Toddler Talk

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

I asked if he would like to take his shoes off..
T: Yeah shure.

After finishing reading a book by himself..
T: The end. Ohkay. What's next?
After getting dressed..
T: Ohkay, I'had go play.

In the sweetest, melt-your-heart little voice..
T: Sawwee (sorry) guys.

Driving by Sonic on our way home after dinner with cousins..
T: We get ice-scream now?
(Yea!! For a memorable experience when we walked there for a treat this summer..) :)

My all time, reoccurring favorite thing to come out of his mouth.. 
Asking as he walks into a room or when he sees you doing something/anything.. 
T: Wh'ya doin herre?

For the sake of my 'record keeping', he's is doing great with (and seems to really love) counting/numbers. He can now count to 20, usually skipping 13-14; and can recognize and name numbers 1-10.
We've also been practicing letters - recognition, what sound they make, and a word that starts with that letter. He now sings his ABC's (or will say something that sounds like it at parts) and when asked, can pick out at least five letters from the letter magnets on the fridge. He's also done a great job with recalling letters and corresponding word (that start with that letter). It's so fun to watch him learn and catch on to these things!! We try to make it a fun thing and of course celebrate any little achievement or even attempt when practicing/playing.


  1. GO Tyson!!!! Way to go with the counting and singing ABCs! That's awesome!
    And so inquisitive! Whatcha doin'? So sweet!

    1. It always makes me pause and think, 'do I say that (I better watch what I say)..?!' Not sure where he comes up with some of the things!! :)

  2. Awesome! I love these. Toddlers are so funny! Mac asks us what we're doing ALL THE TIME. It's hilarious.

    1. Right?! I'm still finding the questions cute and funny, although I'm sure there will come a time where they just DON'T STOP. :) I try to put the question back on him though (then it's always fun to see what he comes up with..).
