The day Malachi said "mama"

I've been wondering about Malachi's speech recently, especially as both Jeremiah and Isaac had speech therapy when they were younger (although Isaac had speech therapy for feeding issues rather than speech).  He's been saying Dada for a while now and making noises and of course there is always one child at toddler group who is speaking in sentences at this age.

But yesterday he said mama for the first time.  And today he keeps saying it and looking very pleased with himself.  Jeremiah and Isaac have been trying to get him to say their names but he can't manage that yet.
