Blake is definitely the talker of the family.
His words are flying out now and some of the things he has started to say i'm not too happy about. Of course his big brother prides himself on the fact that he taught his little brother how to say "poo" "wee wee" "doodle" "bum" I'm not sure if it's a boy thing or not, maybe an age thing. But Cooper is obsessed at the moment with bums and poo and all things gross. Everyone is a poo head or a bum bum face.
Cooper has been going to Speech Therapy for about 6 months now because he was a late talker and still has a few issues with his sentence structure and joining words. He loves his speech therapist Zoe. I'm not sure if it's because of her kind nature and the way she is with him or if it's the fact that he gets a balloon or a sticker at the end of a lesson. He really loves going every second Friday and looks forward to his sessions with anticipation. He has improved out of sight since we've been going.
Blake is talking a lot more than Cooper was at the same age. I started writing down all of his words in his memory book when he first starting chatting but now there isn't enough lines in the book. His first word was of course Mumma just like his big brother Cooper. Then came Dadda, Nanna, Pappa, Pa, Ta and Uh Oh.
Now he has started stringing together 2 and 3 word sentences. His latest few words are "Bubble" "Buzz Lightyear" "Mandarin" "Banana" "Thanks Mumma" "Do it" "Football"
And like the typical boy he has his transport words down pat - "Car" "Truck" "Bike" "Fast" "Light Queen" "Roary Car"
And my Wiggles obsessed boy can even say "Wake Up Jeff" and "Play Ta Murray" (Play Your Guitar with Murray)
