Muski – “Nan nan nan naaaan”
Me – “Mama?”
Muski – “Bub bub bub bub”
Me – “mum mum mum mamma!”
Muski – “Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (drool drool spit bubble drool) brrrrrrrr”
Me – “Can you say Mama? mum mum mama?”
Muski – “Dad dad dad dad dad da da dad dad”
Me – “Not Dadda, Mama!. MAM-MA! Come on child! I am the one who provides you with all the milk? I am the one who rocks you to sleep, kisses you, never puts you down, cooks your meals, wipes your bum! Me! Mama! Say MAMA!”
Muski – “Duck em duck em duck em DUCK it!”

I’ve never yet had one say “mama” first. I swear my husband must wake them up all night to practice “dada”!
Mum is the last thing my kids say and then when they start, I wish they wouldn’t say it so often…
Mum, Maddy hit me
Mum, where are my socks?
Mum can I have some afternoon tea please?
Mum, wake up!
Mum can you take me to so and so’s house?
More of the gorgeous Muski though. *SIGH*

Good Morning Kate,
You are one of the winners in Pink Lemonade’s March Madness Sweepstakes!!
Pop me over an email and I will fill you in on the details.
awww..cuteness! I think i am just lucky my kids said mama first, it seems uncommon!
Beautiful pic of your son!
My little guy is too little to speak just yet, though he is full of raspberries and ba ba baas. Daddy keeps after him to say ‘daddy’ but it hasn’t happened yet. I swear the little guy doesn’t even know who Mummy is. :(
our speech therapist told me that it’s actually to do with ‘ma/mu’ being harder sounds to say. I felt vindicated after that about my children’s refusal to say MUM first. Told my hubby twas just a fluke of freakin nature that ‘dad’ was said first and only because he was ‘easy’ ;) lol

lol That’s very cute, if not a little annoying for you!
It’s true, once they start it’s not long until you’d love for them to stop, just for 5 minutes!
Haha how sweet!
(Sounds just like the conversations my son and I have, too)
Mine all said dadda first, mum was waaaay down on the list past “more”, “now” and “no” lol ;)
I know what your talking about!!!! My little princess’s first word was dad too. It took her forever to say mum…
Ok, so you know my boy’s first word was McDonalds? How SAD is that? ;)
Gosh darn he is cute!
Ah see now I don’t count ‘mumumum’ ‘dadada’ ‘babababa’ as proper words ;) They are just sounds.
I’m a mean mummy :P
Lauren’s first recognisable word that wasn’t a ‘mumma’ or ‘dad’ was ‘beh’ (bear) so so cute. She soon got sick of us getting her to say it though.
