Something exciting has happened in the last week. Toby’s speech has been coming on quickly of late, and he seems to be learning new words every day, but last week he actually started saying mummy!
He’s been saying Daddy for months and months, I think it was one of the first things I heard him say, and although we’ve had a few mamas they’ve only really come when he’s been crying and could quite easily just been a sound he happened to make rather than actually saying my name.
But last week we started getting a definite mummy. He still doesn’t always get it right and calls me daddy, or now is calling his daddy mummy but he always corrects himself if we point it out. On the downside it also means that he has started crying ‘mummy’ when he’s upset, which is difficult, particularly for Barry when he’s trying to comfort him. But there’s nothing more adorable than the big grin and ‘mummy!’ I get when I pick him up from nursery.
His other favourite words at the moment are ‘oh, wow!’, ‘nee naw’, and of course we still get a lot of ‘hats’ and ‘shoe shoe’. Apparently he has started saying lots of the names at nursery as well this week so I can’t wait to see what we get next.
After a very long break I’m linking up with Mummy Daddy Me for The Ordinary Moments again.
