Such a short word, but so amazing when uttered by a toddler, or mine at least in my current frame of reference.
We were playing hide & seek with the shower curtain the other night and I would hide from him, and then show my face and say “Hi!” Then he started doing it. It’s very strange to hear your child form actual words from what used to just a be gurgle, even if they don’t necessarily know what they’re saying.
He makes attempts at a few other words, but none come through so clear as this. Closer! Baby steps.
