A new monumental event happened in our house two days ago (yes, we have them often): Amara said her first word at the age of 6.5 months. "Dada" came out of her little mouth after Ron picked her up. He immediately grew about three feet taller as he began to shout "did you hear that? She just said 'dada!' Say it again, Amara, say 'dada!'" to which she began to eagerly say it again and again. Since then, we've began playing games such as ones that involve us pointing to Ron and her responding by saying "dada." This may be the proudest moment in a daddy's life.
What were your childrens' first words, and how old were your babies when they started talking?
