Jonathan said his first word today! Granted, I did think I heard him speak a few times before. The first, during the difficult early weeks of parenting, I really did hear him scream "Grandma!" That was when I did not know how to console him and it seemed that my mother always knew exactly what to do. The other word he says a lot is "hi!" when he is smiling and talking to you.
So. Tonight, he was initiating a conversation with me. He said hi and was all smiley and happy cooing and excited little screams. Naturally, I was encouraging his conversation by responding (in English, not baby talk, to clarify.) After a couple lines of how much mama loves him and when a sweet little boy he is, I asked him, "what's your favorite color?"
I got a momentary look of confusion, then of great excitement, and my answer came: "Booooo!"
Mama thought that was very funny, didn't she. :)
