It’s official, we’re calling it: His first word is SOCK. Because, you know, that’s vital to communicating when you can’t say anything else.
Technically the first intentional sound he made was “Aah aah.” As in “Ooh ooh aah ahh,” like a monkey. For some reason out of everything we say to him over and over and over again, making a monkey sound is what he responded to. Not “mama” or “dada” or “more” or “dog.” Nothing there. But when he sees that monkey inside the cabinet of “Where’s Spot?” he knows exactly what to say.
