Another sign that your toddler will soon start talking is when they begin to imitate the way you talk. They’ve become exposed to words and conversations around them, now they’d want to start emulating what they’ve been hearing. Pausing between conversations, using the same inflections and gesticulations as you, and babbling in response to your questions are some of the ways your little one imitates your speech. Even if their babbles don’t make much sense, they try anyway. So, get ready for your little chatterbox to mimic your words.
