My son hates to sit on his own. It is a rare occasion that he will sit in his swing without complaining. Normally it isn't a big deal when I am home because my wife and I can take turns holding him. But at this moment we both needed a break so Malachi had to deal. He started to whine and I looked at him and and asked, "What is your problem?" He looked me in the eyes and replied, "Da Da." Needless to say I did not make him stay in his seat much longer.
Technically he kinda said "Da Da" yesterday and followed very quickly with "Ma Ma" but this is the first time he seemed to really want to communicate something.
And yes, his feet really are that big. All the Matteson's have abnormally large feet.
