Mia is now 14 months old.

Her understanding of English/Russian vocabulary is steadily developing. However. she’s not speaking any clear words as yet, just lots of da-da, ba-ba and ma-ma sounds!

Early days though…

Here are some words she’s learnt this month (not exhaustive but fairly accurate) and a video below.

As you may have seen in a previous blog post, our plan is for Sasha to ONLY speak Russian with Mia, and for me to talk to her in both English AND Russian.

cat
cow
dog
doll
eye
nose
squirrel

car
bird
ball
duck
ear
fish
horse
orange
pig
sheep
tomato

These are words Mia currently knows as of this month (some in Russian, some in English and some in both languages – she might know a few more, but I also expect she’ll forget some of them as well!)
