Some days I hate opening my email because I know the parenting emails are waiting. You know, the “Your Child is Xmo and Should Be Doing X,Y, and Z” email. These emails are a wonderful resource, but they also freak me out. Is Nate on track? Do I need to worry? Uggg!
Physically, I know he’s ahead of the curve. He walked early. Now he’s unstoppable. His coordination skills are too good (in my opinion).
But yesterday’s email was about communication. Apparently, some early talkers have 20 words at 14mo?!?!?!?!?! We have 5 words. Is this normal? Part of the reason I’m uber aware of this is Nate uses screams as his main source of communication. If he’s ready for another bite of food, he screams. If he can’t get your attention, he screams. And then sometimes he just screams. If you’ve been on the phone with me in the past month, you’ve had the pleasure of hearing this phenomenon.
I know he understands me. I just said “Can I have a kiss?” and he turned his face to me and puckered up. (And melted my heart even more.) I’d say he understands a half a dozen questions.
But when will he talk more???
