Does Edith have a first word or not? I can’t decide.
Her nanny and my mother both say that she says “mama.” I agree she often says “mama” but I’m not convinced that when she says it, she means me (or anything in particular).
I don’t quiz her much, but we are coming up at one year, so last night, I sat her down and said, “You’re EDITH. I’m MAMA. Who am I? Edith, who am I?”
And she said, “momblurgh.”
I took that as a win, but obviously anything can happen once. The key is in whether I can get consistent results. I tried a few more times last night and was solidly ignored, but we’ll leave that aside. She was probably tired.
First thing this morning (after breakfast), I again said, “You’re EDITH. I’m MAMA. Who am I? Edith, who am I?”
And she rolled her eyes at me and muttered “mmmb.”
Ok, so she knows who I am. Right? And she knows that I’m her Mom and not the other two women who consistently care for her. Let’s go with this for now.
