    My (then) three year old came inside boasting to her grandmother, "I p*ssed off that cat!"

    My mother asked in horror, "You what???"

    My daughter recounted, "I went Psst Psst Psst and that cat ran off."

The 2 little ones kept begging her for candy, finally she said very firmly No, but I'll let you lick my fingers. My husband and I laughed so hard, he had to pull over. That little kindergartner is now 41. Thats just 1 of many special memories I have of my daughters when they were tiny.

    my mother was a very strait-laced vermonter but when she was with this one friend her laces loosened up--a lot! she had 6 month old josh in the car and she and pru were chattering and when they came into the house their faces were red and they could hardly stop laughing to breathe. my mom said josh had said " you eat sh-t". i was appalled. I said he couldn't have because he had never heard such a thing in his life! well, they swore up and down that he had said it, they both had hear it, and they repeated it several times in front of this sweet innocent happy little baby! that afternoon my friend deb came over and we went to the store and took josh with us. i told her the awful story. and out of the back seat pipes this tiny voice, " you eat sh-t." i nearly ran off the road!!! needless to say we cracked up. he wasn't saying the meaning of the words just the sounds, and he was only repeating them because he got a positive response, but man, i was so shocked! and so was my mom! well, all of us! kids are so innocent and try out any sounds they can! years later we were visiting my parents and i knew i had a much less strict language 'law' than my mom's and i had warned the kids to watch their words around grandma and be polite. one of mom's favorite things was giving baths, so she had started the boys in the tub. they were 4 and 6, and she came stomping downstairs to where i was. well, she said, the language on those two ! (oh, no, they blew it) what did they say, i asked. well, she said, let's just say they don't know the word 'urinate'. (now, that! was a pretty safe bet!! they had said 'pee'). i explained to her that in our house, and our area of texas, pee was considered perfectly polite within our social class. it was so much better than a hundred other things they could have said it was all i could do to keep from laughing.
    i do believe josh's first words were ickey owie, which meant mickey mouse. (other that the usual dada, mama etc)

    We were visiting Niagara Falls when my first-born was 10months old. She was very impressed and kept saying over and over "Big water! Big water fall down!" Had everyone around us laughing.

    My sons' first sentence: "I want cake."

    My younger daughters first sentence: "Home now." when she was tired of not being home.

    Can't remember my older daughters first sentence...

    My oldest grandsons first sentence: "Eat! Eat! Eat!"

    My youngest daughter actually started talking very early. When she was 7 months old my DH was headed to a meeting and stopped before going out the door, saying "Bye bye, Melissa". She looked up from her chair, raised her hand, and said "bye". She knew exactly what she was doing, but we just stared at each other for the longest time.

    So, by the time she was about 18 months old she had a large repertoire of words. One night she was playing with a large box I had given her. She got throw pillows and a blanket, arranged them in the box, then climbed inside. The sat down, leaned back with her arms raised and her hands behind her head, and said "Now I'm comfortable". I think that was the first time she had made a complete sentence. It just floored me that one so little could understand the meaning of comfortable, plus be able to say it.

    And today, at 29, she has proved herself to be a very intelligent and articulate young woman.

    my DH was babysitting the grandchildren one day. My DD and I got home to find a pack of gum that was full when we left, now almost empty. Looking at the child we knew had sneaked them, we asked "where is all the gum?" She answers "you should have hid it from me." She is three.

    I will never forget my gs's first sentence. We were spending the weekend at his place and, after DH had gotten up and I was still snoozing my 17 month old gs came in and asked "Holmi, where is your husband?" I was so astounded I didn't even answer! (Holmi was his early corruption of the Korean world for grandmother, Holmony -- spelling is probably awful).

    Oh, one more.... When the second child of the one above was 12 months old she got her hands on a box of cherrios (which her mother kept on hand to give a hand-ful if a kid needed to eat right-now!). The little on happily sprinkled the cherrios all over the kitchen and eating area floor. Her mommy saw her looking proud and happy and then she saw the cherios! Now, this little one had a brother who, in his adjustment to having a new sibling and less attention, liked to blame anything odd on his sister, as in "Julie did it!" When this little girl saw the look of horror on her mother's face she quickly said "Daddy-dit-it", very cleverly using words she knew somehow fit.

    Also, her mother swears that when she was a week old she was leaning over her and saying "I love you" repeatedly and that this one said back "I oove oooo". I saw and heard her laugh when she was a couple of weeks old.

    We just don't know the extent of understanding and brain developement of infants!!!
