Bryce said his first “sentence” this weekend! In fact, he said two! On Saturday Brian was gone all day and at one point I had told Bryce that Daddy went bye bye. A little while later we were goofing off and I asked him “Where’s Daddy?” and he said “Dada bye bye!” I was so proud! To top that, though, later that evening he pointed to his ear drops and said “Mommy ear” and then motioned to his ear.
I am so glad his vocabulary is finally taking off! For me, from around 12 months until these kids really start talking is rough. They know what they want and have their own thoughts, but they can’t express them with words, which is frustrating for them. That frustration quickly leads to temper tantrums and crying fits, which are no fun for anyone.
By the time Rylie was this age (18 months), she was a pro at two word sentences, and was putting three or four words together easily. I remember that when Bryce was born (she was 20 months) she was talking up a storm and seemed like such a big girl to me. I try very hard not to compare Bryce to her, but obviously sometimes I slip up and I do. I wasn’t worried over his lack of vocabulary, since he understands everything we say and communicates with us in other ways (sign language, pointing, etc), I just know that life will get easier for all of us once he starts talking better.
I can’t wait to hear what his little voice really sounds like, and all of the funny ways he will say new words! I think my favorite with Rylie was “orange”, which she pronounced “eechew”. I have absolutely no idea why she said it like that, but it was so cute to me. I loved when she would get up in the morning and say “I want some eechew juice please.” I think I was honestly sad when she learned how to say “orange”.
What was your favorite word that your kid(s) pronounced incorrectly? I would love to hear some cute stories!
