First Word: "Bye"

30 05 2007

Molly & I think it’s official: Alex now has his first word, and it’s “bye.” He’s been waving “bye” for a long time now, and last night/this morning he’s started coupling the hand wave with the word.

Yes, he’s been making a lot of noises that sound like words for the past several months. And when he gets going with his babbling, it sounds like he’s talking in another language — he’s got the rhythm and intonation down. But this is the first time that he seems to consistently use a word in the right context. (“Mamama when he’s unhappy and Da to mean “anything I can point to” don’t count.)
