Baby's First Words

Mama or Dada: Which Did Your Tot Say First?

Oh, those precious first words babies say when they've finally found their voice. As soon as they come out, you cheer, you cry, you say, "What?" After carrying, birthing, nursing, and generally taking the dominant role in raising them, the least many moms hope to get in return are some first words that sound vaguely like "mama."
