Mommy & Daddy's Dictionary (Yanna version)

Yanna is now very talkative. I think I had a lot to do with it plus the fact that she loves it when we read to her! One of the advantages of staying home is that I get to teach her new things. It amazes me how many words she already knows and how she tries to say them.  This stage can be very frustrating for a toddler because she's now trying to communicate but since we still cannot understand, she gets frustrated. Well, it's hard to decode what she says sometimes so I'm listing them down for our reference. These are the words she tries to say at 13 months:

Buh - book or ball
Bah - bear or balloon
Anana - banana
Puh - pasyal (she says this while pointing at the door)
Teteh - water
Puh - apple
Dede - milk
Tee - kitty
Am - I want to eat (she says this while sticking her finger in her mouth)
Da da - dog or duck
Ba ba - bye bye
M-muh - Elmo

17 words! Yay! Although she says these words unclearly, I'm so proud that her vocabulary is growing this early. I'm definitely going to brace myself for the coming months and when the time comes that she will be asking me a lot of questions! I hope to be patient enough. LOL!

So Mommies and Daddies, always talk to your children and start them early on books. We started reading to Yanna when she was just 3 months old and I believe it played a big part on her wide vocabulary.

With that, I leave you with photos of our little bookworm :)

  1. Yehey for Yanna! I agree, books really help a lot. Some doctors have said that Ziggy's super talkative too for his age, considering he's a boy and boys are supposed to be late talkers compared to girls. I think it's because we read and talk to him a lot too so I guess he can't help but talk back. Haha!


I love it when you share your thoughts with me! Thanks for dropping by! :)
