It's not "Mxyzptlk"

A while ago, we thought that the first word was "Hi." As mentioned here, however, there have been other hand motions for "milk" (which he seems to actually use for many things to eat) and his own motion for "ceiling fan."

The Boy Who Cannot Walk Yet, however, has apparently spoken his first semi-intelligible word, we think, and given his recent trend toward round, rolly things, this is not surprising. Therefore, beating out early possible contenders such as "Mom," "Dad," "Vega," "cat," "tofu," "NPR" and "tracking shot," Xan's official first word is ball. Needless to say, we're having one.

According to my mom, my 1st wrd was "NO!" To my mind, Xan's "BALL" is a much more positive start toward verbal communication. He's getting the ball moving. Patty K
