Astrid: First 20 Words

Using chopsticks is an advanced milestone
Our doctor asked if Astrid could say 20 words. Apparently it’s a developmental milestone for 18-month olds. She hit that mark when she learned ‘purple‘ the other day. Here are her first 20 words, roughly in order.

  1. Mama
  2. No
  3. Yeah
  4. Dada
  5. Hi
  6. Uh-oh
  7. More
  8. Please
  9. Bye
  10. Up
  11. Down
  12. (Ba)nana
  13. Apple
  14. Toes
  15. Shoes
  16. Baba
  17. Night
  18. Row
  19. Mine
  20. Purple

She also knows how to sign “Thank You” (but can’t quite pronounce it) and points at her mouth when she’s hungry. In the past few weeks she’s been more interested in repeating words we say to her, which is how she learned ‘purple’, when Baba was reading to her.
