Toddlers often experience a vocabulary spurt during these months. A toddler who has a vocabulary of about 50 words may add about 50 more words in just a matter of months! You may want to keep a diary of the new words your toddler is using. It’s easy to do, and you will be fascinated when you look back at the notes you’ve written!

Step 1: As you notice your toddler using new words and phrases, jot them down (with the date) in the notebook.  

Step 2: Continue to add new words as your toddler learns them and be amazed as your toddler’s vocabulary grows!

Remember that toddlers reach language milestones at their own rate, so don’t be alarmed if your toddler’s vocabulary spurt occurs closer to the end of this stage.
