*Disclaimer: This is a shameless rip-off of something LauraC did a few years ago when her boys were toddlers.
Over the past year, one of our biggest concerns (our only concern really) about Jr. has been his language skills. Or lack thereof, I guess. He has always made alot of noise, babbling and yelling and mimicking sounds. But it's only been recently, right around when he turned two, that he has said words we can actually understand. Mommy. Daddy. J. Kitty and doggy. Shoes, hat, socks. Juice, milk, water, cheese, pancakes, food, EAT! Outside, slide, plane, sky.
There are, however, many words that he says on a regular basis that have taken much gesturing and frustration for us to decipher. Words I actually wrote down for the babysitter so she wouldn't spend the whole day having no clue what he wants. So here's a little game: can you figure out what these words mean? Some of them are seriously random but he says all of these almost every day. I've put some context in parenthese to be helpful :)
1. "Nonnie" (That's Nonnie!)
2. "Coodie" (We play coodie?)
3. "Pin-pins" (We play pin-pins?)
4. "Fuffins" (Have fuffins, please?)
5. "Kennies" (I have kennies?)
6. "Teen tine" (Want teen tine.)
7. "Note-neal" (Note-neal please?)
8. "Spa-doh" (Noooo! Spa-doh!!)
Practice makes perfect
