Dax said his first word this evening. One guess what it was..."ball". We had him on the changing table to get dressed for bed and to distract him, Duane brought over one of his bouncy balls that he likes to throw. Duane handed it to him and said, "ball". Dax looked at it, then said "ba". Then he yelled "BAA!" He proceeded to throw the ball and yell "ba!" half a dozen more times. Then when I brought out the video camera, he clammed up. Oh well.
The other trick of the day was "touchdown". When we say "touchdown" Dax raises his arms up over his head to make the touchdown signal. Every kid needs a party trick, right?
We'll post video of these asap.
