Do you know what your first spoken word was?  The first word you said other than "Mama or Dada"?  I know what mine was.  Light.  And I know what Hannah and Leah's first word was too.  Light.  Really, I promise.  In both my case and in my girls' case, the word was pronounced "Dight!"  For my girls, it started with the question, "Where's the light?"  And with a chubby little hand, they would reach up and point to the nearest light fixture, their chocolate brown eyes sparkling with delight.  After a few months of pointing, we finally heard their sweet voices say, "Dight!!" as they pointed up.  This was always followed with exuberant applause from their Daddy and me. 

Guess what Lucas is doing these days? 

Mama:  "Where's the light, Buddy?"
Lucas:  reaches out his chubby (and tan!) little hand and points toward the nearest light fixture
Mama:  "YAY!!!" clap, clap, clap

I may be wrong, but I think we might hear "Dight!" in the near future.  What a sweet, sweet word.
