Caleb was exactly 7 months old when he uttered his first word, Mama. Perhaps it was just an accident during a regular babbling session, but I counted it and it became an oft repeated word for him. From that time on, he has never ceased the chattering, even during sleep.
This morning, Piper, now 7 months old, said her first word: Dada. I've told Jes over and over that I've finally birthed a child for him, this just is another thing to prove it. I guess this means we have another talker on our hands. It will be a loud next few years!
