And his first word is…
Itty! As in, “Itty, stop running away from me. I want to clench your fur in my hands and rip it out!”
It was only one time, but we count [k]itty as our almost one-year-old boy’s first word because he used it in a contextual situation with our cat. He has experimented with saying “Papa,” but only whispering it as he tries to tackle the “P” sound, and never in the context of trying to get my attention.
Mostly the kid doesn’t babble much, like he has no need for it. But once in a while he surprises us. He’s on track or ahead on his other milestones. So, it’s a waiting game. What were your child’s first words?
