Arthur’s speech at 2 years old

So I wasn’t going to make this into a blog post, but I thought it was the best way to make sure I don’t lose it!!

I wanted to record where Arthur is at with his speech.   We don’t know anyone here who has kids the same age as Arthur (we know people with kids a year older and a year younger but obviously there’s huge changes in a year!)
So we don’t really have any comparisons we can make to judge where he’s at with his speech!
Arthur's speech at 2 years old

So, here’s a bit about Arthur’s speech at 2 years old!

He’s not yet really putting any words together, we’ve had:
“Bye Daddy”
“Bye Mummy”
we are also getting “Oh dear”
Other than that though words are pretty much singular.

I hadn’t considered that this was potentially a problem until I got a monthly email from Babycentre where it was saying that at 2 kids can put up to 3 words together and I had a bit of a panic!

I realised when writing this list out that he had more words than I knew!  Also, he can communicate with us just fine and so I need to put any possible worry out of my mind (something deep down I knew anyway of course!)

In the last few weeks he has gained so many new words, he’s definitely on a bit of a word spurt (is that a thing!?)

There are probably words I have missed off here but it was really nice to have a general idea of where Arthur is at!

My big fat pregnant Saturday night!

  • Still cant quite believe that soon she will be having another baby!!
  • Has only just realised in the last couple weeks that I need to slow down a little this pregnancy (in my 3rd trimester!)
  • Hopes more than anything that Arthur and his baby brother will be the best of friends!
  • Is so proud of having her babies abroad, and the life that they will have because of it!
  • At the same time feels guilty for having babies away from their grandparents.
  • Has diagnosed her son with every illness known to man, thanks to Dr. Google!! (He’s always totally fine of course!)
  • After two years falls more in love with Arthur everyday!
  • Knows that this little boy bump is coming into such a loving family, and can’t wait for him to be here!
