In our noisy and busy house, it's not uncommon to hear the repeated, "mom. mom. mom. mom. MOM!" I respond...sooner or later. It's just a busy home. Max has decided to cut to the chase...He starts out by saying "MOM. MOM. MOM. MOM. MOM!" Now, please understand that between every (or almost every) "MOM", I say "what?" He just keeps going until he reaches the numbers that his brothers reach before getting my response. It is hysterical. (not as funny at a restaurant or in church). And, when he decides he has my attention, he asks me questions or tells me things in "toddler jibberish". And he is realllllly serious about what he has to tell me! If I don't give him the response he wants. "MOM. MOM. MOM...." starts all over. He has truly learned from his siblings.

What do your babies do to get attention from you? Have they learned stuff from older siblings?

Mine will start yanking on me. Pants, shirt, hair whatever he can reach. He still rarely will say mama.

This is the only one out of four who knows that Mom is a word. All others did Dadadada...

They each said MOM or Ma once. They had to show me that they could do it. I just was NOT important enough to repeat.

Max does the clingly climb thing, too! It's so hard. I'm loading the dishwasher and he wants to be "held". Good thing we love them. Wouldn't trade it. Like I always say....I'd just tweek it a little bit.

Katie yells "Mama Mama Mama" all the time, but I have realized that means Grandma, Great Aunt A, Aunt B or Mama. She knows who Mama is, but since she can't say the other names, she has learned that she gets their attention by yelling "Mama". This is typically done when I am at work so I only get to hear it via phone or on video.

Mark will do the climbing, yanking pants thing if he's close by. If he's across the room, he'll either do this fake coughing, or start yelling Hey (sounds like hey) until we look at him and say What. Then he'll give us a huge smile.

Becky...Mark probably IS saying "hey". One of mine did it. And he meant it! I think that the fact that your son is calling for your attention is too cute. It's adorable. And when he gets the attention he desires, he smiles! That is AWESOME!

The fact that Katie yells Mamamama is so cute. I hope you get to see/hear it in person, not just via the phone! Gotta love LIVE baby talk

I feel like we all just had our babies and wHAM, we're posting about them TALKING!

aww that's so cute!! Savannah definitely picks up stuff from the older toddlers at daycare...she uses mamama when she wants me, and dadadada for DH...and my favorite "me me me me me" when it's something she wants herself and of course the dreaded "no no no no no" anytime you do something she doesn't want (like nose wipes!). The cutest thing she does though (i think) is "Uh Oh!" and puts her hands/arms up like "what can you do" whenever she drops anything (or intentionally drops something) - it cracks me up every time & she definitely learned that from one of the other kids in her daycare class...

That is very cute! Layla says Mum mum a lot now but it only ever seems to be when she's angry! Like if I leave the room MUM MUUUUUM. And at night when she cries out it's a heart felt MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM MUUUUUUUUUUUUM. At first we weren't sure if she knew she was using it for me, but the last couple of weeks dh and I are both sure that she knows exactly who she's asking for!

And, I was thinking about this the other night... is MOM harder to say than MUM? Mum seems like an easier 'sound' if you know what I mean? Like the 'o' sound would be harder to form...or is that just me saying it with my Australian accent...?!
