(Complete) sentences of 21-mo Matt

Months -maybe 4- after his 1st birthday, my son learned to say iloveyou (Bah-bu). That was his first sentence. He's still using that up to present time. Plus, I'm hearing more and more sentences coming from him. As I've said he is in this wonderful stage of verbal exploration. And as his mother, I couldn't be more glad.

I'm glad because understanding (or what he wants) is becoming more like a piece-of-cake. Thanks God.

[Though that doesn't mean I'm not having any parenting woes.]

But really, now I'm glad I'm clearly hearing him say the sentences [more for his wants/needs]. The finger-pointing to get across what he wants is slowly being replace with sentences. Cool. This means lesser fussing , lesser frustration, lesser crying (because sometimes one cannot easily comprehend his needs/wants] , and quicker response time.

Having one frustrated baby, by the way, can be nerve-jagging and can easily make an adult frustrated too. And that is exactly the reason why I've been trying to move heaven and earth coaching Matt the words to communicate his needs/wants.

Thanks also to my mother, who's doing a great job coaching him during her "sitting" time with dear Matt.

So I'm noting the sentences he usually utters these days. And I'm writing it just the way he enunciates them.

Ah(I) want to dwink (drink) juice. Ah want to get the juice. Dwinking.

Ah want the camwa (camera). Ah want to howd (hold) the camwa.
Get the camwa.
Gimme the camwa... pweease (please).

Ah want ... [mimi na (milk), juice, wice (rice), fish, banana, the car].
Gimme the...[mimi na (milk), juice, wice (rice), fish, banana, car]
Ah want to hold the... [pen, payong (umbrella), fon (phone) the car].
Ah want to eat.

Ah want to [wid (read), draw, drive the car]

Ah want the pillow. Howd the pillow. Pillow.

Big Bid (bird). Theh (there) you go. Wowowee.
