Mom Urges Little Girl To Ask Nicely For Snack. Her 6 Word Response Melts Everyone’s Heart

Sharron Goodyear of Sussex is mom to three and a professional photographer. Her flexible work schedule allows her to spend most of her days with her little ones at home.
That also means that Sharron is able to nurture and dote upon her kids, helping them master development milestones such as speaking clearly. She loves capturing her children on camera and video whenever she can and we're glad she does.
She recorded her little girl learning to politely request a snack from her mum. Sharron blogs regularly about motherhood, being a photographer and fashion after 40.
Sharron shared her video of her darling daughter trying to perfect the phrase "Please, can I have a yogurt?" According to WebMD, babies start out babbling and cooing, then listen intently to others around them for cues on how to speak and form words.
When a little one begins speaking is completely up to each individual baby. By six months of age, babies begin putting together babbling sounds to pronounce words like mama.
By nine months of age, many babies are able to understand a few words spoken to them like no and bye-bye. By one year or so, most babies have a grasp of basic words and concepts, as well as directions like "Please put that down."
At 18 months or so, babies are able to start stringing together a few simple words, which is exactly what Sharron's cute little girl is able to do. Sharron is hoping she'll figure out how to politely request a yogurt for a snack.
The funny part is that her daughter keeps wanting to see herself the entire time, so Sharron pauses in mid-lesson to let her see how she's simply recording her trying to talk. Sharron says "Say to mummy, please can I...."
Once Sharron redirects her daughter back to their mini-lesson, they continue. She has to repeat after her the words. The cutest part is when Sharron discovers her little girl cannot pronounce "I." It's so cute to listen to her try!
Finally, her daughter masters the sentence. Mom rewards her with a smooch and, ultimately, with a yogurt.
