On Sunday, Kate was acting silly and singing the Hot Dog song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Owen started giggling at her so she started saying "hot dog" to him and he repeated it! His version is more like "dat-dah", but it's close. Now one might argue that his first word was either dada or down. But da-da-da is his usual sound of choice whether or not it's coincidentally said to James or not and he says "ahhh" when we play the Up, Up, Down game from speech, so I don't know whether to count that. But, I'm going to go ahead and say this is his first actual word. Hot Dog!
