The First Word

Last night, while I was playing on the floor with Jonah, he clearly and distinctly said the word "Chicago."

What a little genius! Only twelve months old! I don't know yet whether he was thinking of the city or the musical, though --I didn't even know that he had heard of either one. But I foresee great things. Of course, he's having trouble pronouncing "Pass Christian" because he doesn't know to change the pronunciation of the last syllable. And "Tchoupitoulas" is just a lost cause right now. But I feel confident that he'll be reeling off the place names in no time. Just as soon as he says "Dada" while looking at me instead of the dog.
