  • He was just under 3 months when he said "want milk" which was his first word/sentence. I was pretty gobsmacked so I said "what did you just say?" and he repeated himself. I said "OK then" and he put his arms up and started doing that lip smacking thing. He definitely knew what he was saying! He was a very early talker though, way ahead of the curve on that front.

  • My daughters first word was "gentle" because I always said "be gentle"....I think she was 9 months.

  • I swear my daughter's first "word" (though not a word) was blowing. My mom has windchimes and she would point and blow and next thing know my daughter is doing it to. One day I had her on the changing table and she pointed to one and blew and I couldn't figure it out at first but when I realized, it occured to me that it was technically her first word. :) I don't recall the age. She said dada and mama and ish (fish) and itz (fritz our dog) fairly early. The first word I remember her clearly saying without being asked was "marble" our neighbors dog. She ran across the street and my daughter said it. I was shocked! What a waste of a first word, calling the *neighbor*s dog :)

  • my daughter was 6 months old when she said "dad" she totally bypassed "dada" and said "dad" one day when she was sitting in her bouncy chair and he walked by.

  • Both of kids said "kitty" around 10 1/2 months. They aren't early talkers by any means. Sorry, but unless I see it I can't believe a 3 month old spoke a word/sentance. :)

  • His first word was Mama at 6 months, I was so proud. But I think he really meant boob! Because I stopped breastfeeding at 11 months and he stopped saying it! LOL
