Baby’s first word is always a memorable one, Elodie’s was Da-da! After the experience of childbirth and bringing my little one into the world, I would have thought my reward could have been Ma-ma as her first word but oh no daddy gets the honour instead. 🙂
All the same I congratulated her and encouraged her to say it again and again! Now she has mastered a few, one being ma-ma! yey!
This moves me onto a fantastic gift my sisters mother-in-law gave to us,….
Simple First Words, Baby and toddler books are a brilliant learning source for your children. Each page has pictures, words, numbers and names etc and a button featuring the picture and a voice over which sounds the word to the child. This encourages their learning of the word and also word association and pronunciation.
Elodie now has the whole collection and I have introduced them to her as a fun toy to play with, helping to develop her speech. I also love the idea that they’re books as it’s a great way of introducing reading into a child’s daily routine whilst also keeping it fun and engaging.
Available in most good books stores, prices vary depending on supplier, I purchased Elodie’s from amazon.
