Celeste is surrounded by chatter all day long in a very large and noisy household. She is exposed to so much that my earlier children were not when they were at this same age.
My baby girl is certainly very socialised because of it.
There will of course be a downside to that too. She will grow up a lot faster. It's difficult to keep her experiences within in her age range when school-aged children are bouncing about around her. I do try my hardest to keep her surrounds at her level to preserve her beautiful baby qualities.
Such a special time. Where did it go?
I adore hearing her little girly voice speak the words and phrases she has developed so far with meaning. Some of them I especially like to hear which make me giggle:
"Tankoo" (Yes and thank you.)
"I want Boobay!" (Booby!)
"What you doing?" Her official sentence first spoken a few months back and repeated often while following myself or a sibling about the house.
"Yor noying!" She like this one a lot. It translates to 'You're annoying!' This one has come directly from the mouths of the older kids who often say it to one another and boy, does she know what it means!
My favourite "Huggie!" This one is usually shouted and involves lots of urgent running towards me for the cutest little embrace.
Long live the passionate toddler embrace!
...Oh, and she can Beat Box too thanks to the influence of her older Brothers!
