I'm sure you guys have totally been on the edges of your seats, so I thought I'd give you a little update. My kid says words now. Real words. With intent. It was a pretty exciting day in the Nance household when my son pointed to the bananas (his favorite food in the whole wide world) and said "Nana!"

Had to let my mother down gently, though. She was confident that when he said "Nana" he was talking about her. Sorry, mom. But in the ongoing battle between fruit and grandma, fruit nearly always wins.

Anyway, I remember someone saying that once he did start talking, the floodgates would open and all of a sudden he'd have all kinds of words down. That person was right. I am happy to report that the following words are now part of his expanding repertoire:

Bubba (bubbles)
OHHHH (hello)
AYYYYY (like The Fonz)
MWAH (when he blows kisses)

Some of those are pretty weird, but I'll take it. I'm just thankful his first word wasn't some expletive as I had naturally assumed it would be based on my colorful vocabulary.

How about you guys? Any funny and/or weird first-ish words to share?

My kiddo started saying Hi BaBee instead of just Hi. She also loves pointing at anything she knows the word for, wherever we are. I am most proud of her use of VaVa (genitals).

We have a 17month old who has an obsession with the
"oo-wak" (iPhone or iPad)
"Nannies" bananas
"Oppl" Apple
"deep" Dip
"wa-wa" for any beverage in a sippycup
"bob" bottle
"LouLou" our dog Louie
"Goggy" our other dog Toby
"poop" (no translation required)

Sooo much fun hearing his new words but makes us realize we REALLY need to watch what we say;)
