As a matter of interest, does anyone else's DC do this when they are learning to talk?

Repeats one syllable, so:

cat = catcat
car = carcar
raisins = rayray
Night Garden = gargar
Tombliboos = booboo
shoe = shoeshoe
sock = socksock

You get the picture!

Yep but only certain words she used to say cat cat, chair chair and mum mum. It's only words she really liked.

She now repeats words only for effect. In particular

My ds says 'mum mum' never just 'mum' and when I ask a question he answers with 'yeah yeah' not just 'yes', that's all he says at the moment but it does sound like it's quite common!

Funny isn't it, I find it quite cute.
