Words: Something I think I take for granted. The ability to speak and communicate as freely as I want, when I want. I don’t remember a time I didn’t have words.
It’s taken a little time for Little D to start using understandable words. He was only 2 at the end of November and he’s always been always been very
loud chatty. The past month or so, he has been really trying to copy everything we say (which means I need to cut down on the swearing) and he is loving using the new words he has learnt. Everyone says it, I know, but I can’t believe how quickly he is growing up! It’s bittersweet really, I don’t want him to grow up however I love watching him learn new things and grow up!
So, I’ve been listening really carefully and I’ve put together a little list of Little D’s favourite words. Let’s call it;
My Favourite Words To Use by Little D
When he first started shouting this from his cot, it took us about 3 hours to work out he was shouting MILK! It was kind of a slap in the face moment (me, not him) as we had never heard him try and say this before. Now he demands it before bed. Every. Single. Night.
He may have accidentally, once caught a bit of Jurassic World when he awoke from his nap early. Now he bloody loves this film and loves to shout “DISORE” at the top of his lungs when he wants to watch the dinosaurs! I’m pretty sure at the moment these are his favourite animals. I know what your thinking, he’s too young to watch Jurassic World (and yes, I’ve tried to entice him with films like the Good Dinosaur but he has none of it!) but he loves to sit and watch it and act out the dinosaur scenes with his little plastic disore’s and it’s just too cute to not have happening in my house!
Before Jurassic World became the firm favourite, Little D loved Toy Story. He even has full size Rex and Woody toys and used to have Buzz. That was his fave, but a terrible accident happened and his head fell off! The circumstances surrounding Buzz’s decapitation are still a mystery to this day and he was upset when we couldn’t fix him. Now he has a smaller Buzz which he must take up to bed.
At the moment I have a love/hate relationship with this word. He used to say “Mumma” but not very often. Recently he has started saying “Mummy” and actually pronouncing it like he should. It’s super cute but also super annoying at times. For those you who have seen the Family Guy clip of Stewie saying “Mum” over and over again, it’s a lot like that. For those who haven’t, take a look and you’ll see what I mean!
Little D loves to say goodbye to everything. TV programme ends – “Gah-Gah”. We leave the house – “Gah-Gah”. He tries to leave the house – “Gah-Gah”. We leave anywhere at all – “Gah-Gah”. Daddy leaves the house – SCREAMS!
No gets used a lot, like all the time. Now he knows what it means, we can never do anything he doesn’t want to do ever again. If “No” doesn’t work the first thousand times he says it, then he moves on to his second favourite way of communicating – shrieking (which usually does the trick – such a sh*t parent!)
Last but not least. Everything is also now “Mine” which can be quite difficult sometimes when it’s something that is quite clearly mine! Most things hes touches now are his. He’s claimed them, no one else can go near him after he has announced to the world that that object is now in fact “MINE”!
It makes me smile, listening to him picking up and repeating new words. This was going to be a post on translating my 2 year old’s language but as I started writing down the words he uses I thought it was much nicer having a little explanation of how he likes to use these words. Also, I’d like to point out that he does say other words, but I definitely think these are his favourites!
What words do you think your children love to use? Even though it’s cute, are there any that get repeated a bit too much?
