Every day it seems like my toddler becomes more loquacious, which is a fancy-schmancy way of saying he dun talk reel gud.
Well, better than the day before, at least.
There are still some struggles. The letter “k” is something he seems to have personally taken a point in working on a lot recently. (Which is good, because when you can’t do the “k” sound very well and you try to tell someone your name is “Tucker,” everyone just ends up thinking that your parents were really big fans of Hervé Villechaize’s Fantasy Island character.)
Anyhow, I’ve been thinking lately of how much I am actually going to miss some of the adorable mispronunciations and general toddler-speak that I am so accustomed to now. Sure, I take great pride in how clearly my little boy can talk and love that it’s increasingly easier to actually have great conversations with him. But dang, toddler-speak can be cute.
A few of my favorites (see if you can figure them all out):
What things does (or did) your toddler say that you are going to (or already) miss?
