My daughter is almost 3 years old and her vocabulary is limited to about 20 words we can understand. None of them are incredibly clear when spoken, but her mom and I have learned to make out what we can and rely on gestures for the rest.
As her parents, we are excited for the day when our precious child can verbally communicate her thoughts, desires and feelings to us. The day she can tell us about her pretend adventures with her dolls, let us know why she is upset, or, eventually, say, “I love you”.
It can be hard to wait and there is definitely a growing frustration as she wants to express more than we are able to understand. But, in all honesty, the most frustrating aspect of this situation has been the reactions of other people.
