The first word

From Dale Coverly’s Speed Bump:

My daughter’s first word was “no”, quickly followed by “dog” and “cat”. “Hippopotamus” would have been too much to expect.

[Update 16 April: my granddaughter’s first words were (in order) “hi”, “no”, and “uh-oh”. “Hi” was used to greet someone — and request that the addressee pick her up.]
