  • My daughter was eight months and said MOTE for her first word-- I was trying to get her to say byby but somehow mote came out. She was so serious too... I think it's because she always grabs the remote and i tell her what it is... maybe? I say that's her first word because within the next month she said Mama, Ennah (for Benner), Gama (grandma), and papa (grandpa)'s CRAZY!!!!!

  • 1...13 months and it was "stitch" (as in Lilo and Stitch)
    2...15 months and it was "Dada"
    3...23 months and it was "Hi"

    They made sounds that kind of sounded like words before this, but it wasn't consistent and had no meaning. They "da da da da" for quite some time, but it wasn't specifically to their dad, so we don't count that.
