Babies’ first loves.


Last week:

Coconut:  aah?

Me: What, honey?

Coconut: Aaht?

Me: Yeah, okay, aaht.

Coconut: pointedly turns head and looks at cat. AACT?

Me: Yes! Yes, ‘cat’. That’s our kitty cat.

Coconut: Aaht?

A few days later, in the garden:

Coconut: Aaht? Very excited voice.

Me: I look around for our cat. Cat? Where’s our kitty? I don’t know if she’s outside, Coco.

Coconut: Aaht! Stares at squirrel and squeals. Aaht?

Today, sat in the chair next to cat tower:

Snort: tiny little contemplative voice. Aaaaah?

Me: Yes, that’s the cat. See the cat?

Snort:  at?

Me: Cat.

Snort: Cccccccccccccc……………………at?

Me: Yes, cat!

Snort: Cat.

Me: Cat!

Snort: Cat! Reaches out to try to pet the cat. Cat. Cat. Cat.

Me: You just said ‘cat’! You said ‘cat’.

Snort:  Cat? Cat.

    I think cat or kitty might be the most popular first word ever! They are so excited by these little things are similar in size to themselves and it is a relatively easy word. It’s so cute, isn’t it?

    Omg that’s so cute and amazing 🙂 I can’t wait for my daughter to decide it is time to talk with me (she’s 2, bless her).

    That is so cute!! I think Lily is trying to say Tandy (one of our cats) when she says Tee.

    On a side note, I have a question to ask you on your formspring, but now I can’t remember what it is! it was a good one too!

    My (feline) crew appreciates your children’s obviously early grasp of the important things in life. Like, say, cats.
