Ellie's first word is...

Of course she says Mama and Dada (not sure if she knows that Dada is Daddy, but she says it), but her first  official word is kind of unexpected. Rachel taught it to her, since she likes them so much, but it is unexpected that she is actually saying 'rat'. She calls the gerbils 'rat', since that's how Rachel taught it to her, since that's much easier to say, and Ellie just loves the gerbils, except when they crawl over her bare skin or tickle her face with their whiskers. But all in all, it's pretty funny.

Cute! I can't believe she's old enough to start talking. That's crazy! The first word I ever said--before mama or daddy or anything--was "turtle". Nobody knows why. But it was turtle. At least Ellie has a good reason for saying rat!
