You know, it's kind of funny that baby books often ask you for baby's first word. Because how do you define that? Elli says "mamamamama" and "dadadadadada" a lot, but I'm not sure if their in reference to either of us. And she says a lot of things that sound like words, but clearly aren't. So, I guess we as parents just get to decide for ourselves what baby's first word is.
Well, Daniel and I are calling it. Elli says "pumpkin." Now, it comes out more like "gunk-gon," but she is definitely trying and definitely referring to her pumpkins. So sweet.
When we got home from the pumpkin patch on Saturday, Elli put one hand on her big "gunkgon" and one on her little "gunkgon," and just sat there chattering... I think she loves them! I wonder what she'll think when Daniel carves up the big one?
