There are many of us that share the same first word honoring our fathers, “da da.” However, I am very curious to know what other first words were uttered that surprised a parent and lead to a fabulous story.
According to the Baby Center, at 4 to 6 months ”your child will start to babble, combining consonants and vowels (such as “baba” or “yaya”). The first “mama” or “dada” may slip out now and then. Though it’s sure to melt your heart, your baby doesn’t equate those words with you quite yet. That comes later, when he’s almost a year old.”
It’s fascintaing to imagine the moment you took a chance and formed your first word. Even though it was more of a sound/repeating what your parents said or encouraged, your brain and mouth were taking the very first verbal step.
What was your first word?
