Nate just turned 16 months. He is communicating more clearly every day. It is astonishing to me, given that Harry didn't talk much until after he turned 2 (and had intensive speech therapy. Not to compare but, here's a comparison).
Nathan can say...
Ba: cup or dog (ie bark)
Ber: Bert from Sesame Street
Mo-mo: mu-mu cat or lawnmower
Mimi: Mommy. His preferred name for me, even though he can say Mama.
Juice: sounds like dooce
More (with sign, sometimes)
Na-Na: his name for himself. Also how he asks (ahem, DEMANDS) something. Also means nursies.
Door: for door and also means "George" for Curious George.
Pah: pop, like bubbles
Whoa: Usually "whoa, whoa, whoa!" like when I catch him climbing something.
Beep: for nose
I know there are ones I'm forgetting. That is how fast he's adding vocabulary. His enunciation is still very babyish, of course, but in context it is very clear what he is saying. The other day, he was trying to tell me he wanted something to eat. On the table, there were Gerber, mixed berry yogurt bites. I offered them. He shook his head no. I offered other things, crackers, etc. All no. He took the Gerber package and pointed to the strawberry and said "more" while signing. I took him to the freezer and got out frozen berries. I said "more berries"? He said "berry" and happily sat down to eat frozen raspberries. When he ran out, he pointed to the picture again (blueberries, this time) and said "more" again and "berry" again. I got him some blueberries. More happy eating.
In Nathan's own words, "Whoa, whoa, whoa!"
