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 glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!
A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I loved Pinks Charming’s video of Ava telling her daddy what she was going to be when she grew up – the rainbow-coloured guitar she’s going to play in her band sounds fab! It was also lovely to read some of The Baby’s phrases that Silly Mummy shared – I especially liked “belly beeyupta” for belly button.
Sophie is at a particularly adorable stage with her speech – I love the way she mispronounces things and it is interesting to listen to how her speech is developing as she gets older. Lately I’ve noticed a change in the way she says words that start with a hard “c” or “k” sound – for example “cuddle”. A couple of months ago she would call it a “duddle” but now it’s evolved to become “tuddle” instead. We also have “tar” (car), “tarry me” (carry me) and “tup” (cup).
Since turning two, Sophie has also become more definite in letting us know when she doesn’t want something (ah the joys of the toddler tantrum!) and a phrase that we hear a lot is “don’t loik it!” (don’t like it). It’s funny to hear my Hampshire accent coming out when Sophie says things like this – especially as I don’t think I have one anymore but Sophie copying it makes me realise it’s still there to some extent!
If you have any posts about something that your children have been saying lately, please do come and link up. 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!). Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can also link up (the badge code is below). 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 reading what your little ones have been saying this week.
