My baby’s first word was her brother’s name. Well, a baby-ese version of his name since his name is loaded with r- and ch-sounds that are too hard for babies to say. But I take it as a testament to her life and her priorities that her first word was her older brother’s name. She loves him more than just about anything so it makes sense. She also hears his name a lot as I repeat it a million times a day to try and get him to pay attention when I’m talking, but that’s another issue altogether.
The other words she’s picked up include typical early baby talk like ball and bye and doggie. She has about half a dozen words now and hearing her say them is just so cute! (Mama is not one of her words. I’m guessing she’ll learn that one sometime after she picks up, “Hey you,” and, “Chopped Liver.” Not that I’m bitter or anything.)
I asked around for other cute first words and my readers on Facebook and Twitter shared some adorable stories. Click through to read them all!
