Even though Parker has caught on to a few words, I think he had his first official non-mama word the other day: cheese.
He said it during lunch yesterday and it sounded kind of like "tease", so when I told April about it this morning we trtied to see if he'd say it again. He seems to really like eating cheese, so I took a Babybell out of the fridge and we showed it to him. After we said cheese a few times, he smiled and responded with, "CH-eese!" There was much clapping and eating of cheese, and now he gets all excited when you bring it up. So if you're hanging out with Parker and are looking for conversation pieces, I suggest going with cheese.
