That's right. 18 months.
"Did you say DOCTOR'S VISIT?!"
Some say it's more important that they're seeming to understand what you're saying. Some say five to ten words is good. others say five to twenty. Some include animal sounds.
Is he supposed to be imitating animals? I'd better get on that one.
In any case, tomorrow is our well child check up, and last time the pediatrician's office wanted to make sure he had a certain number of words. So, tomorrow I want to go in prepared with a list in case they ask.
3 Dee Dee (formal name for sister)
4 Sissy (for sister or any other young girl)
6 Wawa (cup of water or anything else)
7 Baba (nursing- and no, he hasn't had a bottle)
8 Bye Bye
10 DayDew (thank you)
14 Ah ah (like ah ah ah, you shouldn't be doing that)
17 na-na-na (the N song with the "na-na-na-na..." refrain)
18 ceedee (please sing the alphabet song)
20 gam gam (my mom)
21 gama (spouse's mom)
23 nie-nie (night night)
27 gkagka (cracker)
I think he's good, but man, that's a lot of words. I just had to learn his language to know what they were. ;-)
In other news, he has learned how to open up the CD player and switch disks, though he forgets to hit "play" sometimes, and gets very irritated, reopens, and repositions the CD, thinking he had it in wrong.
What do you do to prep for your kids' check ups?
