Who knew toddlers could be self-conscious?
As most of you know Charlie is 2 now, though what you don’t know is he only says about 20 words and is only just starting to babble. So we took him to a drop in centre to see a Speech Therapist.
Turns out he isn’t talking because he is self-conscious about getting it wrong. We were talking to him in complex sentences because he is intelligent and understands. As a result he was not comfortable talking to us until he could match our speech. So after a couple of days of “bird, black bird. big black bird. Oh loud black bird. It’s a black bird, do you see the black bird” – gets annoying. We are up to thirty words! Yay!
Hopefully it won’t be long now. He is starting to attempt small two-word sentences now. Beyond happy.
Had pizza for dinner. So yum.
Used a turkish style garlic flat bread for the base. Topped with tomatoe and Daiya cheese.
Tonight I am going to attempt to make hamburger helper style noodles with our leftover Daiya!
