Chatterbox

I'm not one to brag, Dear Reader, but Grace has become quite the little chatterbox these days.

Okay, maybe I am. Sorry about that.

She's not ready to give any speeches just yet, but Grace is talking. Joe and I wrote down the words she's saying consistently:

Uh oh
More
Boom
Go
Kitty
Dog
Blanket
Ball
Baby
Woof
Moo
Bye bye
Hello
Hey
Hi & hi ya
Goody goody
Momma
Dada
Grandma
Amanda
Nana
Eye
No
Yes
Shoe
That
Birdie
Out
School
Down
Tickle tickle

She's also signing consistently:

More
Help
Stop
Eat
Drink
Touchdown (means football to Grace)
All gone/All done

I don't think it's a coincidence that most of the words are commands like (let's) go, (put me) down, and (I want to) eat. Grace has learned quickly that she can communicate her desires to us, and we'll take care of them.

Unless they're unreasonable, like I want more chocolate! More! More! MORE!

She must've learned that one from her dad.

  1. This is so funny. My Gracie is getting very verbal, as well. I have been keeping a list and planned to do a post like this one, this week. So, when I post mine, don’t think I was copying you. 🙂 So much fun. I love to hear my Grace talk and sing. I know you are loving this time with your Grace. Arent’ they wonderful!
    BTW, for size comparison. I took Grace, on Friday, to the doctor, for her cold. She weighs 23 pounds.

  3. I taught my older two the basics of sign language when they were younger and do the same with my 2 year old. She says more, walk, run, sit, drink, eat, all done, girl, boy, and candy of course (I did NOT teach that one! LOL).

  5. Elizabeth says “Dada” and that’s it. The doctors told us to work on it but if I’ve learned nothing in the last 15 months is that Elizabeth operates on her own schedule. I guess we’re meeting her needs well enough or she’d speak up :):)
