    Oh my – I love the sound of little voices as they just start to get to grips with words. My little nephew’s first “sentence” ever was to me, on getting a bright red car – ” Canaan ( well, Rhiannon is a hard one too ) – car – nice “

    How wonderful to have a recording of Noah’s early words!

    My son was a one man demolition expert, into everything from the moment he could walk. His first word was, unsurprisingly enough, ‘No’. It was probably the one he heard the most!

    That is soooo sweet! I love it!

    That is the sweetest audio I have EVER heard!! Precious! Max isn’t talking yet – with his speech delay but he uses sign language ( has over 100 signs ! ) and I felt as much thrill at video taping his signs as you did with this recording of his voice. Isn’t it AMAZING to see them learn and grow. It trips me out completely. Knocks me over every time.

    I’m dying to know what his made up word for your name is. In our family we still call each other by the names my brother gave everyone when he was small, when he couldn’t say our real names. Mine was ‘Sissy’, i dont think i’ve ever heard him call me Helen and hes 26 now!
    Until my Father died he was ‘Grangrad’ as thats what my daughter called him. Sausages are still called ‘sausing’ and “pardon?” is still “kwigwee?” People on the outside must think were nuts!

    That is so cute. It’ll be great to listen to that in the future when he’s older as you forget those sorts of things so quickly. Thanks for sharing! :)

    So sweet! My first nanny job the youngest girl was toddler and she couldn’t say Susie, so she called me eee-eee.

    Beautiful!!! The giggles, capture his giggles if you can. I remember wanting to bottle them when my littlest niece was two. The sweetest music!

  18. Karen

    That is really sweet. It is really amazing that you thought about making a list and doing a record on him learning to speak. This memory will always put a smile in my face. I like the idea and thank you for sharing.
