Hi eveyone. My son is 23 months old and is becoming more vocal each day. He does this weird thing where he says bye (when we are leaving) to inanimate objects. Eg "bye toothbrush" when finished brushing teeth. It seems slightly odd to me and I wonder if he knows the different between real objects and not. He was pretending to put toys to sleep the other day but tried to put the ball and the ring stacker to sleep? Does that seem weird and does your child do abyrhing similar?

Is this normal?

Sounds very normal to me! DS1 is almost three and says bye to things when we leave ie 'bye house'. He also asks me to kiss his toys goodnight as well as him. I think it's sweet.

That is very normal. My DD is 2 in 2weeks & not even saying bye unless we say it.

Yep totally normal and oh so cute. My almost 3 yo DD would say bye trees, bye shopping, bye house. She doesn't say it so much now but it definitely started at about 2.

DS is 23 months and he sounds very similar to your DS OP. I think it's just to do with how they're developing language skills and tying language and objects all together.

Totally normal, he practising using words. DS says bye house every day.

Sounds very normal and is showing great imagination.
You can encourage and extend their language by saying things like 'yes you have finished cleaning your teeth'
'We will see your toothbrush again soon/ tonight/tomorrow' etc.

Yep totally normal. I am guilty of scolding furniture or the floor when I trip over or hurt myself and I am 32!

Your DS sounds absolutely gorgeous
My 2 year old is the same, she says "bye bye library, see you soon" when we leave there, "bye bath" "bye shop" bye park" etc etc.
