Nolan hasn't used the concept or word of "yes" yet. He hasn't even nodded to indicate he would like something. After some games with our speech therapist, he is now (with prompts) using the word yes. It goes something like this:
"Nolan, do you want more bubbles?"
Nolan: "Want more bubbles."
Speech therapist: Nods head vigorously.
Nolan: Also nods head vigorously.
Speech therapist (still nodding), "Yes, I want more bubbles!"
Nolan: "Want more bubbles- yes!"
The good news is that the nodding prompt is now working to elicit the "yes" response (though he doesn't use it spontaneously). The bad news is that we are all going to need dramamine from the motion sickness induced by all that nodding!
Since I'm in brag mode, other new Nolan phrases are:
"Be right back, Mom!"
"Want watch moodie (movie)."
"Don't kiss my head!"
There seems to be another language explosion around the age of two, and it is a big one. We have heard a six word sentence recently (though the more typical length is 3-4 words). If he continues at this rate, he may be orating speeches by the end of this year!
