It was only a matter of time…My 16 month old, Nathan, has taken his time hitting a number of milestones, partly because we have let him. Well, since November I guess, my wife and I have pretty much been insisting that he start to try and talk to us — either using hand signs or through chatter. Well, its worked…he’s learning new words and phrases almost every day and at this point, just won’t be quiet. Over the past month, he’s learned, please, more, all done, its a truck, its a car, dog, ruff, cat, meow, cup, up, special (for his special blanket), etc.
I think we’ve created a little, chatty monster. 🙂
