Jul 23, 2012 Almost There Our son is ready to speak, it's just a matter of when. For the past few months he has been learning to use his voice. Now, he's trying to say something, and it sounds like amamma, mamma, ta, tata, etc. The big question is whether he knows what he's saying. I will keep you posted on his first words, but I have a strong feeling the words "da, dada, or daddy" will not be in his vocab yet.
