Baby’s Communication Stocks Soaring

Posted on Updated on

I'm speechless!

Maddie can’t speak yet, but she is announcing her presence with authority. A weekend surrounded by family really has her communication skills soaring. It may not be English, but her screeches, groans, gurgles and infectious giggles tell us that Maddie has a great deal to say. 

She is becoming more and more opinionated with each passing day and her progression is both impressive and adorable at the same time. Some studies note that more than 90 percent of communication effectiveness is determined by nonverbal cues. If that’s the case, Maddie is coming through loud and clear.

Her keen powers of observation coupled with her sense of humor indicate that she is more than ready to start speaking. She is always lighting people up with that perpetual smile. Maddie has already mastered the high-octane scream coupled with her prolific raspberry splatter patterns. But what’s most interesting is that little words seem to be popping up in her babble.

Maddie has always been fascinated by speech and always watches intently as we speak. She often works her mouth as if she is trying to tell us something. Little words like “hi” and “night, night” seem to be creeping into her verbal landscape a bit more each day.

I’m not sure when Maddie will actually begin to speak, but she doesn’t seem terribly interested in waiting much longer.

    I love reading stories about your daughter, some of the things she does remind me so much of mine! They are about a month apart and I love seeing the things they are doing the same and different- and because of Maddie’s diverse food options we have expanded Sydney’s and she is very thankful for that!

      I am so glad that Maddie could help! She’s is now tackling lasagne and is eagerly waiting for Sydney to join her. Sisters for exotic pasta dishes!
