Dear A.,

Today you made us very happy.
We were having breakfast at McDonald's. We were talking to you, telling you what we were having. 
A few minutes into our chat, you had this big grin on your face and you blurted out "mama? papa?" 
What did you just say? We couldn't believe our ears!
Our pretty little caterpillar babbled her first ever "mama and papa!"
Sure, I know those were indiscriminate babbles but hey--they are the sweetest babbles ever!
Daddy and I are very ecstatic!!! We're still grinning from ear to ear as I write this.
