The moment any child says its first word is always special – until they make one big mistake!
Father Adam Stanley, 29, was ecstatic when his 7-month-old son, Leroy, said ‘Mumma’ as his first word.
But he was REALLY ecstatic when he said it, not to his mother, but to the family dog Julia.
Adam from Channelview, Texas, said: “Leroy had been babbling the “ma” syllable at varying interviews- sometimes he would say it repeatedly, sometimes just once.
“He had been babbling this way and I wanted to catch him saying it on video, so I could show Cassie [his mum].
“The dog happened to be sitting right in front of Leroy when I captured the video and he seemed to direct it at Julia.”
