Dada: Dada can mean many things, but it is overall the sound of contentedness. As in, I'm such a happy baby, I'm warm and safe and secure, and playing, and gosh darnit I'm so tootin' cute. Dadadadadadadada.
Mama: Mama has its own meaning as well, and it connotes a time of great sorrow and want. As in, I'm cold and my diaper is full and I'm kind of hungry and my toes are cold because I lost a sock and the parrot just scared me and you just took away that sharp object I just found to play with and I'm tired but I certainly don't want to nap, woe is the baby. Mamamamamamamamamama.
So, as Dan is quite quick to point out: Dada = utter happiness. Mama = infinite sorrow.
