She writes: “Miss Hattie hit a big milestone last week when she said her first word. It was bittersweet as she uttered the word, “DADA.” I’m sure that mamas everywhere can agree that I wouldn’t be human if somewhere inside, beneath the beaming pride I felt about her accomplishment, there wasn’t a little sadness that her first word wasn’t “MAMA.”
The CelebraTORI author shares that Liam’s first word was “Dada” while Stella’s was “Mama”.
Liam is my little man but he came out of my belly with adoring eyes for Dean. He was Daddy’s dude from the jump, so it was no surprise when his first word was “DADA.” He was my first, so while I was a little sad, on the whole I totally got it and was proud. Stella, on the other hand, is SO me. Her first word was “MAMA,” and her second word was “SHOES”– we were kindred spirits from the start.”
Tori continues, “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t do a little dance when Stella first uttered “MAMA,” and used my not-so-inside voice to exclaim, “Yes, I won one!” Was there something wrong with me that I was somehow keeping parental score as judged by my children’s verbiage?”
