In the spirit of posts like this one, Sara and I have been putting together a list of words that Alex knows. We started with a few words, and then we kept coming up with more and more, texting each other additional words for the list, until we realized that Alex knows a lot of words! It seems like he learns a new one every hour or so, so I better publish this quick, otherwise we will never stop adding to it.
I think it is a pretty impressive list of words for a not-even-one-and-a-half year old!
To quote from the post about Oliver:
So I tried to be very conservative in my list, and only include words that he uses often and obviously understands completely. He has a lot of words that he has said just a few times, or that he repeats after you, but has not used independently. So those I didn’t include. He also understands about 100 times more words than this, but I think that’s pretty normal.
Anyway, here is the (partial!) list, in no particular order:
- Eva (Evelyn)
- pizza (sounds pretty much exactly like pasta)
- Guh (cheese)
- Guh (keys)
- Vroom-vroom (car or anything with wheels)
- vata? (flower)
- come on
- Nana (cat)
- Da (dog)
- Kwkwkwkwkw (chicken)
- Ba (bear)
- fish sound (fish)
- rar (for lion or other big cat)
- Bir (d)
- Who-who (owl)
- Tongue clicking (horse)
- Baah (sheep)
- (ba) nana
- Buh (bottle)
- Buh (bib)
- Buh (bug)
- Buh (ball)
- buh (bus)
Maybe tractor too. Maybe puzzle. He also inexplicably still signs a few words, but refuses to actually make the noises: bye-bye, night-night, all done, milk, train.
