So Taylor's first official word (after the typical "mama" and "dada") was kitty - pronounced "kiki." Taylor absolutely adores our cat, although I don't think I can say the feelings are mutual. She will put up with him, but only for a few minutes. Right now we're trying to teach him to pet her gently instead of yanking her fur out so that she doesn't bite or scratch him. He loves the feel of her fur and thinks everything she does is funny. We've been trying to teach him what different animals say, and so far the only one that has stuck is "meow." Now he'll point to the cat and say "kiki meow meow!" It's so cute, and I'm surprised he's able to put the two words together like that at such a young age. Now all we have to do is ask him what a kitty says and he immediately perks up and says, "Meow! Meow!" He's such a smart little booger..
And of course I had to shoot a video of him, so here you go:
