Funny Talk

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Aulia' will be 19 m/o next month and she's very chatty! Its been so entertaining to watch her learn languages and the funny talks she's made along the way.

Last night we were playing with her Babydoll and she was saying "Bebe, dodo! dodo! dodo! mamam.??emmm daaaaap!" and it continues with another babbling which I don't really understand.

I was puzzled for a moment before I realized she was telling me her "baby' wants milk and the cookies she was eating earlier.  I gave her the right words and we continued on. Then Hubby join in and this time she told my husband that she was "getting a little busy with her baby", once I explained what she meant, he told her that she was actually want to get the milk fed to her babydoll.





Aulia' ran and get her milk bottle and fed to her Babydoll..  and she starts humming and singing her own songs. omg! She learn the languages so effortlessly that the mistakes are here today and gone tomorrow, it really amazing to watch as her little brains learn. I'm sure all babies develop at their own rate, but we still expect her to achieve milestones at a certain time. So when Aulia' starts to babble, we slowly teach her how to pronounce each words correctly. She'll probably not understand them all and she's likely to mispronounce and mix up what she says (often adorably so). We skipped the baby talk and instead, expand on what she says to help her build the words.

To support her language learning, we just  talk, talk and talk some more! We describe what we're seeing and doing. We took her to places (the stores, parks, library etc) where she can see new things- and hear new words. We singing songs and read books.. My mom said that we have to respond warmly ad enthusiastically to Aulia's attempst to communicate- she'll be thrilled when she gets her point across!
