Why 'Mama' and 'Dada' are baby's first words

Have you noticed it? I even heard Dannielle saying like Dada. I can not wait til she can really utter the word mama. I am getting so excited!

Beyond the obvious — Mommy and Daddy are around a lot and babies are drawn to them — languages in many cultures have apparently made the task easy by creating words for mothers and fathers that feature patterns of repeating sounds, a new study suggests. Continuation here.
