Does your child have odd speech patterns/repeat words?
Typically, I have no concerns about my almost three year old's development, but she has a speech habit I've never heard before that has me puzzled. "Very" seems to be her favorite word, particularly when it's stuck to another "very." Here are some examples from today:
"I need veryvery, veryvery, veryvery, veryvery, veryvery, mine very own vitamin please, Mommy."
"That veryvery, veryvery, veryvery plug is for your very own computer, Mommy?"
"I veryvery, veryvery watch some Team Umizoomi after mine very own lunch."
"Tomorrow we veryvery, veryvery, go to the very own hardware store!"
Sorry if that's awkward to read, but I'm trying to show how it really sounds. "Very" twice like it's one word, repeated anywhere from two to six times. And "very own" all over the place. I can't even think of where she may have heard the phrase "very own."
Just wondering if anyone else had a similar speech weirdness to share, and whether I should consider working with her to move on or just expect it to disappear on its own.
Thanks for reading!
