Talks with babies

Gibson is starting to "talk" more, so we have lots of conversations during the day.  My goal, of course, is for him to say "mama" before he says anything else.  But so far, my efforts have not been fruitful.  That could be because he hates me.  Or because he's only six months old.  One of the two.

Here are some examples of actual conversations that Gibson and I have had:

Mom: Gibson, can you say "mama?"
Gibson: *giggle*
M: "Maaaaaama."
G: Buh...bleh...*dinosaur noise*
M: Gibson!  "Mama!"  Can you say it?  "Mamamamamamama."
G: *high-pitched squeal that sounds like two pieces of styrofoam rubbing together*
M: Ok, then.  Can you say "dada?"
G: Blehhhhh.
M: "Dada!"  It will make daddy happy!
G: Booooffffffffff.
M: You're obviously a genius.

M: Hi, Gibson!
M: What are you doing?
G: Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.
M: Can you say "mama?"
G: Boooofffff. *spit bubbles*
M: Can you say "Ellie?"
M: Alright then.

G: Bloof, boof, bleh.
M: Oh yeah?  Tell me more!
G: *silence*
M: You're done talking?  I want to hear your story!
G: *silence*
M: Fine, I didn't want to talk to you anyway.
G: *giggle*

So there you go.  A peek into our day.  Needless to say, I'm pretty excited for Gibson to start actually talking someday.
