Just a brief rundown on Aria’s vocabulary thus far (for those interested).
Note: Though Aria is saying and understands all of the following words, pronunciation is still in development and understanding may be limited to mom and dad in some cases. She still often leaves the end/beginning off her words…Just this week “all duh” became “all done.”
I Don’t Know
Banana (or na-na!!! in a throaty-growly voice)
Water (or wa-wa)
O (as in the cereal)
Elmo (her favorite!)
…oh, and of course…NO!
Change (as in diaper)
Our girl also makes various animal noises, such as roaring like a lion and mooing like a cow, and can point to and identify lots of body parts (eye, ear, nose, mouth, belly button, toes, feet). Most of all, though, she loves to sing and dance, stopping whatever she is doing when a favorite song (she does have discriminating taste, even at 15 months, and seems to prefer songs with distinctive notes and rhythms) comes on to bounce and move and sing along.
