Hi All =0)
My son Kalvin is 19 months old and his first word at 5 months was "Mmm-Mum!" every morning to feed him his bottle and weet-bix, then at 6 months he started saying Da-dad, and shrugging his fathers shoulders to wake him up every morning as well. Then up until now I noticed that he has a pretty wide vocab and noticed that his babbling was also turning into REAL WORDS! (keeping in mind that the babble is still there but is also fading away pretty quickly). I am very proud, and it takes hard work and determination while teaching your kids no matter what the gender, and in the end it all pays off!
Its sooo cool I even wrote down a whole list for you guys to check it out, I cant help it, but Im just so proud of my son, I want the whole world to know LOL, LOL!
*Da,da,da,daaah... here goes LOL!*
1.Car (Favourite word)
3.Baba (Chinese for Dad)
6.Mama (Chinese for Mum)
11Pawpaw/Popo (Chinese for Grandma - not sure how its spelt)
16.Bak-mo (Thai for Pig-Boy *not sure how its spelt*)
38.Coo-me (Excuse me)
45.No, no, no!
46.Oh Yeah! (Hungry Jacks Commercial)
47.Who dat? (Who’s that?)
53.What-is-it? (Talks really fast when saying this, like Speedy Gonzalez!)
59.Gaw-Gaw (Big Brother in Chinese)
60.JeJe (Big Sister in Chinese *Don’t know how to spell it*)
So that pretty much wraps it up for me...
Good luck to all, and dont give up! its very rewarding in the end, my own son taught me that! =0)
