Wordless Wednesday - Toddler See, Toddler Do...

 
As I watch my sixth little one grow, it strikes me time and time again how very different this one's childhood is to the babies I have raised before her.

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.

 
I thought I'd keepsake some of her early words and phrases here, for these are the last precious weeks of my baby being a one year old.

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:

"Yesh!"
"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!
 
Can you remember your baby's first cherished words and phrases?

  1. Having a few siblings she must here the Your annoying a little bit. They try so hard not to be. I wish I had of thought to record more of their chatter when they were small.

    1. Yes, the 'you're annoying' thing is probably spoken around here more than I'd like. Thankfully blogging is the perfect way to record the present.

  2. I don't think that I can really remember their first sentences but I have recorded their first words in a journal which I keep for each one of them

  3. Oh how gorgeous! I often reflect too, on how my parenting has changed over the years and how each child has a different childhood due to these changes and many more. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing. It is just is. We do have conversations with our eldest though about how he is the first child we've ever parented and how we are learning and aiming to do our best. He finds the fact that we've never done this before so confusing poor love.

    1. You of all people will know what I am on about here Sarah. Some days I long for the years when I had the first two kids and I could remember everything I did so well. Mind you, I probably had a little too much time on my hands which is why I opted for 6 instead! I always tell my oldest Daughter the same - she is my experiment in parenting and the others just follow along behind her. x

  4. My son's first complete phrase was "Da wishes in da water!" pointing excitedly at a picture on the wall (of fish in the water) that I'd received for my birthday; he would have been about 20 months old. Cute!

    1. Ooops should have been "wishies" not "wishes"

    2. For a moment there I thought you had managed to get your toddler to do the dishes! Lovely that you can remember this. The funniest toddler phrase I have heard from my kids to date came from my third Son whose very first sentence was "I don't like girl TV!" We are still laughing about this one today!
