Tonight, as Kathy and I were heading into the dining room for dinner, Kathy was holding Juliette and I walked beside them. Jules started babbling, as she often does. "Ba brrr nng brrrrrrrr." And then she looked at me, giggled, rocked back and forth, and opened her mouth again.

"Da da da da da dadda dadda dadda dadda."

And my heart melted. But, you know, the good kind of melting, not the kind where you have to call the hospital.

It's a bit of a stretch to say that she's said her first word, I think. But maybe. Just maybe.

We tried to get video of it, but she won't do it when the camera is on. Seriously, we tried to take video of her and it wasn't until we turned the camera off that she started again. So we turned it back on, and she stopped until it was off again. But believe me. It happened. Ask Kathy.

Jules TV - Episode 8: Follow the Leader

So in the last two days, Jules has gotten really good at looking at what people around her are doing and then trying to do the same thing. So below, I give you two examples, one from Friday night (3/11) and one from this afternoon 3/12).

Friday Night:

This afternoon:

Also, today we went to a play date with a lot of other kiddos. Mom and Jules hung out with all the other moms and babies, while I joined the two other fathers who were there in the basement. We played first person shooter video games on X-Box 360 which are totally NOT my favorite types of games. I think that may have been the only type of games they had, though, so I toughed it out. Next time, maybe I'll play with the kids instead.

After the play date, lunch and a nap, we went for a nice walk.

Another good and busy day for Jules! Tomorrow, we of course have to adjust our schedules to accommodate the start of Daylight Savings Time. Boo hiss.

How cute is too cute?
