Tonight before bed, Ollie had his first ever phone CONVERSATION! The person lucky enough to be on the other end was his Grandma.
Ollie: Hello Grandma
Grandma: Hello Ollie!
Ollie: How are you (he said this perfectly after prompting from me on what to say, he never ever said this before!)
Grandma: I'm fine Ollie, how are you?!
Ollie: Okay (after more prompting)
Grandma: Are you being a good boy?
Ollie: Yes (more prompting... he has never said yes before... I have to look at him when I ask a question because he only nods!)
Ollie: Love you Grandma (came out as "luffu aama")
Grandma: (sounding super happy) I love you too Ollie
Ollie: Night night Grandma bye bye (he says night night in a whisper every single time!)
I think my mum's heart melted just like mine did a few days ago when he said "love you" for the first time to me.
His speech is coming on SO FAST, that I can't believe it. I remember wondering a few weeks back, when they start to say small sentences and put words together. I bet you he will be able to have a full UNPROMPTED conversation by the time he turns 2 in less than 4 weeks!
