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!

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift From Your Little One

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, many start to wonder what would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift from a little one. I have often thought about that same very question myself and I have found the most perfect gift.

Let me introduce you to, Everything Is Mamma by Jimmy Fallon. Jimmy is one of the most popular entertainers in the world and NBC’s Tonight Show host. Therefore it is no surprise that he would write an adorable book just for Mama!

Now as a mom I know all to well of the “Everything Is Mamma” phase and with a three-year old daughter it is still all about Mamma (even if dad is right beside her, it is still always mamma). I have to admit that at times it is a little much but then I remember how we are their whole world so how can we blame them. 😉

This book is just that. Jimmy tells the story of animal mamas teaching their children different words; however, they only pick up on “Mama.” By the end of the book, the message is loud and clear. To our children it is all about Mama and to Mama they are our EVERYTHING! Such an important and beautiful message for our children to hear. We just loved this book so much that we are constantly reading it.

I need to mention that Nikki loved the book so much that she has memorized the momma and child parts of the book. Now she might have just memorized it but at the end of the day I was extremely proud that she was reading it! This is an amazing great start in my books so thank you Jimmy!

For this #MelAndNikkiReview we give Everything Is Mamma, 5 Mammas out of 5! It was simple to read, flowed nicely, illustrations were beautifully done and most important the message was spot on. This is why we think this would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift for any Mamma. Besides Mother’s Day is Everything About Mamma so why not get a book about her too! 😉

To purchase this lovely book, click here. Remember to hug your mom tightly and let her know how much you love her as moms are truly the best!

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
