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!
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:
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!
General & around the house
Thomas (as in the Tank Engine)
Cold (this is a/c or fridge related so not really outside!!)
Go (usually go go go)
Courtesy of the TV
Trousers (this is down to ITNG as Arthur NEVER wears them!)
Food & Drink
Gecko (said as two words gec-ko)
The almost there words
Balloon – boon
Skink – sink
Sleep- seeep (always whispered!)
Tomato – mato
I should probably go ahead and unsubscribe from those babycentre emails. They just do a good job of making me worry or feel bad about stuff!!
