💬 Baby Speech & Language Development 💬
Around 2 to 4 months of age your baby makes lots of noises but these are known as reflexive vocalisations- meaning that babies don’t have control over them or intention, they are just responses to reflexes in the brain telling them they’re uncomfortable or hungry which results in crying or fussing, or air passing through their vocal tract making noises such as burping, coughing and sneezing. Around 4 to 6 months babies vocalisations change to non-reflexive; cooing/gooing sounds to vocalise their comfort state. At this stage we are already teaching our babies about communication. We are responding verbally to their vocalisations and then pausing and waiting for them to vocalise again- we are essentially teaching them to take turns much as we do in our everyday conversations with each other. Teaching language to our children starts well before they are able to respond intentionally to us!! #SLT#speechtherapy#languagetherapy#speechlanguagetherapist#nz#childdevelopment#languagedevelopment#babytalk#2monthsold#4monthsold
Not a surprise that the only reading I did while on vacationing at “hoMe” in Michigan was Brene Brown. Reading this again because once just isn’t enough.
Do you worry about or wonder what people think? We all do to an extent and if we do not, it means we lack empathy all together. The solution so we aren’t debilitated or altering our lives with concern?? Brene says to get super intentional about whose feedback we give power to.
How to? Cut a 1x1 inch/2.5x2.5cm square and write names on it of the people you trust enough to give and receive feedback.
“These should be the people who love you not despite your imperfections and vulnerabilities, but because of them. These are the folks that when you’re face down in the arena will pick you up and confirm that the fall totally sucked, then remind you that you’re brave and they’ll be there to dust you off next time. You should also include the people who are brave enough to say “I disagree” or “I think you’re wrong” and who will question you when they see you acting outside of your values.”
My list is 6 badassingly amazing people long. This is an empowering practice because when we get random comments from strangers at the park, on the internet, or elsewhere in life that aren’t content enough with their lives to respond in a supportive way, you can check if they’re on the list - leave it for what it is and go about the day. If so, rethink actions and learn from it for next time.
Ever inspired by this lady and her work.
Some houseguests are just too cute to handle. We're already missing the sweet jabbering and calls for "catcat." Except Sully. He's walking around like he owns the place now that he isn't being stalked by tiny feet.
Miss Elena was faaabulous the other night! 👑 Does anybody else talk to their horses with an annoying baby voice? lol! 😚😆 ——
First ride after about two weeks of being rained out. I was able to hop on Rocky and Elena and they were both brilliant! Of course when I went to video the rides my camera battery was dead before it even started. Oops. Hope y’all have been able to get some riding in since all the rain and storming recently. Looks like we might still have a bunch of rain in the forecast. We didn’t get anything done over the weekend unfortunately due to storms. I have family coming in so goals for this week will not be quite so intensive, but hopefully will get to teach some lessons as I can and hop on the horses as weather permits. Plus I just learned that I will be featured in a local publication so hopefully getting some pictures on Elena done this week for that! Stay tuned!
Charting Michaela’s growth has been one of the most enjoyable things about mummyhood. Babies develop so quickly, and before we know it, they are starting to discover their own hands and learning how to use their voices. Hearing her communicate with grandma today was warmly hilarious. Can anyone guess what she’s saying? 🤔 #michaelalaurenyuen#babies#babytalk#3monthsold
Кто нибудь что нибудь понял?!)))
История 19. "Ин.яз.".
У меня всегда были одни пятёрки по точным наукам: алгебра, геометрия, высшая математика, черчение... Но вот английский язык, русский язык - никогда не давались.
Удивительно, что сестра - чёткая противоположность. В школе зачастую было так: она делает мне переводы, ну или проверяет грамматику - я ей делаю чертежи, помогаю с уровнениями. Так и повелось, она изучала множество языков, в т.ч. французкий, японский, ну а я могла начертить себе проект угловой кухни в блокноте, пока ехала в маршрутке и, при этом, ошибиться в 1-2см))) Когда я заканчивала 1 курс, к нам на экзамен пришла новая молодая препод. Мне достался "счастливый билет" (свободная тема). Всё немногочисленное количество слов, которые выучила за период обучения в школе и в университете я выдала на экзамене (и даже ответила на все поставленные вопросы). К всеобщему удивлению, за экзамен мне поставили 5, похвалили за отличное произношение. На самом деле, мои знания сложно натянуть даже на "удовлетворительно", однако одной из моих целей на предстоящее время - всё таки попытаться изучить иностранный язык)) #светочекдочек#агуша#детиразговаривают#историиизжизни#экзамен#эмоции#детскаяпсихология#наезд#поговорим#babytalk
