Blah blah blah...

Mr. Meep-meep's first word was Dadders. Slowly, painstakingly, he figured out how to imitate Andy, and put those sounds together. "D-d-da-DAd-Dadr-DadR-DADRRRs!" Once he finally succeeded, he was immensely pround of his achievement, and proceeded to repeat his new word over and over.

Mr. Wuggidy's first word was "da-da-da-da-da." (I'm sensing a pattern, here...) This came much easier for him, and with much less intentionality. He just sort of stumbled upon it in his exploration of sounds, and discovered that this particular "phrase" elicited much attention from Dadders.

Feeling a bit insecure, I've been trying desperately to ensure that at least their second word will be some sort of derivative of "mammawuggy."

No such luck. The other day Andy was changing Isaiah's diaper, and said, "Blucky!"

And so now he has a new favorite word. "bla-bla-bla"

I would just like to point out that "D" sounds come much easier and usually first out of babies. They are easier to pronounce than any semblance of "M" words, thus Mommy, who's taken such tender care of them till now, get jipped. "Daddy" is almost always the first word.
