From the mouths of babes #19

Listening to my little girls chatter away amongst themselves is one of my favourite things – I love the glimpses into their imaginations, hearing those adorable little toddlerisms when they mispronounce various words and the way they love to sing to themselves.


From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the times they repeat something they perhaps shouldn’t or say exactly what they think, learning a new word for the first time – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!


A big thank you to last week’s lovely linkers. I loved reading Becoming a Stay at Home Mum’s update on Monkey at 35 months – him saying “I really nove you” and “I’m so troud of you!” was just heart-melting. Odd Socks and Lollipops shared who Boo was voting for – food and comfort were high on Boo’s priority lists with “Baba” (boobs) getting her vote!

I’ve posted before about how teaching my girls good manners is very important to me. Sophie has been saying “dank-oo” for quite some time now but “peese” has been added to the repertoire on a regular basis this week. It is quite adorable to see her look at something and point to it, asking for it first and then adding “peese?” so sweetly.


“Abuh. Peese?” (A book, please)

“Wan’ booby. Peese? Peese, Mummy. Wan’ booby.” (I want milk please Mummy)


I also love hearing Sophie calling for her big sister to come and play – hearing that little voice calling “Jess-sha! Jess-sha!” melts my heart every time I hear it, especially as it is often followed by Jessica giving her baby sister a big cuddle and announcing “I love my Sophie!”
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 (old and new posts are welcome!). 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.

Looking forward to hearing what your little ones have been saying.


Little Hearts, Big Love

  1. Awe peeese and dank-oo so cute!! Gorgeous pic too, I see Sophie is taking after mammy developing those musical talents! x

  2. A www she’s too sweet! Peese is a great new word to add to her daily vocabulary, and the fact she keeps asking Jessica to come and play really shows how close the girls are. She looks so cute with her hair done!!

    1. Thanks Mel – I love hearing her saying “peese” and “Jess-sha” and being able to put her hair in bunches is lovely 🙂

  3. What gorgeous little girls you have – so polite and they love each other so much! Sibling love really is one of the most adorable things to watch as a parent isn’t it? xx

    1. I love it when they mispronounce things – it is often either very funny or absolutely adorable 🙂

  4. I was referred to this linkup from #bigfatlinky
    SO glad I found it!! Kids say some of the craziest funniest and even sweetest things!
