Narrate everything! Say the words for the things you use or see or touch. My youngest is 9 months and is especially starting to LOVE that I do this. It will become a habit, though. Like I have to stop myself from doing it when I'm without my kids and with adults 😂
Absolutely everything, I complain about her dad to her, I complain about her brother, the dog, the foxes, I tell her how pretty she is and how she can't have a boyfriend/girlfriend till she's over 30 and I've been dead 10 years. I tell her about all the things I want to do with her when she's older but she isn't allowed to get older or bigger because I want her to be my little baby forever.
On my darkest days she's my councillor I tell her all the things that are making me sad and want to cry and she just smiles at me and makes me cry more. You can talk to your baby about anything and everything, I started with the weather (very British I know) and it escalated from there
I used to talk for mine sometimes.
Like I would say “your a silly girl”
And then with a baby voice be like I’m not a silly girl mama 😂
I talked to my little one about EVERYTHING and I still do.
Everything! Seriously! Washing dishes? “I’m washing the green cup. Let’s put it in the drainer now.” Laundry? “I’m taking the clothes from the washer to the dryer.” Out on a walk? “Look at the trees! The sun is so bright today! Do you see the birds?” Talking to your babies will build their vocabulary so much!
