I don't understand you

I don't know if anyone else is going through this and I'm sure it's normal (I think), but Logan has taken to making up his own language. He's been speaking gibberish (different than the toddler learning to speak) for the last few weeks. When Bill and I tell him we don't understand what he's saying, he'll repeat exactly what he said in this made-up language. "Hooka saka" or something like that. For a while there, we thought he was actually trying to say something or having trouble with pronunciation, but then it became clear that he was making up words and trying to communicate with us in his "special" way. It was weird. And kind of annoying.

Last night he was speaking "Loganese" again and we told him that we didn't understand what he was saying. "Hooka. Saka.", he repeated. "Hakuna Matata"?, Bill asked him. "Yes", he answered. Alrighty then...

James plays with words and phrases, too. And repeats them over and over again. The only other thing I can really say is still mention it to his doc. But, in my non-doctory opinion, it just shows how smart this little guy is. And creative to boot!!

My 3 year old does the exact same thing. I think he is just trying to imitate the way his 1 year old little sister talks. While it is annoying, I don't think it's anything to worry about. : )

I don't think it's a big deal at all..It's just being a kid...Kelsie does it as well. She thinks it's funny...How funny that Bill said that...We also say Hakuna Mata to Kelsie! : )
