Toddlers & Preschoolers Toddlers & Preschoolers

My son is turning two this week and I get such a kick out of his speech. Today I FINALLY figured out that "da dice!" means "Not nice!" Seems so clear now I don't know why it took me so long to figure that one out. haha

What are some of your toddlers more difficult phrases to understand?

My toddler was oddly easy for me to understand, although I was having to do some translating for her until she was just over two. For awhile, graham crackers were "gogas", but she didn't have too many words like that. She's about the height of the average 18 month old (despite being 33 months), but speaks better than some 3 year olds, so it's funny to see strangers get caught off-guard by her speaking.

my daughter has been saying something that sounds like "One-E" I finally figured out she was saying "want any" lol. Also, she said what sounds like "caillou" but she's saying "got you"

 One time my SIL watched my girl and couldn't understand why she kept asking, insistently and desperately, for "pee brrr."  Of course, my SIL kept trying to bring her to the potty, but that only frustrated my daughter more.

At pick up, she told me it started after she'd given all the kids Ritz crackers for a snack. Turns out, I'd never given her Ritz crackers without peanut butter before.

So cute..a lot of my 19 months old words have such a similar sound at the end. I love how she says "more" right now, it is so funny

My daughter does the sining too..it is so funny, she will get in the right tune/pitch. But just be sounds..lol

 My ddi s almost 17 months now and still non-verbal. But I understand her babbles, cause she points as she babbles and knows a few signs and bables while signing.


I love the fact that she tries, just no acutal words, but yet she sings. lol she babbles to the tune of her favorite songs so I always know when she is singing them.


I am not sure why her speech is behind, cause we work on it daily, but she is just not saying "real" words yet. *shrugs*  she still gets her point across with her pointing though.

My son has been saying Bobby! loudly for a long time.  And he woudl look at me when he says it.  But for the longest time we thought he was just saying those two syllables randomly.  But, apparently, I'm not Mommy....I'm Bobby!  Oh well LOL
