.

Was bib day from the last time we video chated with you guys? Looks familiar. Too cute that Amelia is so much a daddy’s girl. Ryan loves his daddy too but then again he sees Mommy ALL the time. Maybe she is not saying DADA but Da-Da… like yes yes in Russian? Remember how Ryan said Da all the time when we were there last summer?

Something to say?
