My son is turning two this week and I get such a kick out of his speech. Today I FINALLY figured out that "da dice!" means "Not nice!" Seems so clear now I don't know why it took me so long to figure that one out. haha
What are some of your toddlers more difficult phrases to understand?
My son was like that too. At his 18 month check up he only had a handful of words and he used them rarely. The pediatrician told me to keep working with him and if he didn't improve after a few months to come back. But he did. Suddenly about a month or two later he started picking up a lot of words. Most of them are not perfect but he's got a good size vocab now.
My ddi s almost 17 months now and still non-verbal. But I understand her babbles, cause she points as she babbles and knows a few signs and bables while signing.
I love the fact that she tries, just no acutal words, but yet she sings. lol she babbles to the tune of her favorite songs so I always know when she is singing them.
I am not sure why her speech is behind, cause we work on it daily, but she is just not saying "real" words yet. *shrugs* she still gets her point across with her pointing though.
My son has been saying Bobby! loudly for a long time. And he woudl look at me when he says it. But for the longest time we thought he was just saying those two syllables randomly. But, apparently, I'm not Mommy....I'm Bobby! Oh well LOL
My 2 year old substitutes /p/ for /f/ and -th. So, she's "persey" when she's thirsty. She is always asking me things like "are we eating brocoli poor (for) supper?" or "Is this bag poor grandma's house?" I kinda love it! :)
DD will be 2 next week and she says all kinds of things! She say something like "I'm in!" And it took me forever to realize she is saying "I win!" Lol. Now I get why she runs ahead of me all the time saying it! Lol! She say "fuck" for fox and frog. "Boo" is blue. " I yu woo" I love you. And so much more I can't think of currently :)
