Oliver is 20 months old now and his brain is like a sponge taking in new things all day long, listening to new words and showing an interest in what is going on around him.
His vocabulary is ever growing and he is saying new words every day, constantly repeating what he has heard, sometimes he babbles on and i don’t understand a word that he is saying and then all of a sudden mid sentence out will pop a word pronounced clearly that i can recognise what it is he is saying.
He understands a lot more than he can say and sometimes i can read his expressions on his face to know what he wants to say. He has the most funniest facial expressions which reflect his mood without being verbal.
I am always talking to him, discussing what we are going to do that day or what we have done, reading books together and singing nursery rhymes, by doing this it should increase his speech and help to fit together sounds to make the words.
His new word that he loves to say all the time is NO! He answers with this word to many questions….
Do you love Mummy? NO
Do you want some juice? NO (then he snatches the cup from me)
The boys asked me to video them today singing ‘Living on a prayer’ by Jon Bon Jovi.
Jak has been practicing the song for a. Competition he has entered this weekend, he tried his best to concentrate in the video but Joseph was just being his usual silly self and having fun. It was nice to see Jak having fun with the song rather than being serious about it, he has practiced so much lately that I’m sure by Saturday night he will probably have lost his voice.
At one point in the video Joseph decides to stick his bottom in the air, this seems to be a normal thing for him to do lately every time I video him he always does it lol. (See if you can spot him doing it in the video)
What I also like about the video is that it shows off their really close relationship, how much they love each other and their lovely bright personalities. They both hold hands during singing the song and when I noticed them doing it I couldn’t stop smiling. They make me so happy and brighten every day for me.
Watch their video below, don’t be shy and leave a comment below.
