My son is very articulate. When the doctor asked me how his language was coming, I said “he’s talking in paragraphs.” That’s not entirely true of course, but it’s darn close. He says things that I don’t think most 2 year olds say, and he’s been saying them for a few months now.
“Das is not a fire engine, das is a ambulance.”
“I tickled myself!”
“I’ll be right back. See you soon, Mama!”
“Hi Yellow Truck, I’m Jack. Nice to meet you.”
“Come wis me, Mama. Let’s go see Daddy!”
“Daddy, you’re home! I’ve been waiting for you!”
“I don’t want to get in my crib. I wanna sit on da floor. Yea, Mommy, you sit in da rocking chair and I sit on da floor. I don’t wanna be in my crib”
“Mommy yelled, ‘I want my shovel back!!!!’” (there’s a story behind this one I’ll post soon")
And twice now, he’s tried to get my attention or get me to give him what he wants by finally yelling:
“MANDA!! Get me my water!”
The doctor said he’s going to be hard to potty train. “The intelligent ones are the most stubborn ones to train.” Great.
