Simon's First Word

The boy has been flirting with it the past week or so--a possible "da-da" when Jay came home on Wednesday, a potential "bye-bye" to the diapers in the aisle at Coscto, he sometimes makes "mah mah mah" noises while eating (more?)--but today we have a definite, vetted first word.

In the parking lot at Kroger, Jay and John and Simon ran into a student from Mays. John was a little shy, but did decide to say "Bye-bye Richard!" when they parted company. Moments later, staring across the parking lot, Simon calls out, "Bye-bye! Bye-bye!"

Jay caught up with Richard to tell him that he was the recipient of his youngest son's first word. A moment possibly wasted on a teenage boy, who merely responded matter-of-factly, "Because I'm Richard!"
