What I love most though is the babbling, he's at that very special point where he's shifting from the random sounds to strings of babble, those first sounds that will eventually turn into words. And of course the first string of babble 'dadadadad'. Not once in four children has that babble been 'mumumum' despite the fact it's easier to say, despite the fact that he would hear it at least 1000 times a day as his Muddy Sisters call it out for this or that or just because. Despite all that he's babbling 'dadadad' and Muddy Hubby is walking around proud as punch.
It is special this time, it won't be long and he'll be calling out 'MUM' along with the rest of them and I'll be wishing him back to this time when he's babbling away with a 'dadadad'. I'm waiting though, just waiting, for that very special first word, no matter what it may be. I have a sneaking suspicion though it might be 'tractor', I could have sworn it almost came out of his mouth the other day, clear as anything, I think he's been spending a bit of time with his Dad!

Do you remember your little one's first words or even your own?
