First words

It seems I've confused people by calling "Hi" Joey's first word. Yes, Joey has been saying "Mama" or "mamamama mum mmm" and "Daddy" or "da da da dee da da" for several weeks, but I'm not sure that he knows what either actually mean, since whenever he's unhappy he tends to make "mmm" sounds and whenever he's happy he tends to make "da/dee" sounds... However, he nearly always says "hahh" when he waves, and seems to say it almost only in that context, so to me, this means he is saying it purposely and with understanding - which is why I called it his first word.
