It seems like that would be a neat thing (I wasn't).
However, the most common word my daughter says is my name.
Sometimes Mommy, Mommeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, Mama, Mom Mom Mom.
If I leave the room without telling her where I am going, she kind of freaks out and calls for me.
If I leave the room for the bathroom, she will always join me. ALWAYS. Or else knock and knock until the door opens.
Its kind of nice to be the parent that is more bonded to, since DHH was more impressed by his dad by age 1.5.
I also heard (from Dobson?) that is for the best that the child have a stronger bond with the same-sex parent by the time they are two in order to form a strong sense of identity. So maybe its psychologically good for her, too.
I imagine EK will have a rough transition with the new baby being so big a part of my life pretty soon.
For now, I enjoy her coziness, her affection, and her interest in everything I am doing.
Its really wonderful having a daughter, just as I imagined.
I actually imagined four daughters, but one is great, too.
