I looked it up on Babycenter.com, and according to that website, as long as she has 10 words she is fine.. So I started keeping up with all the words she can say..
The words she can say perfectly clear are:
- Mommy or mama
- Bye or bye bye
- Uh oh
- On no
- (There may be more, but this is all I have thought of so far)
- "Buh" - book
- "Cuhyer" - Color
- "Un" - one
- "Bah" - Bath
- "Ba-ba" - cup (I cannot get her to say cup for the life of me)
- "Beet-beet" - blanket or bear (she uses it for both)
One of the things that really concerns me is that is seems like she has lost some words..
She used to say "I love you" now it's just "I you." It's like she lost the word "love." Also, she used to say "thank you" but she will not say it anymore. And she used to say "Barney" but she doesn't say that anymore either.. And she likes me to sing the A B C's with her, but she no longer says "a b c." I think there are other words she has lost too, but I can't think of them right now..
And since she lost "love" and "thank you" she lost her only sentences.. the closest thing she has to sentence is "I you."
We asked her doctor, and she didn't seem too concerned. She said as long as she is still vocalizing then she is fine. But I still can't help, but wonder. I don't think there is anything wrong with her.. I'm just wondering if maybe her speech is delayed. Do you guys think I am over-reacting or do you think I should push the subject with her doctor?
Other than this she is doing wonderful. She is rear-facing again.. we started today, so I'm not really sure how she likes it, but she didn't really seem to mind. I plan on keeping her that way at least until her second birthday. And she can count to two now. As I said earlier, "un" = one, but she is still counting. She will put two things in front of herself, then point to one and say "un" then point to the other and say "two" then she looks at me and we clap lol.
She has lots of hair now, but she is sporting a mullet lol. I refuse to cut it yet though.
I can't believe she is going to be two in just a little over four months!!
