A Dictionary Of My Toddler's Vocabulary

By Naomi Odes |


Apo, anyone?

My 19-month-old has exploded with words this last month and a half. Around 17.5 months, I started writing them down (unlike my older child, whose words were written down the second he started saying them at 9 months). Every day there are new ones, and at this point, he’ll try to say almost everything in some way.

Remember  ”Ahhh-Dat!?” Coupled with screaming, it was all he did for a good long while. Then he started saying a few things here and there, and now, it’s like a volcano eruption of words all over our house.

Many of  the frequent ones are food-related, and you can pretty much tell his entire diet from his vocabulary, to say nothing of his toys of choice.

I’ve got quite a dictionary now. This is just a sample, a cross-section, if you will, of Fuzz’s linguistic waterfall:

    So cute! He’s such a big boy!!

    I am always sad when Makenna goes from saying something her way to saying it the right way. She used to call strawberries “dubie dubies”.
