After several days of observation, I’m going to go ahead and give confirmation that Emerson’s first word has been spoken! Last week she was really going at it with the ‘Bbbbbb’ sounds and maybe even accomplished ‘Bob’ a time or two, but officially her first word is…. MOM! I heard it a few times last weekend but thought maybe it was a stretch to move her vocabulary out of the ‘jabber’ category into the ‘first words’ category. After a few days of repeatedly hearing ‘mommm mommm mommm mommm…’ I’m thrilled to say there is no question that she is saying ‘mom’! Even her dad cannot contest to this – his time will come too.
