My Baby's Voice

I have a 14 month old son and recently he started saying real, intelligible words! In fact, his first word was "Daddy"! You can imagine how happy I was!
I have made a voice blog and will be periodically posting my son's word of the day; his mother speaks to him in Japanese and I speak to him in English so it will be interesting to see how his language develops. The site is in Japanese and English. The link to the voice blog is here.

Hey Jamie! This is a great way to report the process of language acquisition.

I have sent the link to my colleagues in the Masters Program in Applied Linguistics at Universidad Simon Bolivar in Caracas, Venezuela.

Way to go! and thanks for sharing :-)

Hi Paddyg,
Thanks for your interest in the voice blog. The following link, http://www.voiceblog.jp/jamie/ , works for me. The site is in Japanese and English. If your computer cannot show Japanese characters and you are using internet explorer, then a pop-up window should appear asking you if you want to download a Japanese character add-in. Perhaps, this could be causing you some kind of problem?
