The Girl's First Word...

The Girl said her first word this morning at 6:30am. Clear as crystal, and right out of the blue. She stood up at her cot, desparate to get out, and said:

"Mummy."

Love, Justin.

That is beautiful.
How amazing that this time a year ago she wasn't even born yet, and in the space of a year is starting to speak. Wow!
Love Em

finally a baby that says "mummy" first instead of "daddy"! well done girl!

hope you guys are all well. We are doing fine, moving back to the ole north shore next week (joshua will be working at RNSH) and expecting baby number two in march (a cool year after Charlotte was born!)

MAYHEM!

Justin, that is wonderful news, it is very exciting to see your kids do things for the first time.
Thanks for the blog, it's great to hear what's going on in you and your families life.

Benjamin Ady said...

do you suppose that god took as much notice as you did? (one hopes that this might be the case, because one can then extrapolate to the idea that perhaps he takes that much of notice of Benjamin or Justin when Benjamin or Justin does something new and relatively amazing)

Scott said...

Very tidy.

Ben can say 'nanna' as in bananna but it also sounds a bit like Nanna (my mum's designation) So on a video the Rockwells took of him to take back to St Ives, we got him to say the fruit as if he was speaking to my mum. Sneaky, yes. but it will make her week!

Justin said...

Nice, Scott.

The Boy says: "Me-na-naa" for banana. No idea why. And Parp-ish for breakfast [or porridge?]

Justin said...

Benjamin -- I hope so. I think so. I think thats something of what Jesus means when he says: "Not a sparrow falls to the ground... So you..."

Benjamin Ady said...

E said "LEE shintz" for escalator for a while when she was little. Very kewl.

Julia Collings said...

Katie said...

My sister's first word was "bagel," and this was in Ohio! But my dad was from New York...

Phoebz said...

Does it count as a first word if they don't actually know what that word means? I'm sure the Girl knows who 'Mummy' is, but I'm not sure baby knows what bagels are...and it is a fun word to say.
p.s, did she say mummy or mommy?

such a precious photo.

In that beautiful place He has
gone to prepare
For all who are washed and forgiven;
And many dear children shall be with Him there,
For “of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

my little lovely one thinks 'ma ma' is his toy cat.
Can't win them all! R
