Things my toddler can say..

I always hate calling her a toddler, but at the ripe old age of 17 months, she is now officially classed as a toddler, no longer my tiny little baby.. to much of my sadness..

When my other two started saying words, they did it at completely different times, K’s first word was ‘Cat’ and ‘Car’ when he was around the age of 2, A’s first word was ‘Kai’… her brothers name, at around 15 months old.

R has a few words under her belt now, which i’m surprised by seeing as she is only just 17 months old, here’s what she can say ;

  • ‘Kai’ of course, its nice and easy and we say it enough that shes bound to have picked it up at some point.
  • ‘Cat’ or repeated ‘cat cat cat cat’ usually accompanied with the sound our cat Loki makes which is a ‘aoooooowwww’ sound.
  • ‘No’ another word which is used a lot around the house, cant have children without using the N word haha.
  • ‘Uh Oh!’ while this isn’t exactly a word it is still a sound that she makes if she drops something, its really cute when she says it.
  • ‘Mmm’ another sound, which means one thing only, her high chair, shes been making this sound since she was a year old and whenever she says it we know exactly what shes on about.
  • ‘Gee’ a gee is a dummy, we’ve always called dummies ‘gee’s… Mr S is sure its spelt ‘Gii’ but to me it sounds more of a Gh-eee sound.
  • ‘Done’ we aren’t sure if this is either done or down, she will often say it after finishing her food while she is in her high chair.
  • ‘Oh Dear’ we say this one a lot so its no surprising that shes also picked it up as well.

and finally

  • ‘Bob’ Bob is her little cuddly robin toy, shes had him since she was tiny, I think I even ordered it when I was still sitting in hospital after I had her, sometimes it comes out as ‘od’ or ‘baaaw’ but its pretty clear who she is talking about.

Each day shes getting more confident with her chatting, most words get used daily and I am always excited to see what new words she picks up as she grows..

and she is growing far to quickly for my liking!

until next time

    According to my parents when I was a toddler (back in the stone age) one of my very first words was “Duck” I was very keen to prove to people I knew what a duck was, and therefore everytime I SAW a duck (real or plastic) I would point and say “DUCK!” very loudly over and over.. people assumed this to be my liking of ducks. (I can’t say/remember if I ever really had an opinion either way.. as an adult I only care if there’s plenty of hoisin sauce with them 😉 )

    however, as an only child with many elderly relatives I apparently ended up with an impressive and sizable collection of the little yellow blighters XD

    sigh.. if only my first words had been “Ten pound note!” 😉

    My daughter is getting the hang of Kai. She’s can say shoes, juice, bye, all gone, mam, dada x

    This is so cute – my daughter was a really early talker but my son is less so.

    Awww this is cute! I used to say “flying Pooh!” a lot because of one Winnie-the-Pooh cartoon!
