DS (starting reception next month and speech delayed) still hasn't started asking why yet. It can be an irritating phase, but try and enjoy the fact that you have a kid who is developing language nice and on schedule.
DD has been saying Why for about 2 months, in fact since her second birthday almost to the day, but it has been tentative, not really with understanding, but with the caution of a child copying from nursery.
Whereas the last three days, she has said it about 20 times. This morning, she has said it about 20 times, already!!!
Totalchaos - sorry to hear your son is speech delayed but think is just a light hearted thread, Pavlov shouldn't be made to feel bad because she's commenting/laughing at a phase which is particularly irritating (ds nearly 4yrs STILL doing it all the time!)
onwardandupward - the fan is the more interesting thing to play with!!! And whatever it is she wants to know what and why...which really is the point. It could have been the fan, it could have been 'what is that?' 'a fish' 'why' whats that 'another fish' 'why' etc etc!
My point was only meant to be lighthearted about the imminence of Whys for years to come!
My babe is 2.2 exactly!!! I am not sure she will grasp the concept of 'why do you think?' yet! Being a little young, it is sooooooo cute, she has been asking things like 'what is that?' 'mushrooms' 'why'? what are you doing? eating fish 'why?'!!!
