Things my toddler can say…

As the weeks go on R is improving so much with her speech, she’s now super expressive and it honestly continues to amaze me how much she’s improving in such a tiny space of time,

It still feels like yesterday that she was a tiny little squeaky newborn but we are now slowly reaching her second birthday and it’s sad but wonderful seeing her grow and learn.

So now that we are at 19 months I felt like it would be great to give an update on what she can say now. To view what she said at 17 months you can find the post here.

  • Loki’ – she used to just say ‘cat’ repeatedly but lately R has started saying the cats actual name which is so cute! She will now stand at the baby gate yelling ‘Loki!!’ to get his attention.
  • Socks‘ and ‘shoes’ – she doesn’t fully say those two words but more of a shuuee sound which is directed at her shoes and socks so it’s pretty clear what she’s attempting to say.
  • Amelia‘ – we never expected this one, much like ‘shoe’ she’s attempting the sound and will say ‘amelma’ which is always directed at our middle child.
  • Dadda‘ – everyone’s first word, but it’s now shouted to get Mr S’s attention and sometimes followed by a ramble of sounds like a conversation.
  • Mumma‘ – another surprising one, not often uttered but is aimed at me, when I prompt her to say it she will say ‘dada’ out of spite but I do get shouted at on occasion haha
  • Nana‘ – Nana is nice and easy, she squeals it when my mum turns up at the house.
  • Taaa‘ – this has been going on for a bit but it’s now obvious what she is saying, said when she’s either wanting something or giving something, manners at their finest.
  • Bye’ and ‘night night‘ – she’s always waved but now she will wave and say bye to anyone who’s getting a coat on, and when it comes to her bed time she will go around the house saying ‘naai’ to everyone which is her way of saying ‘goodnight’
  • Copying us when we count ‘one two three‘ – Mr S got her to start this one, she has no clue what she’s doing but will gladly and proudly repeat back at us ‘un, tooo, feeee, foooor’ she’s happy and the other two children love making her repeat it back to them.
  • Bum‘ – pretty self explanatory, said whenever she sees a nappy because we call nappies ‘bums’ after saying ‘change your bum’ many times.

Each month is something new and I can’t wait for what she will learn to say next which I will of course update you on.

Until next time

    This so cute – I love their little sounds at this age – like the fact Henry says ‘ocks’ for socks

    Aw that’s so sweet! It’s such a great post to write because apart from my first word, I don’t really know what other words I was saying haha! It’ll be an amazing post to read when she’s older x

    Wow, she knows a lot! My daughter is 22 months and I swear she talks like she knows what she’s saying. It’s a bunch of gibberish but it’s so cute!

    Amelia is very impressive! My brother called me “ee-yah” when he was little because he couldn’t get all the syllables.

      It’s more of a ‘umlema’ sound but it’s directed at Amelia, it’s quite sweet hearing it
