Yay! My 21 mo old is FINALLY starting to talk!!

She's a late talker (compared to my other two early talkers...) and I just wanted to share.

I am so excited b/c my baby just turned 21 mos old, and she is finally starting to communicate more, and trying to talk more. She only had maybe 5-10 words at 18 mos, so this is a big explosion over the past few weeks!!!

For all the other mamas out there worrying, it will happen.

She says:


Hi (hi)
By-ah (bye or bite, depending on the situation)
genn (again)
peas (please)
gay-coo (thank you)
cack (snack or cracker)
voovee (movie)
pop-pop! (grandpa)
dissss (kiss)
uggg (hug)
sigh (outside)
bun-nah (button)
moe (more)
mama
Gagnee (daddy)
Goggeee (doggy)
cat (cat)
cah (car)
tuck (truck)
book --- which is either drink or actually book - depending
Spy-buh-mah (Spiderman)
Buzz (Buzz Lightyear)
my (mine)
uh-uh or mmm-mmmm (no)
dess (yes)
Math-ath (Matthew, her brother)
DID IT! (I did it!)
Heeeep (help)
Dow (down)
gah (go)
smy (smile)
Cheee (cheese - like "cheese" let's take a picture.. .she usually brings me my camera saying this and wearing a big smile LOL)
Uck (NUK - what we call the pacifier)
Guckee (yucky)
uh oh (uh oh)
poppy (potty)
kie (cry)
dit (sit)
seep or beep (sleep)
nigh-nigh (night night)

...probably more I can't think of....

Amazing how fast it happened!!! I'm just excited I don't have to worry about her anymore.


oh and she has JUST started making a pretend burp and saying "Scooo me" (excuse me - she learned that from the two olders)

awww, so you know the excitement and giddyness I am feeling! lol.

I was just watching her toddle over to me and point to the crackers and say "GACK!" (for snack). I was kind of awe-struck and teary eyed. Cause I was worried there for a bit. My other two talked super early EARLY early. So it has been a bit of a roller coaster for me emotionally. And hard to be patient.

She kept saying "GACK! mama GACK!" Then I said "Snack?" She shook her head yes and said "GACK!!! GACK! pease!"

awww. my heart welled up. and I had to share with some fellow mamas.

yes it is so awesome!

even some other moms at our play group noticed her "chatting" more today

Dh still has a hard time understanding her so I have to interpret..."Gi-ga" is Daniel Tiger (her favorite PBS show)

All 3 of my kids were on the late side. My older 2 didn't start talking until after 2 and then all of a sudden they had a language explosion and were caught up in no time. My younger dd didn't have words at 16 months. At 17 months she had a few words and then bam she had the explosion and I had a long list I could write down and she started putting words together soon after. I love watching it in action! It can happen so fast.
