From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post about something your children have said. Perhaps they have just started babbling for the first time, or said their first definite word. It could be something cute, or funny, or incredibly embarrassing – whatever it is, I’d love to hear all about it.
Thank you so much to everyone who linked up last week – there were lots of great posts sharing some wonderful moments. I particularly loved Mummascribbles little boy asking for a ‘dead man’ which sounded somewhat sinister until the translation ‘gingerbread man’ was made! There were a couple of wonderful Frozen sing-a-longs from Hope from a Butterfly and Northumberland Mam and Twinderelmo had an awkward moment when her son asked “why don’t girls have willies” and “what do they have?” leaving her wondering what terminology do other mums of girls use.
Sophie’s vocabulary seems to be coming on leaps and bounds at the moment – she loves singing and will sing ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ and ‘Row, Row Your Boat’ all the way through – of course most of the words are still quite unclear but you can tell from the general sound and rhythm that she is singing the whole thing. She has also impressed us quite a lot with her ability to count – we give her the odd numbers and she fills in with the even ones all the way up to ten which I think is pretty good for a 14 month old!
Jessica made me laugh with her comment on waving this week – “Mummy, I am saying ‘hello’ with my fingers” – yes, Jessica, that is a very good description!
If you’d like to share your posts about something your children have said (or sung!), then please add the badge code below and link up with me. The linky opens each Monday from 6am and closes on Friday at 11pm so there is plenty of time to link up your posts. I will also try and share posts via Twitter – please use the hashtag #ftmob and I’ll do my best to retweet them. I also have a Pinterest board and will be sharing posts here too.
Look forward to reading your posts!
