(Lunch with Abuelita.)
We were having breakfast at home this morning and I asked him if he wanted more agua (Spanish for water and pronounced, by me anyway, as ah-wah). And he said "agua" reaching for his water container. Awesome! He did it a couple of more times after. So, I don't know what his first word was, and I never before had thought to consider that the declaration of a first word depends very much on the criteria decided on by the adults, but I'll declare now that today, Enzo definitely spoke a word clearly and with meaning.
Tami and I had wondered what the first word would be and whether it would be in English or Spanish. Agua makes sense as we say it often and consistently in Spanish. In fact, our family says agua as well when speaking to him, perhaps from hearing us say it so often instead of water. So this is one word where the bilingual input Enzo receives is minimized.

The first confirmed word of Enzo Raines has arrived. Agua.
