Dada | First Words

The first word that is spoken is always an exciting time with your little one and the anticipation of what it would be, might have parents on the edge of their seats. I know this is how we were as we anticipated those first words from our daughter, Nikki.

I had a few friends and family who would tell me that the first word is usually momma or dada but a majority of them said it would be “Dada.” Of course, they were right as her first word was “Dada.”

So when I saw, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada, by Jimmy Fallon I knew this was the perfect gift for my husband for Father’s Day as it will take him back to that glorious day that he reminds me of every single day. 😉

“Your baby’s first word will be…Dada! Right? Everyone knows that fathers wage a secret campaign to ensure that their babies’ first word is “Dada”! But does it work?”

According to this children’s book it can definitely work with hard work and determination. The book is beautifully illustrated with different animals throughout and each animal has something in common – teaching their children to say “Dada.” Unfortunately, their attempts just have their child make their sound instead. However, fathers never give up and by the end, all the children say “Dada.” Hooray!

We just loved this book as it is so sweet. The story is simple for a young child to understand and flows nicely. Your child can learn as the story is read to them as you can teach your child the sounds that different animals make.

Nikki and I had a blast reading it. The best part is that Nikki was able to read the words as we went along and that made my heart skip a beat. She can now read the story to her Dada who will be so proud to hear her first words in a story form.

Therefore, it is no surprise that for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5+++ Dads out of 5! We do have a message for Mr. Jimmy Fallon, keep writing beautiful books and showing us how much love our children have for us as parents. Whether it is Mama or Dada, they are both loving parents who at the end of the day love their children with all their hearts. Thank you!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!

Perfect Gift For The Super Dad In Your Life

Many of us feel that our dads carry with them super powers as they seem to do things that no one else can do. Dads hold special places in the hearts of their children and it is important for us to acknowledge how important dad is. This is why we have the perfect gift idea for Father’s Day that your little one or even an older child can give to their “Super Dad.”

I See Me Books has done it again with another great personalized book to mark another great occasion, Father’s Day. We got the first look at a new book at I See Me Books called, Super Dad! 

This book is fitting for our home as my daughter has been obsessed with superheroes and her daddy is her super dad. So let’s say that its the perfect gift.

In I See Me Books style, it is personalized in the most adorable way and that is what makes it so special. You get to customize dad (you can use a photo of dad or just use one of their cartoon images) for the book by picking some features and then the book is put together into a super story.

The book highlights some of dads super abilities on just about everything and it is done is super fashion. But above all it shows us that the one thing that the child loves the best is the time that they get from dad. Now that is a super power that is above all the rest!

Super Dad has made it onto our most recommended list as it makes the perfect gift for Father’s Day or even just as an “I Love You” gift for dad. Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 5+++ SUPER POWERS out of 5! We love the personalization of every detail (you must pay attention to all the little details in the book) and we love how it highlights dads. It really is a good feel book for dad and we know that he will love it as much as we do.

We at Momma Braga always go the extra mile and since this book is about dad, we asked dad himself on his thoughts of this book. It was an early Father’s Day gift but it was imperative that we gave our readers advance notice of a great gift idea so it was all worth it.

Here is our quick book presentation with my husband (Nikki’s dad):

Nikki: Here daddy. We have a special book for you.
Daddy: Let me see.
Nikki: You are my superhero!
Daddy: (Tears in his eyes) I LOVE IT! Wow! My face is everywhere. This is REALLY cool! 

That same night my husband read the book to Nikki with such pride in his eyes and to me that was the perfect moment for all of us.

It is amazing to think that one book, through personalization and words brought so much joy and love to our home. Thank you I See Me Books for another masterpiece to our personalization library. If you would like to purchase this lovely book for the super dad in your life, click here.
