Chatty boy!

My son has always been ahead in terms of his verbal skills, which means I gasp and gush over everything he says all the time! He is currently 20 months old.

So I though I would share some of his tidbits for you, since I am linking up the “Reasons to be Cheerful” linky:

  • He can count to 7! Ok, he won’t say 1 or 5, but he does say the rest in order ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Every time he says hippopotamus it comes out differently e.g spodgopotumus, hopopotmus, spusamus.
  • He can say almost every farm animal (peekaboo barn iPhone app really helps) except he flat out refuses to say pig, just does the noise every time!
  • He often repeats whole sentences that I say to him or to daddy, e.g daddy can I have the car key please.
  • He sings along to my music sometimes, there is a song called “Moving on” by Mya, and he sings along going “mooooving onnnnnnnn, moving onnnnn!” soooo cute!
  • He can say many different vehicles including motorbike, firetruck, lorry etc.

So for those any many other reasons, I am cheerful. I love hearing him speak and learning new words every day, it is magical.

  1. Very sweet. My favourite little person phrase was “Dagan” used for thank you – Germain? -, and we still use it ourselves. I love the way children learn to be part of our adult world.

    • I know, it’s amazing the words and phrases they come out with. The other day, he shouted down stairs the word that I call my husband (I don’t call him by his name, but by a pet name), it was so cute!

  2. It’s amazing how quickly they learn so much, isn’t it?! Brilliant times ahead for you too ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks for commenting! I definitely agree, I can’t believe how much I love everything he does, but definitely his speech fascinates me more thank anything else.

  3. That is so sweet! My toddler can say the names of vehicles too, and his favourite number is eight! It’s funny how they will repeat your words unexpectedly!

    • Wow he has a favourite number, that’s cool!! It’s amazing actually how many more words and sentences he is saying since I posted this post a couple of weeks ago!
      Thanks for commenting. ๐Ÿ™‚
