May 24, 2012 First Word Competiton My wife and I are secretly competing with each other, even though she may disagree. We are competing about our son’s future first word. Everyday I try to get my son to say the word “daddy”, or at least a piece of it like “da” or “dada”. Occasionally I will throw in my wife’s ideal word “mummy” because I’m a good sport. :) I will keep you posted!
