From the moment you discovered that sounds can come out of your mouth, you’ve never stopped squealing, giggling, singing, reading, and talking out loud. We’ve made it a point early in your toddler years to always talk to you in regular words and sentences – not baby talk – to teach you how to talk. And you know what? You’re so good at it now! Actually, sometimes, you’re too good. You won’t quiet down.
You seem to have something to say about everything. Even for activities that most people do quietly, you talk out loud. You prefer to read out loud. When you’re playing with your dollhouse, you have a voice for every doll and conversations with yourself. When you play with Berry Bites, you’re loud and excitable. And even when we’re not talking to you directly, you like to butt in and give your opinions or ask what’s going on. Never a quiet moment.
And don’t think that just because you’re sleeping, you’re quiet. You talk in your sleep too!
You are my Ms. Talkative. I am thankful to God for giving you a talent for words. When I see a mute person on tv or other kids your age who talk like a baby, I am very thankful you can talk, no matter how much. Maybe someday you’ll learn how to be concise and choose your words wisely. But for now, you are a child. And everything in the world excites you. And you just can’t contain it all.
