The other day I was excited to tell the mister that Bo was saying apple. AH-PUH, more like it, but close enough. Turns out that Bo had been saying apple for a while - just not to me. Also ball and apparently yogurt.
He's been pretty slow to talk compared to P. who by 13 months event had all sorts of things to say. Bo definitely knows how to say hi and bye, though he's been less clear on what bye actually means until this past weekend when it just kind of clicked.
He knows his apples, too, I guess.
With every other thing, he's still a little shaky on how words and stuff go together.
Pata - Pasta... or dinner. Or pancake. Or any food that's standard breakfast, lunch, or dinner fare.
Nana - Banana... or any fruit.
Mo - More, which he'll sometimes say when he's not signing it (which he doesn't do all that often).
Papa - Papa... or any man, whether they look like papa or not. Seriously, any male person.
Mama - Mama... or "Look at this thing!" Or just "Hey!"
Buhpa - Sister... or "Let me into sister's room." Or just stuff that belongs to P.
Buhbuh - Bubble, though sometimes it means whatever he's pointing to.
Buhoo - Balloon. (He really likes balloons.)
Buy - Ball.
Am I worried? Nah. Though it's not an uncommon worry, apparently. I figure he's trying to talk and that seems more important for right now than how well he talks. After all, he has a big sister who can do all the talking for him.
But still I'd love to hear from other mamas of later talkers!
