Little Man (8 months) has said his first word and it was "Mama".
He's been making the sound 'mama' for a couple of months now but there was no suggestion at all that he was actually linking that sound to me. Now there is!
For about a week now, he's been saying it to get my attention. If I leave the room, he crawls after me shouting "Mama, Mama". If I put him down when he wants to be held, he cries and says "Mama". If he needs my attention for anything really.... It's a wonderful, wonderful sound.
