Kayleigh said her very first word last week, at only 5 1/2 months old! I had been practicing “Mama” with her for quite some time now. I think I started repeating it to her when she was only a few weeks old.
Whenever I would lay her down on the changing table to change her diaper, I would keep her pre-occupied by practicing it with her. There have been many times over the last couple of months when she was crying out, and I swore I heard her cry “Mama”.
Last week, however, there was absolutely no doubt that she had said it! She started saying it once here, once there, and now she’s saying it over and over again!
I am so proud of my baby girl! She is also verrrry close to saying “Hi” and we are also practicing “Daddy”.
