Her First Intelligible Words At The Age of 13 Months

It delights a mother when she can understand her child and I’m sure a child feels happy when understood.

Words that my child uses to communicate (besides signing)… Penning these down for memory’s sake…

– *sob* ma mee *sob sob* (mummy – cried out only when in distress)
– da dee (daddy – randomly mentioned when not in distress)
– ma ma (maternal grandma or photograph)
– ma! (paternal grandma)
– nana (banana)
– perl (apple)

– bear bear (teddy bear / care bear / any bear)
– tigger (pooh bear’s friend)
– neg neg (magnet)

– zing (raisins)
– mam mam (eat)
– pen dor *point at lock button* (open the child gate and let me out)
