Punkie has a really sweet voice. He makes a lot of cute little noises while he turns the pages of a book or looks into my eyes. It’s no secret that I’ve been wanting him to talk for a long time now. Of course, I hoped his first word would be “mommy,” but, statistically, that was not likely. I would have been happy too if it were “daddy,” which was more likely.
But now the waiting is over! The first word has landed.
Punkie’s first word is . . . “uh-oh.” Yup. Uh-oh.
He hits the “uh” really loud and then exhales and gives a small, quiet “oh.” It really is adorable, to this exceptionally biased observer. He’s saying it over and over and working pretty hard at perfecting it. I respect the hard work and dedication that he’s put into this word.
I hope “mommy” ends up in the top 3 words at least. Or the top 5?
