Toddler Talk.....

According to most I've read, it seems that by age 3, 50% of your toddler's speech should be understandable to strangers.  I am sure that even parents who have kids with advanced vocabularies are still a little skewed when asked to make this judgement.  In our case, Gage seems to have quite an advanced vocabulary for his age and we get comments often about how much/well he speaks; however, I have realized recently that I probably understand WAY more of what he says then most others.  Not that that's not often the case, but in 'mommy' ears, 90% of what he says I understand.  Gage has actually begun stuttering lately and it's mostly when he strings 6 or more words together which makes sense.  I think his little brain is just thinking so hard of how to put the words together and his mouth is already running.  It has become a little more severe, but I do think it's natural.  In any case, I want to play a litte game.  Luke got about a 10 word sentence (no stuttering) on video the other night.  So let's see if you guys can tell what my little man is talking about!  Comment on your guesses!

I couldn't get the video to work on my comp, otherwise I would have tried to see what he was saying. In other news, yeah.... I haven't admitted defeat yet with the running. I really do want to keep up with it, but I just can't seem to push myself to actually do it. It's cooler now, but I'm just so exhausted by the time I get home that the LAST thing I want to do is run. Mornings always worked better for me, but it's either too dark or too late for me to run in the morning. Someday, right? Someday we will finish this 9-week program, right? LOL!!!

LOL I got "Giraffe, I made giraffe stand...." and then couldn't get the rest. But reading the other comments (cheating? LOL) "stand on the blue thing please" sounds possible!

I was surprised when we were at the pediatrician last week and she couldn't understand a word he said when it was clear as day to me. Guess I really am a mom now since I'm fluent in a secret toddler language!
