X was 19.5 months’ old when he uttered this statement to my mom. He wanted more gummy sweets.
X was a relatively late talker when compared to Z. While Z had been enamored with Thomas the train and his first words were all related to transportation, X’s first words were namely eat, hot, more, up and no more. Of course, he could address mama, papa, nen nen (for milk, not sure who taught him), po po, ye ye, ah ma and tiah tiah (for kor kor) for the longest time. It seemed to us that his interest laid in food.
For a late talker to strong this statement, we reckoned snacks were his strongest motivation.
