My son was 6 months old and said "duck." Well, ok, it did sound more like "Duh" but trust me, he was going for duck. LOL! He *only* said it when in the tub and reaching for his favorite rubber duckie bath toy.
My daughter was also about 6 months old and she said "Mama." Yes, this is often just one of those babbling things that sounds like a word and I did wonder about it at first. However, she ONLY used it when she saw me enter a room, when she wanted me to do something for her (pick her up, hold her, feed her, etc) or when she couldn't see me and wanted me. A week or so of hearing it on that limited basis and we decided it was safe to call it a word. LOL! Her second word came a few weeks later. She said "Baba" for brother. She adores her brother. LOL!
