No, I couldn't say that to my 21 month old, so I'm going to vent it here. That boy is on my very last nerve! If he doesn't start talking soon one of us is going to have a nervous breakdown! I can't take anymore whining, which is is main form of commmunication now.
Oh sure, he says a few words. On top of his list is "no", which is always used in a loud, firm voice, often accompanied with a pointing finger for emphasis. Charming, Son, very charming.
He also says Mama, which isn't said so much as it is chanted over and over and over and over.... That's my name, don't wear it out.
He says Ella, which is always yelled. This will never change, as I'm sure at 15 he will still be searching for his sister from the other side of the house. ELLLLLLAAAA!!! It's a good thing I like her name.
That's about it really. He said light once, several months ago, but doesn't have any use for it. I swear I heard him say banana. (nana). Most of the time it's pointing and whining.
My son can't talk and my daughter is still on a poop strike. Someone should revoke my mommy licence. I am failing.
