"Words"

Are you babies saying anything or trying to say anything yet?

Teagan says dada all day long but it's not directed at DH. Everything is dada. So, I'm not counting that one. We've been trying to get her to say doggy and kitty and she'll say dawdy and titty (hehe) when prompted. I'm still not counting them as first words though because they haven't come out without prompting.

he says dada a lot. i'm not really counting it as a first word, but he babbles dadadadadda all the time and sometimes he will look at a person and say softly "dada" and it is different from the babbling because he is usually yelling lol. one time the three of us were lying in bed and he turned to dh and put his hand on dh's face and said quietly "dada" sweetest thing EVER!!! pretty sure dh melted.

THIS. Emma says dadadada all the time but there are times when she wakes up and we both go in to get here and she looks right at him and in the sweetest little baby girl voice she softly says, "Dada" and smiles. My husband practically melts into a puddle.

Aiden likes to call me Da Da All. The. Time. He never does it to DH! Just babbles to him. He says a great Mama, but only does it when he's upset. We're not counting them as words until he shows true meaning of them. It is awfully cute to listen to him babble now though. He says, "hey" and "hi" a lot, but once again he doesn't truly understand what he's saying. lol.

He most defiantly says "Mama" when he wants me. But he also babbles "Dada" all day long. He says all sorts of things in his babbling "yeah" "hi" "el-oh" I count "Mama" as his first word as he always says it directed at me, un-prompted.

DS1 never even uttered mama or dada until he was 18 months old and then I had to ask him to say them

Rowan babbles mamamama when she's in a talkative mood. No dadas yet.

When she's really upset, she yells "Mad!!" I think to her, it's just a sound she makes, but it's really funny. She scrunches up her face, screams "mad" and then glares at me, waiting me to fix whatever it is she's upset about.

LOL!!! This is a cute thread! Simon also says dada all day long and also does the whispering dada too!! He one time said it when DH went to get up after a nap, but like you ladies, I dont think he really knows the meaning of it.

He also said what sounded like cookie once, but again, just by chance.

He said mama on mothers day but not since. I guess that was my present. Lol

Ronin babbles Dada, but I am not counting it until he associates it with his Daddy. Often whenhe babbles it I'll say "where's Daddy, Daddy's at work" to try to build the association for him. He babbled something that sounded like Grandad at the hospital the other day, we all turned because it sounded so much like it, and it made Grandfather smile. He will also say amama when he is sad and crying.

Owen is content with blowing farty raspberries for the time being. He mumbles a lot, and says all sorts of funny stuff when he's mad, but nothing intentional yet.

Odin says mama & dada with intent. He also says nana when he wants to nurse. I'm pretty suprised that he does already & not just those sounds in babbling.

Charlie babbles all the time, but when she's in a pissy mood it's DADADADADA! LOL She does the whispery thing too, but mostly just SCREAMS.
