Toddler Tales (11): Expressing Himself

Since he started speaking, Little Dude has been focusing on his language. But more importantly, he is now trying to use his ever-expanding vocabulary to communicate. I think that is a very important development for any child. He doesn't need to cry for everything anymore! He uses a combination of gestures, words and actions to convey things. He communicates what he wants, what he wants to do, what he doesn't want to do (very often!) and also what he likes. It's interesting how he copies certain actions he has seen others do and associates them with something. So, 'dancing' is how he says he wants to watch a video (oh yeah, that's still happening!). He can swing a bat like he sees his dad or other kids. He even imitates how other kids talk or cry. I think this means that he is keen to speak and learn new things, and now he is more influenced by what he sees us and other people do.

(Toddler Tales are snippets of what I'm learning every day from my little one.)

Toddler talk can be a fun challenge. My middle daughter used to point at everything and say, "Ringa." It took us a good four months to finally figure out that "Ringa" meant "Finga = Finger."

How interesting! Sometimes, when he says 'balloon', it sounds like 'bun'!
