Following on with more exciting 1 year old news, B can now also say “mum”! It’s more of a short sharp and loud “mum”, but I’m going with it.
B has also grasped the concept of “no” quite well, although I don’t usually say “no” to him – I use “uh uh!” when he is doing something he shouldn’t. He uses the sounds “uh uh!” and “uh ohh” well enough. He often uses “uh uh!” or just “UHHHH!” in combination with shaking his head and waving his hands whenever I try to get him out of the bath. He loves bath time. He also uses “UH!” when one of his sibling gets in his personal space and tries to whack them, or uses that same sound when he is about to touch something he knows he shouldn’t – the cheeky little bugger!
I remember that C’s first word was “WOW!”, but to be honest I don’t remember what T and E’s first word was exactly. They all went through what I call a “wiggle wiggle” stage, which is the sound they make when had a dummy in their mouths. Well, not long now and B will be talking back to me like the rest of them!
