First words

Our little Alexis has now said her first words. She's been babbling for quite some time, but we realized that some of her babbling was actually directed, and not random. When she's saying na na na, she's actually saying no. She also say ama when she's looking at Rebecca, so obviously that's mama. And the first word she ever said? That's right...da da. She used to repeat the sound over and over, but then we realized that she would get really loud and call for me when she was upset and wanting me to carry her around to calm her down. She'll also look at me and say it, so it became obvious that she was actually addressing me.

Those are her first three words, and I'm sure there will be plenty more to follow. We even think she's trying to sound out her sisters' names, but she hasn't quite figured out how to do it yet.
