The past few days have been chock full of special milestones for our son, Judah: his first word, his first Thanksgiving and his first Hanukkah! We’ve been looking forward to celebrating our baby’s first Hanukkah as it marks the start of building new traditions together as a new family. For the first night of Hanukkah, we had a small celebration with traditional foods and songs at our home; we headed to his Nana and Pop-Pop’s house for Thanksgivukkah the next day.
Dreidels, latkes and eight nights of fun: it’s our baby’s first Hanukkah! Check out our Disney Story of Judah’s fantastic first Hanukkah celebration. Happy Hanukkah, little munchkin!
Two years and and two Thanksgivings ago, I stopped to pause and reflect on what I was thankful for that year. It was hard; I had just left my office job to start a freelancing career of my own just a week before Thanksgiving. We knew that my leaving a comfortable salaried position meant that starting fertility treatments might take even more time.
Last year at Thanksgiving, I was exactly 10 weeks pregnant: we were so incredibly lucky, blessed and fortunate that our first IVF cycle was a success. And in just two days, our 6 month old son will celebrate his very first Thanksgiving.
To say I am ever thankful this year is an understatement.
Our timing with introducing Judah to solids couldn’t have worked out more perfectly… it’s all been leading up to THE foodie holiday of the year: Thanksgiving! Since he first started solids, we’ve been slowly introducing him to new flavors and foods with Thanksgiving in mind: green beans, carrots, potatoes and turkey. Now, when we sit down at the table, Judah will be able to share a little bit of our Thanksgiving feast with us by having a little of each Thanksgiving favorite all on one plate.

It all started early Thursday morning. Just before my husband left for work, Judah rolled over on the bed and clear as day said, “Baba!” I did a double take and Judah said it again, bringing his hands to his mouth like he was trying to drink from a bottle. At first we just thought it was a fluke, but since then, he’s been saying “baba!” before every meal. It seems like it’s not so much a direct representation of “bottle” but more “I’m hungry – let’s eat!”
We know it’s super early for baby’s first word; Judah is just over six months old. But the more we hear him say “baba” as he associates it with meals, the more we’re starting to think that it might be his first word after all.
