Swee’Pea = Genius

I’m fairly certain Swee’Pea said her first word today.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. She’s not even five months old, right? Well that’s what I thought too. But now that I’ve heard her say it a few times, I’m pretty sure she said her first word. In fact, I’m positive. What’s the word, you ask?


Now, I know that sounds like a pretty big word for a girl to utter for her first word ever spoken but she’s said it a few times already today and it’s definitely a word. Usually, it’s in the middle of babbling something and then she’ll hit me with it. The pronouciation is not perfect but it sounds something like this…


See?! Tell me that’s not Onomatopoeia.

Besides, I read in one of the few many baby magazines we get here at home that Daddies tend to use bigger words around their babies than Mommies do.

So it’s obvious that the plethora of multi-syllabic morphemes that eminate from my oral cavity circadianly must have positively contributed to the stratospheric level of percipience demonstrated by my female offspring.

So, yeah, my girl said her first word.



  1. Sweet. I would have believed you even if she had said Wuff or Moo. Way to go, Bri!

  2. Good for Brianna. She sounds brilliant. She is going to be the Doogie Houser type, I guess.

  3. Certainly sounds like onomatopoeia

    Ugh – I can’t believe I just did that – death to the English major.

  6. Oh, that’s too bad. I was rooting for you that she’d said “dada”, but, poor you, it was only “onomatapoeia”.

  7. Impressive. You have enrolled her in college right? At this pace she will make Doogie look like a complete moron.
