I was told that my first word was 'cow' as I pointed at one.

My granddaughter's first word was 'bird', and she signed bird (ASL) at the same time.

Have no idea what my first word was but I was quite the chatterbox. My Mom used to put me in the playpen on the front porch and I would talk to anybody who passed. That was in the days before child kidnapping was popular in our our small town.

I guess for me it was "Maman".

Have not the foggiest idea. Was told I started talking late, whatever that means. Still frugal with words.
There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

I had two rambunctious big brothers running around and keeping my parents well occupied. They were only a year apart in age, 4 and 5 years older than me, and their sibling rivalry was off the charts. So, by the time I came along, neither the baby-W2R nor my first words were quite the center of attention. I don't think anybody heard them, to tell you the truth!

When they were both on the high school football team together and at after-school practice I think I was first able to get a word in edgewise....

My daughter, on the other hand, was an only child. Her first word was "Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da [...]" ad infinitum, which supposedly was "Daddy", or at least her father thought so. I had my doubts. Another early word was "Fa-Fly", which meant either "butterfly" or "French fries", depending on context.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.
