Gelato’s First Sentences!

Well, he’s hit another language explosion time, or so it seems! Gelato spoke in two full sentences today, along with the thousands of one-or-two-word phrases he usually uses.

I had him outside on the swing. He looked at me and said, clear as day, “All done swinging.” I asked him if he wanted to get down and he said, “Yes.”

Then later this afternoon, he and Hula Girl were bonking each other around in the kitchen cabinets (a very frequent pastime, unfortunately), and he got offended by something. He came crying to me and said, “Hold you? Up!” I thought it was so sweet that he said, “Hold you,” because that’s what I say to him when I pick him up- “Do you want me to hold you?” Aw. What a listener.

I have really been able to understand exactly what he wants and needs all day for the past few days. His communication is getting insanely clear. And his enunciation is so very well developed. And his little voice is just so sweet. I wish he could sound like he does forever. Well, until he gets married or something. 🙂

    Wow…what a blessing. Elliot is 28 months old and still does not speak that well. He has a few two word phrases, but they (and most of his single words) only contain vowel sounds. In a way it is very versatile – he says eee eee and by context I know he means eat treat, but the next day he can say the same thing and mean green tree or three bees. Our lack of true communications is an ongoing frustration for us both.

      Yes, Wendy, it’s a huge blessing to be able to understand both of my kids so well!

      Do you have any tricks up your sleeve to help E communicate better? Does he point to pictures? Honestly, you must work so very hard just to communicate, on top of all the joy that comes with 2.5. 🙂 Props to you, Mama!
