Sophie's First Word

Since our son was a very quiet kid for the first two-and-a-half years of his life, except for the occasional "Buh" (which meant ball, boat, bird, balloon and, okay, pretty much everything else), I've been especially interested in the sounds Sophie has been making lately. I've been wondering if she'll be an early talker, as the experts say girls usually are. For several weeks there it was just "Da-da-da" and "Quack-quack-quack". But then she started trying new sounds every few days, and on her birthday she actuallly said her first word! We've all continued to hear it frequently this past week, so there's no denying it. Yes, it's a real word, one she hears often, and it also just happens to be the name of her favorite person in the world: "Jack".

As a lover of both language and children, it's always a delight to hear of first words - REAL first words.:) Yea, Sophie!
