Our little man is 16 months old and he is running and climbing and drawing and exploring and 'reading' and most of all talking like there's no tomorrow.
Jacob met a pony on Sunday and as "hoirse" (horse) was one of his first words he was pretty excited!
He has so many words and repeats everything we say. It's so much fun talking to him and knowing that he understands and he can tell me what he wants and he even says "peese" (please) when he wants something!
I was chatting to a friend the other day about all this talking and she said that now her little one is talking so much better she misses the unusual ways that he used to say certain words that only she could understand. This got me thinking and there is something really special about talking to a little person who you know so well - it's almost like a secret language that you share and I'm definitely making the most of it now I have realised it's not going to last long.
Here are some of my favourites...
"bap" (tummy / belly)
"Bibi" (Auntie Abi)
and last but probably our favourite...
Each day there is something new and I get scared when I see all these grown up boys running around and being so independent, one day our little man is goin to be like that and I know it's going to happen really quickly. Time is so precious and I will definitely have my 'shidies' open for all his new special words.
What are your favourite 'baby words'?
