He speaks!

Brian’s first word is officially “Max.” I am the mom, so I get to decide. Brian has mimicked sounds before, like “mama” and “dada” but we’ve never been sure if there was any meaning behind it. He has also done a breathy “hi” before, but again we weren’t sure if he intended to greet us or if it just came out that way. But we are sure that Brian uses Max correctly, pointing at his brother when he says it. He can’t say it correctly, but it is obvious what he is trying to say. Go Brian!

    YAY!!! I told you he was saying it. I was high on pain killers and I caught it. Hooray for Brian!!! I love his crooked-finger pointing. He really throws his whole body into it, throwing that shoulder forward, like the more force he uses to point, the more likely we are to pay attention to him. Of course, he’s right.

    I can’t get him to sign “more” though and it is driving me crazy!

  3. As a little brother, I think that this is a very good sign that ‘Max’ is his first word.
