Bennett's Other First Word

Ok, so I know that we said Bennett said his first word in October (see here). But the funny thing about it was he never really said that word ("ball") again.  Months and months passed and we could not, for the life of us, get him to say it again. Was it a fluke? Did he really say it on cue like we thought? Was he just babbling and we didn't realize it?

Well, the other day we heard another word.  Whether this is Bennett's second word or his first *real* word, he surprised us the other day when he saw my polka dotted sweater.  It was so funny to see him when he realized what my polk dots looked like.  His eyes got really big and he began to say this new word over and over!  I couldn't resist pulling out the camera and asking him to say the word over and over for documentation sake.

So, without further adieu...Bennett's other first word...


  1. Very creative to pick out bubbles!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has the "show you the camera" bribe in every video :) All of ours end with Molly laughing hysterically at herself. I can't believe they are 18 months!

  2. Haha! Chloe saw this and said" I want to watch dat on tv later"

  3. So cute! Madeline LOVEs to say that word. We usually blow bubbles in the bath so she says it a lot them. Bennett's speech sounds very clear! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love this! Walter's first word was also "bubble!" It's a great one :) Well done, Bennett!

  5. Ah, I love it! I played the video for Ben who giggled the entire time. Go Bennett!

  6. So precious! The fact that "bubbles", a two-syllable word, is his first (or second) word is great! What a smartie!
