Dominik's first words

As fourth children ourselves, Tom and I know how sometimes the newness of recording all the fun firsts wears in an attempt to not be guilty myself, here are some of Dominik's first words:


Yesterday, he signed "more." Today he called a banana "ba" and "nana" while he was trying to get me to hurry up and mash it and give it to him.  It will be interesting to see what he settles on calling this favorite fruit.

Dominik is definitely not using recognizable speech very much (just a lot of babbling), but once in a while, he throws out a word that we can recognize and makes sense for the situation.  I'm still trying to get him to sign, so it was encouraging that he finally signed "more" to ask for more Cheerios.  I think this is about the age when he should start signing a few words.
