Just 2 days shy of my first birthday, my parents have declared my First Word. My mom and I were in a Bartell’s Drug Store today looking for baby shampoo when we wandered into the pet food aisle. There, I spied some familiar creatures staring at me from the food bags. I very deliberately pointed my finger and said, “Gaaaa!” Now, the average passerby might have heard me and considered this statement to be unintelligible. But, my mom got very excited, pointed and repeated what I’d said (more or less) several times and pronounced me a genius. This evening, after further discussion with my dad (who has also heard me on several occasions utter this strangely provocative word), the two of them decided that it’s official: my first word is CAT! The following day for documentation purposes, I repeated my performance for the camera. The result is above.
When I first started posting, I was a highly intelligent and exceptionally cute infant and the milestones were coming fast and furious.. These days, I'm a precocious nearly 5-year-old and my babybook blog has been retired to serve as a window to my early years..
