  1. Loved this post (I commented on Toddler Approved) but also gotta , I love the way you and Kim are working together! I have been a fan of her blog for a long time, and when I stumbled upon this post on pinterest, I felt like I was betraying her. :) I was so pleased to see that you linked to her blog and her ideas, too!

    And by the way – the wait time is HUGE for my 19 month old. When I was teaching, I trained myself to count to 5 silently after asking questions, and I find that if I don’t do that, he doesn’t respond!

    • Awe Thanks Katie! Yes Kim a and I love collaborating and working together. We both have the same ideals and beliefs when it comes to early speech and language development and we see the value in working together to help others :) I hope you stick around! So glad to have you here!

  2. I just went over and read your top five tips. They are great. I always try and buy toys that you can learn with at the same time as having fun. I found a great teddy bear that used magnets to tell you which part of the body was which. It said the part then sung a tune. I then reiterate it too my child who then would point to that part of the body. Great post !
