22 months old ... oh, my word!

Yesterday I looked through my kitchen notebooks and made official lists of what the Fab Four are saying (and signing) these days. I was already aware that the girls are talking more than the boys, but I was blown away when I looked at the finished lists and realized just how much everyone around here is actually saying!

Because I know that counting all of their words will soon be impossible, I decided to compose a snapshot in time of each kid's vocabulary at this age. Here they are, in order of verbosity:

I can't wait until these kids know enough words to carry on a conversation with me—and each other!

It's awesome that you are raising your kids with English and Spanish, but I feel a little bad looking at a list of words a child under 2 says and not knowing some of them!;-) It sounds like their speech is coming along really well!

It is so much fun being able to talk with them more and more!!

That is awesome, you are so good at documenting their milestones! We are starting with the signing, so far just learning 'all done', which they all know now, and working on 'milk'
