My daughter is 19 months and I can't believe how verbal she is. I KNOW my son was not this verbal at this age, nowhere close. An example of things she says - yesterday they were playing in our kiddie pool. My sister was watching them and I went to get a lawn chair. When I walked back over Olivia looked at me and said "The water's cold Mommy, fix it!" Or the same pool time Elijah was pouring water from a bucket and saying "it's a waterfall!" My neice took the bucket and was pouring water out and Olivia said "Tata (Natania) is making a waterfall too!" She said waterfall perfectly. If she's with DH and she wants me she will kiss DH and say, "Bye Daddy, I want Mommy now." She even says Mommy and Daddy, not Mama and Dadda. Maybe I am just being a proud mommy thinking she is advanced but at playgroups and church the other children her age don't seem to be talking as much. My sister has a neice on her husbands side who was born 4 days after Olivia and she is just starting to string together 2 word sentences. So is my daughter advanced for her age?
