She's definitely talking! "Mama sleep. Mama tired." Identifies and describes something, and there's even cause/effect in there. So I'm impressed. I would love to think Seamus "talks," but really he just says Hi to absolutely everyone and everything in the house (except for me of course).



Also, I've been told that Jammy understands Hebrew and can repeat Hebrew words with zero accent!

Re: What counts as a toddler sentence?

I have a seventeen month old daycare boy who speaks entire sentences while making it sound like one word.

"I'magooutside". "I'magonnatry" "Where'samypanacake" Cracks me up...but, I consider it a sentence.
