Oh the trials and tribulations of being an almost 2 year old. And, an almost 2 year old with little vocab.
We all have them and we have all had them. 21 month olds! Now, granted your 21 month old may be or have been very different from mine. As lovely as he is and believe me he really is. Things have just taken a turn for the harder. You see, he is at a stage where he wants to talk, he needs to talk. But, he can't talk. And, as cruel as this is, it is infuriating for both myself and him. He is desperate and I'm pretty needy to understand him. When I say understand, please don't get me wrong. I can read my little boy like a book and work out most things that he desires. But, now a conversation would be nice. I know he feels the same too.
As hard as we are trying talking progress is slow. I guess that's okay. I mean, I know he is taking everything in. He can point to every part of the body that you ask him to, make the noises of a zoo full of animals amongst counting and many other things. But, he can't quite say them. So, currently there is a bit of barrier.
The barrier, I feel is more a problem for him than it is me. I can see when he runs into the kitchen that he is desperate to tell me something. I try my best to prize it from him. But, to no avail.
Now, folk have told me that he will do it in his own time and it will be as though a tap has been turned on. I look forward to that day. A lot.
Come on Mr Speech. Show yourself now.
So, do you have a little 21 month old with a little communication barrier? If so, talk to me. And, if you have one that is spouting sentences left, right and centre. Talk to me too! I want to hear all of your experiences.
By the way, I have my phone back! BOOM!
