The word is “ba”

Vocalisation comes at a young age. Mostly it’s inarticulate vowel sounds. Every so often, you’ll get a glottal sound mixed in there, but the cooing is rarely little more than “ayooooeeiioaaaaaaauuuueeee” in varying pitches.

Yesterday, and throughout today, we got a true consonant into the vocabulary: “B”.

So far, the only word is “ba”, but it’s a start. Mimicry isn’t quite there yet. But “ba” it is. And we hear “ba” a lot. Again, it’s a start. Now comes the slippery slope. Next is “da” (so we’re told). Then multiple syllables. Then “no”. Then “Dad, can I have $5”. Then “can I take out the car”. Then “I’m pregnant”.

Hmm.

  1. Taylor said “Da” before “Ma” but then for some unexplainable reason she dropped the “Da” and went hardcore into “Ma” and “Mama” and “MomME”. Now everyone is “MomME” including “Dada”.
