Now, the kids can better express themselves. As a result, there is less and less of Angelique and I guessing or agreeing with them even though we have no clue what they are talking about. The girls are putting together sentences that make a lot of sense, and Christopher is repeating his favorite words ad nauseum to perfect his craft.
Lots of asking for milk, yogurt and pickles from everyone. Oh yeah, and a bite of whatever we are eating. Lots of shock on our faces as they blurt out a new word they hear on one of their learning shows or describe stuff now with a leading noun – pink diaper (Michaela’s training pants), for example. Yesterday Emma’s arms flew up at her trademark 45 degree angle, and she shocked me when she said “Hold me…” 😮. Working on manners. Emma and Michaela can say Please, and Emma always drags out the word and says “Pleeeeeeeease????”. She hasn’t got the T down with her Thank You, so it comes out as “Hank You”.
Emma has a remarkable ability to repeat a word, and some of them are complex. She has no idea yet what she said, but it’s impressive and she’s been doing that for a while.
The word “No”? Mastered by all 🙊
Emma tends to ask for the things she wants. Love it when she asks for water, by the way. Michaela’s new found leap in vocabulary has revealed she’s well aware of her inner boss. The other day she was on the potty 🚽 and I was sitting their and had spaced out while I waited. It was dark in the bathroom, and when I tuned in to what she was repeating I realized she was telling me to “Turn on the light!”. The next day she was telling me to “Close the door!” (for privacy, which she tries to also say).
Yep, age 3 is going to be a real tr3at, times 3 😊
