    Maw. I found it easier to say than 'mum' and its a Scottish word for mum anyway. Still call my mum, maw to this day.

    This is actually one of my fave very early childhood stories.
    My mom used to take me out during storms so that I wouldn't be afraid later in life. I would catch rain drops in my palm and look at them and she would say 'water' and at some point I looked fascinated at her and showed her my palm and said water.
    So yea, it was water.

    Water in my language is a much easier word so I guess that had something to do with it too

    My first word was monkey.

    Apparently I said it while sitting in the back seat of a car and didn't say anything else until a few months later.

    I would count the seconds between the lightning bolt and the thunder.

    During the warm summer days my dad used to take me out onto the balcony, holding me in one arm and pointing at all the swallows that were flying around in the sky. It's funny because he's Italian and my mum is British, but he always said "Look, it's a birdie! Say hi to the birdie, sweetie!".
    One day I must have been particularly excited and shouted "birdie!" to the first swallow I saw as soon as we went out onto the balcony I have no clue how I remembered the word, my dad didn't even get the chance to point at them as usual hahaha

    Mom used to call dad "Iubi" which was a cute (and short) way of saying "love" in Romanian.
    According to mom's diary I said that to dad when he grabbed me once.

    According to mom's diary she also found me playing in the barn with manure when I was 2 :ashamed2:. I was apparently making chocolate muffins.
