It’s amazing how much M’s communication skills have just blown up.  I know, I say it all the time, but I mean it every time.

“I found m&ms on the floor!”
“Get d’milk, in d’fridgerator”
“Marshall eats m&ms, it’s dee-licious!”

It’s also funny listening to her try to put together sentences.  Her sentence structure isn’t 100% complete, but she is trying.

“Cape, take it off, Elsa.”
“Snow monster, Rubble scare, him”

An article in Babycenter.com told me not to stop and correct her.  Instead, I repeat the sentence she said, but in the correct order.  Sometimes, she’ll repeat it correctly, other times, she says it the same way she said it the first time.  I know she’ll learn it correctly eventually.  I know I’ll miss her sentence structure when she outgrows it.

Hubby and I are just so amused.  Sometimes, we don’t even realize how well she can communicate with us.  We would ask her a question and we’d be surprised that she would answer us.  It makes us laugh so many times. 

Our little girl is really growing up.  I love watching her bloom.

With M’s two year old birthday quickly approaching, I’ve noticed a significant development in her language.

She’s gone from two word sentences to three word sentences AND she’s starting to show the ability to really hold a conversation.

She’s never been the type of kid that liked being force-fed lines.  She didn’t respond well to “M, say this” or “M, say that.

I could teach her an answer to something, and if she wanted to respond in that way, she would. 

I think that’s why it took her so long to acknowlege that her name was “M” and not “Picture.”

She’s a child with a definite mind of her own.  I absolutely love that about her.  It’s quite surprising finding out what she actually knows.

With that said, here are some examples:

M left her sippy cup of water on the counter of the master bathroom.  We walk down the hall and following conversation occurs.
Me:  Me, where’s your water?
M: (points towards master bathroom) There!  I saw it!

When pretend drinking or eating..
M: Mmm, drinking tea.  Delicious!
M:  (blows on spoon) Mimi, hot. Ahhh.  Delicious!

When she found her bottle on the floor..
Me:  M, why is your bottle on the floor?
M: I dropped it.

Whenever she wants something..
M: I haaaaaave it..

Those are just some examples that I can think of right now.  I’m sure there are so much more that Hubby or her grandparents could add to the list. 

What sort of things does your toddler say that totally surprises you?!

M has this facination with eggs.

Whenever we ask her what to eat, she’ll say “egg.”

In the future, when she askes me what her first sentence was, I’ll say:

“Go, ah eet egg.”
Go, I eat egg.

Yup, at seventeen months, her first documented four word sentence that was understandable and made perfect sense was, “Go, I eat egg.”

Of course, I made her eggs that morning, but the little booger didn’t eat it!

In fact, whenever she asks for eggs and I make them, she will only eat a few bites and the proceed to spit the rest out.

Yet, she continues to ask for eggs.

Oh, the joys of toddlerhood..
