We've had some crazy language development in the past month or so!
Luke has been slower in the language department than Gracie. While Gracie has been talking (baby babbling) for some months now, he's only really gotten going in the last couple of months. This morning he was talking up a storm. I have no idea what he was saying, but he was very proud of himself. He says Daddy/Dada, Mommy (Only when he wants something. Otherwise, I'm Daddy too). He also says DA! for anything he gets really excited about. We try to always say the word for him so that he will get it. In the last few days, he has been saying, "Oh, wow!" He loves to make the "oh" shape with his mouth. I also realized today that he has a word for Gracie. It's Day-Dee (can't you see Gracie in there?).
Gracie proudly says Daddy, Kukie (Lukie), Mommy (or Memmy depending on how desperately she wants to talk to me), mas (more), agua (water), baby, ball, buba (bubbles). She may have more, I'm trying to pay close attention to everything she says.
Both Gracie and Luke understand a lot more than we realized.
Give it to Mommy.
Do you want to go splash/splash? (bath)
Are you hungry?
March. March. March.
They will also pat each other when they are sad, hurt, or upset. We are trying to get it all on video, but we always seem to forget!
We promise to be more diligent!
