"Magnus's First Word," April 2012Magnus began saying the "m" sound at around one year, and then he started using it when we he wanted something -- pointing and saying "ma" really clearly. (This replaced the previous shrill squawking that he did when he wanted things, so we were pleased!) Then he started making it sound like "ma-nu," and we realised he was saying his own name. So the video clip shows us encouraging him to say it. He now has different sounds for Maisie, his sister, Mummy and we think also Bounce, Bang and Book (a small insight into our lives!!!). He's now 14 months.
