The First Word

Jamie is fond of playing The Gravity Game. Anyone who has played with a baby knows this game. It's the one where babies drop things on the floor so they can see adults do their evil bidding by picking up the item that has been dropped. The adult hands it back to the baby. The baby drops it again.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Jamie plays this game while sitting in his highchair almost every night. Sometimes he drops food to the dog. Sometimes he drops his sippy cup over the side and then shrieks until we pick it up. This goes on until we refuse to pick up the cup or we pick up the cup and put it out of his reach.

Tonight he did a little something different. He threw the cup over the side of the highchair, it hit the floor, he turned to me, and said:


Yes, his first word is 'uh-oh.' I'm screwed, aren't I?
