Daniel: still talks a lot ... some phrases?
Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 23 March 2007 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.
So while I've been breastfeeding & napping, Daniel has progressed from words to mini broken phrases. I don't think he fully understands what he's saying, but he's able to string words together in a fairly comprehensible manner.
Example, when he sees or hears a fire truck, he'll say "Fire truck! Help people! Vooosh! Gone!"
(Interpretation: Look, there's a fire truck. It helps people by spraying water. Voosh! Look it's gone!)
Example 2: "Light! Drop! Boom! Broken! Pain pain!"
(Interpretation: There was this light. And I dropped it on the floor. Boom! And the bulb was broken and the glass on the floor was dangerous and mommy asked me not to step on it otherwise it'll be painful."
Example 3: "Alex! Pour sand! Alex! Play!Outside!"
(Interpretation: Just now, I played with Alex outside and he poured sand on my head.)
Example 4: "Heavy! Dirty! Throw! Heavy! Throw!"
(Interpretation: This is heavy and dirty and must be thrown away.)
This is because we always show him his diaper which is heavy & dirty and tell him we need to throw it away. He's mistakenly transferred this concept to everything that looks dirty or feels heavy.
