Vocabulary at 18 months

Roo chats a lot now!!   I love working out what he’s trying to say and hearing him say new words.  Recently has been a bit of a vocab explosion with at least 1 new word every day.

I try to encourage him to talk by making sure I consciously always use the same word for variations of the same thing.  E.g. a ‘cup’ is always a ‘cup’ and never a glass, mug, beaker, sippy cup or anything else.

These are the words he can say at 18 months.  Specifically, the day he turned 18 months!  I really enjoyed listing all the words he knows, and realising just how large his vocabulary is now.  Of course, some of these aren’t elocuted very clearly and need a bit of mummy translation 😉
