I love it when kids don't know what something is called and, rather than ask me, make up a word themselves to describe what they mean. With Elisabeth we never really had this pleasure, she talked very early and never really said anything wrong. Jacob however, is the absolute master at this. He has always … Continue reading Mummy, I’ve got a sore yawn
"Fishin!" is what Jacob shouts when he is finished with his snack, dinner, or whatever else he happens to be doing. This is an improvement to what he did before, which was throwing his hands up in the air and shout: "Silly!" He is the complete opposite to his sister when it comes to talking. … Continue reading Kiddos talk
Jacob has finally decided to have a real go at this talking thing that we all seem to be doing. After months of just saying "ball", "wow" and "mama" (which meant fruit, not me!) he is expanding his vocabulary. After a 10 minute session last Friday where we discussed: "this is a banana" and "this … Continue reading Whasaaaaaaaaat?????
Even though my two lovely kiddos look very much alike, they couldn't behave more differently if they tried. The most noticable difference at the moment is talking. Elisabeth never really did baby talk, she was almost silent until she could discuss the political situation in Africa (so to speak). She talked so well that when … Continue reading Where’s mamma?
Me: Morning Jacob. Jacob: Wow! Me: Would you like a drink? Jacob: Wow! Me: Look Jacob, a dog. Jacob: Wow! Me: What would you like for lunch? Jacob: Wow! Me: Night night Jacob. Jacob: Wow! The boy is a genius 😂
Elisabeth: "Where are my nipples mummy?" Me:"Excuse me?" Elisabeth:"Where are my nipples mummy?" If I find out who is to blame for this they will be in serious trouble 🙂 This Tuesday Elisabeth didn't really want to go to the child minder, she was tired and wanted to stay home with mummy or daddy. But … Continue reading Conversations with Elisabeth 3
Me: 'What did you have for dinner at Jenny's today?' Elisabeth: 'Mash and beans and fish fingers.' - Me: 'Really?' - She actually had spaghetti 🙂 Me: 'You've grown so big!' Elisabeth: 'I'm not big, daddy is big.' Elisabeth: 'Daddy is a boy and mummy is a lady.' Me: 'That's right, daddy is a man … Continue reading Conversations with Elisabeth 2
Me: Mummy loves you Elisabeth. Elisabeth: What's that mummy? Me: That's a car. Do you love your mummy? Elisabeth: me love my daddy. ********* Me: Good morning Elisabeth. Elisabeth: Mummy! Me: Hello sweetheart. Elisabeth: Mummy wear pretty dress. ********* Me: Let's get you nice and dry. Elisabeth: Me need wash my hands. Me: That's ok, … Continue reading Conversations with Elisabeth (at 23 months and 2 weeks)
It has started. A bit earlier than I was expecting. I thought I wouldn't be doing this until Elisabeth was at least two and a half.........apparently not. It started today........ I'm talking about the questions that just keep coming. Elisabeth spent pretty much all day pointing at objects asking: "What's this mummy?" even though she … Continue reading What’s this mummy?
