Take the baby this morning. After dressing her ready for the school run I was brushing her hair when she turned to me and said;
"Baby Bootibul" (she talks about herself in the 3rd person which is really cute!)
Just by changing the F to a B the word changed and became so cute! If she had been older I would've been concerned about her speech and trying to teach her the correct word, but I know not to make a fuss, especially as she is only 25mths old. Besides, a habit I learnt with DD1 who requires speech therapy is I always repeat what the say back to them. Not only does it show them the correct way of saying a word without making them feel small and a failure because they didn't do it right in the first place, it also shows that you understood what they said.
I still remember summer 2010 we took the kids to watch Toy Story 3 in the cinema and a few days later I caught DD1 jumping off my bed shouting
"To infrizabee and beyond!"
It was so cute that she had gotten it slightly wrong that I didn't even tell her off for jumping off my bed!!!
