    I remember an early one with my ds was “ball”. . . thinking with 4 boys, that one’s gotta be soon!

    My 13 month old says “d-d-d-d-dora!” Is that bad? 🙂 She’s the youngest of 3.

    My guess is NO or MINE. I hope I am wrong – can’t imagine 4 of them going at it with “No, mine”!

    I must say, I am so jealous Jen! My little Ethan (one day ahead of your guys) only says one thing….and it isn’t anything you would think a baby would say.
    Please? Thank you?
    Nope and Nope.

    He will say ‘diaper bag’.

    How bizarre is that? 🙂 I’m just glad he says something!

    Glad your little men are talking, how cute must it be when they rattle on back and forth to each other! *hee hee!*

    You found my blog a while back and I visited yours and then haven’t been back since. I finally added you to my google reader.

    Your boys are too cute! Amazing it took me 6 years to have 4 boys. Ha!

    love all the words… baby talk is SO CUTE!

    I am guessing “dog.” Lots of little kids seem to pick up animal names/sounds/signs quickly.

    My little girl signs dog all the time. That might tell you exactly how much the neighbors dog barks!

    we’re about 3 months ahead of you guys in age so my guess for the upcoming words will be: “no”, “mine”, and the occasional “yes” 🙂

    “milk!” .. i guess “milk!” I sign with my kids too.. it helps SOOO much!!!

    My guess is snack. That was a first word for my boy. Ha! Carter signed a lot at that age, and now we have let it go. Baby Einstein has a few DVD’s on signing that I loved. We need to get them back out. There is one that teaches signs for your neighborhood. Anyway, it’s so fun to experience these joys with you. Thank you for sharing! I feel blessed to know you and your amazing family. And I STILL think you need to write a book! Are you ready to go for walks? We’ve been on two today already! 🙂 Much love to you all!

    NO, It always seems to work its way out of the little mouths soon after “all done”

    It would be fun if the next word was “gramma”. I can always dream. I just love to listen to the boys and try to understand everything they say. Love you all, Gramma K…

    Claire’s favorite word is BABY, so that’s my guess.

    My daughter just turned one, and she loves to say “ball.”

    My guess is ‘Car’. Maybe ‘Ball’. Maybe ‘Bath’.

    Boo..can’t decide!!

    Love reading all of your ad-VENTURES.

    Ok, with the weather getting nicer & nicer… I bet yours will start saying the same thing mine just started to say, ” Outside.”

    I’m gonna go with “kitty”.

    Grayson says weird words like
    window (nin-ooo)
    cow & moo
    zebra (eee-baaa)
    map (means nap and blanket)

    so my vote is that is could be a conventional word like ball or milk, but it could be really off the wall…like tiger (maybe I should cut back on our trips to the zoo!)

    I can probably guess their first sentence… “HE DID IT!”

  28. Following HIM

    no or ball is my guess!

    My first vote goes for “Ball” too. Other possible ones are milk, brother, bye-bye, or some animals. (Dog was an early one with ours…but we have 2 dogs)

    “cookie” was always a favorite word in our house!

    “boo” came pretty quickly too with all the peek-a-boo playing that happened about this age.

    Hey Jen! Thanks for visiting our blog … how do you find the time?!?!?!?!

    Your boys are so handsome! And your photography is great! Our camera is a Nikon D80 … we love it.

    As for their next word … I’ll guess banana … or as our trio says “nana!”

    Take care,

    OK, so I should have read the list a little more carefully … they already say ‘nana!

    How about amen … or “men-men” as ours say! When we say our nightly prayers we always end with “And the babies say AMEN.” And they do! It is soooooo cute!

    I’m sure their next words will be “Wieder girls”. Don’t you think?

    Glad to see you are signing with the boys. I used signs with my son from 10 mo-20 mo. His vocabulary was enormous through signing. It was amazing to see him communicate with zero frustration. Now he talks up a storm!
