I always love hearing what a child’s first word was. Often you’ll hear that a baby’s first word was “mom” or “dad” which is lovely and heartwarming, but I always enjoy hearing about the less traditional first words. My daughter, Bean was 8 months old when she had her first (non baby babble) word. We had been at my parents house for Easter and we were loading up the car to head back home. We were a few weeks into baby sign language classes and as we loaded Bean into her carseat she started looking around the car frantically and said “Dog, dog…” while patting her chubby little hand against her leg, which is the sign for dog.
“Did she just say what I think she said?” I asked The Hubs.
“It sounded like dog to me!” he replied.
“Jake!” I said picking up our 4 pound yorkie mix. “You were just Bean’s first word!”
A big smile spread across Bean’s face as she pointed at Jake with one hand, patted her leg with the other and said over and over again “Dog! Dog! Dog!”
This was such a fantastic first word for my girl, that truly represents who she is. For as long as I can remember B has been obsessed with animals, and her dog Mochi truly is her best friend. She is an animal lover at heart and it’s so fitting that her first word was an animal.
I don’t remember exactly how old Turtle was when he had his first word (poor kid… second child syndrome). But his first word was equally fitting to his true nature as his older sister’s was. I remember he was laying on my lap, while I made funny faces at him. He was smiling up at me and he reached his hand up, touched my cheek and said “love”.
My son is truly the most loving little boy that I have every met. Even now at 6 years old, he loves to cuddle, holds my hand as we walk to and from school, and tells me a thousand times a day that he loves me. He gets gently scolded on the soccer field for hugging the other players and I often get pulled aside by substitute teachers who tell me what a lovely and caring little boy I have. I volunteer in his classroom for 20-30 minutes each week and every time I’m in his classroom he swings by the desk where I’m working multiple times and tells me he loves me. I call him my Squish because I love cocooning him in my arms and squishing him tight so, so much.
I’m telling you these stories because today I’m sharing my free Love SVG file. I think about Valentine’s Day and love in general differently now that I am married to my husband and we have two beautiful children. When I think about love I think about how these three incredible humans have intensified what love means to me and how the love of my family is what I cherish above all else.
