She Speaks!

August 20, 2008

Yes, at 2 ½ years old, Baby Bug is finally starting to speak in small sentences. Granted, it’s still hard to understand her and she does make up her own words at times but at least I know we’re moving in the right direction.

In fact, just the other day she said, “Momeee, dat my dee assssss!”

Yup, that’s my girl! ;-)

Our kids sound one and the same. Both the same age and same verbal abilities. My son talks but 80% of the time we’re going “Huh? What?”. Luckily he has no interest in his sister’s “dee assss”. Yet.

My son is the same age and at the same stage - I love it. Except that all of a sudden he repeats everything we say!! Ohhh it’s dangerous! lol

She’s adorable. In a couple of months you will LONG for the days when she was quiet! *LOL*

My daughter’s current favorite saying (of mine) is, “Brian’s being DISCO-bedient!”

I remember getting excited when my first grandson finally started communicating with odd little words.
I was so excited — and then my sisters granddaughter who was a month younger came popping in and said, “Hi, do you want to come play with me and my dollhouse?”

That’s cute. It’s neat that you blog about it because sooner than you can imagine she will speak in full sentence without any toddler words..

But once she starts talking, you’ll wish she would be quiet. ha ha. AT least that is how it was with Brandon.

She is such a cutie!

That’s awesome!

Jack just loves “dog” & “uh oh”
Looking forward to sentences. Maybe a ways off, he’s 22 months and no older siblings to learn from.

LOL - toddler talk is the best. I love trying to figure out what my kids say, especially when they talk too fast.

Love the pink “dee assssss” I just won one and am trying to find games - looks like Baby Bug has something she likes :)

Kailani, what is her expected language progression? My son began speech therapy at 2.5 and worked with his SLP until the age of 7. And yes, there are days I long for peace and quiet again. ;)
