First Word

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Ladies and gentleman...

We have a first word.

Nora has been babbling for a while now. "Ba-ba-ba-ba." "Da-da-da-da." But she has never made the connection between one particular object or person and a word... until now.

Her first word is...

TESSA.
(That's right. The dog.)


In hindsight, it kind of makes sense, because Tessa is kinda... mischievous. Which means that she kinda-sorta gets, um, "corrected" a lot. Which involves a lot of hissing, "TESSA!" around here. So if there is one word that Nora hears a lot, it is "Tessa."

In some ways, this has been a wake up call for me. Because, well, this means Nora is listening to us. Like, really listening.

So.

Do they have a 12-step program to help someone give up cursing like a sailor?

Yay for her first word!!!!!!!!! Hopefully she'll say momma or dadda soon!

Wow, that is awesome! She's going to be a big talker, with a word already that early!

Thankfully Annie hasn't repeated any swear words just yet, and we really aren't watching our mouths either but I know the day is coming, and probably soon since she's a big time mimicker right now. Yikes...

I love that she giggles after she said it the first time!

I'm pretty sure my son's first word was "go-go"! Not mama, not dada...gogogogogogogogogo

I'm dying laughing. I mean falling over dying laughing. Tessa. /dead.

And if you figure out how to curb your truck driver habits, let me know. I'm pretty sure my kids' first word will be shit. Sigh.

Priceless! I can't wait to hear what's next on her list.

We're expecting our first in October and this mommy has a bit of a potty mouth too.

I legit laughed when I saw her first word was your dog's name. That will probably happen to us. Either that or "fuck". That is awesome.
