Sam’s vocabulary is increasing reasonably quickly at the moment. As well as speaking words, he’s getting a lot better at understanding them, too. If you ask him to find Grandma/Granddad/Poppa/Nanna from a selection of photos (we have a little photo board with friends & family on it) he can do that; he’s reasonably good at finding Aunty Brenda & ‘Aunty’ Debbie as well, and he knows Mummy & Daddy, of course.
He can say (in no particular order, and I may have forgotten some): Poppa, Nana, Mummy, Daddy, fish (“fishfishfishfish”), swing (“wiing”), turtle, wheel (“wheelwheelwheel”), nose, door, more, elephant (“nananent”), bubble, ball (“ballball”), swimming (“mingming”), baby, bird (“bir”), shoes, teeth, keys (“ees”), cheese, and bye. He knows some other things, but has picked up the wrong word: boat (“row row”), car (“bye bye”), dog (“woah woah”), cat (“ohhh”), elephant (“nose”), duck (“uack uack”) and throw (“catch”).
