What was your child's first word and when did they say it?
I think it was ball, around age 2. He said a handful of b words before ever saying mama or dada! He actually just started calling me Mommy after calling me Mom for years! He often leaves off ending sounds. Oh and he said "Johnny" before Mom or Dad, too.
D said "duck" when he was 9 months old when I was reading a duck book to him. I can't remember LO's very first word, but I do remember shopping with him when he was 9 months old and he pointed at the display and yelled "Avocado!". Everyone around us stopped and stared LOL. LO learned BabySign because we used if with D and he was signing before he talked. Does that count as a first word? :) When he had surgery at 7 months he was furiously signing "Milk" while we were in the waiting room.
my oldest son was kitty and shoe about 10 months
my youngest son was ball at 18 months
my oldest daughter (by a minute, lol) I would have to look in a book for what word it was but was about 18 months
my little daughter is 5 and we're still waiting to hear her first. Her giggle is adorable though!
dd1 - "pocka pocka pocketbook" - 7 months...she's a smarty pants lol
dd2 - "baby" about 8 months.
dada - 21/2ish i think
Katy said dada around 9 months I think. Jacob said hi around 18 months.
dada and yes . dada was at 6 months and yes was at 8 months but that was all he said till he was almost 3.
