Right now, in my life, there are three new babies and three more on the way. This weekend, I went and visited my nephew. He is 4 1/2 months and just the sweetest little guy. While his parents and I were trying to get him to say his first word for about 10-15 minutes, his mom had to go to the bathroom. The Dad and I were chatting and all of a sudden we hear "mama". I freaked out, the dad froze and was shocked and the mom kept yelling "what?". We told her what happened but agreed, it does not count until she hears it. The experience had me wondering about the most commonly spoken first words for babies. How old was your baby when they said their first word? What was it? Did YOU hear it?
