LANGUAGE UNFOLDING


This sweet boy. Only one breath away from turning three and is quite clearly in the midst of a massive vocabulary awakening. 

He’s  always been verbal. But he went from putting three and four words together to putting complete thoughts and sentences together regularly – and often. 

It’s so rad how I can almost see his language unfolding before my very eyes. Sure I’m hearing it unfold but to watch his as he's able to communicate what he wants to say – it's amazing. This look of satisfaction and relief that washes over him, like he's getting what he wants to say out and it feels so good. We’re conversing on a whole new level and I can see how pleased he is with the results. Of course it's just as gratifying for me as it is him.

And don't even get me started on the adorable shape of his sweet little mouth when he's saying his words in his mushy little way. Suffice to say it's delicious. 

This week, we have been pushing bedtime to 9 o’clock sometimes 9 thirty,  just happy as a clam and ready to talk about everything. Anything and everything. It is no doubt the sweetest – albeit slightly exhausting – thing in the world. It’s always a rapid-fire, stream of consciousness discussion that just has to come out. Like he just couldn't keep his thoughts in for one more second so until he got them all out then he was able to rest.

I’m worried that we’ve started a new precedent. I’ll be honest, his curious, breathy little voice describing his every thought in the dark of his bedroom? Some seriously happy moments.
