Lilah will be 1 on May 20th and she has just had a word explosion - it seemed that about a week after she learned to walk, she started working on talking.
She only has a couple words right now - she says "hot" (when she sees me drinking my tea), "hi" (she'll hold any object up to her head like she's talking on the phone and say "hi") and "baby" (she says baba in the high pitched voice she reserves for animals and babies!). She says mama and dada randomly too, but doesn't use them to address us yet I don't think....though she definitely knows who we are because every night when DH gets home I say to Lilah "is Dada home??" and her eyes go huge, she starts squealing and walks as fast as she can towards the door!
She also pushes the Barbie car around going "vroom vroom vroom" over and over and over again.
Jo is definitely a talkative munchkin. She gets a new word what seems like every day. We are probably up to 20-25 by now. She uses a few more regularly than others and uses them in various situations (like uh-oh for both dropping something and when she sees someone fall down). She will combine "hi" and "bye" with another word ("hi dog" "bye mama"). But mostly she just uses one word demands. Her current favorites are bye-bye, night-night, uh-oh, and ball. She also calls each of her brother by their name...which sounds nothing like their real names. But she is big on calling them right now. Oh, and cup...she loves to demand her cup.
Anna is starting to get very vocal. Sometimes it is hard though to tell if she is actually saying a word or if I am just hearing what I want to hear. Some of the definites are mama, dada, Duke (our dog), Kiki (our turtle), hi, again, and book.
Just "mama" and "dada" for sure, then a plethora of other noises I can't tell are supposed to be words or not. I think she has tried to say "book" and "kitty" a few times, though! When we were visiting my family, they were sure she was saying all sorts of words, but I think it was just in their imaginations.
