Millicent is the same, not sure it's her fave word but she uses it alot but only when needed if that makes sense. Although like your lo she says it more when she passes me something rather when I give her something, but I find it so cute and i'm happy she's got manners so to speak. The other morning she was brushing her teeth and when she was finished she handed it to me saying 'ta' so I put it away and said thank you and she clapped lol.
I really hate the word 'ta'. I never use it and I taught them to say thank you from the start. Before my daughter could say it properly, it sounded like she was saying 'Q' but I know what she meant and with my son it was more of a 'sankoo'.
At nursery a lot of the staff say ta and she always corrects them and tells them its thank you.
Its just one of my pet hates, I really dislike hearing toddlers saying ta.
I think 'ta' is a regional thing, even adults say it in Yorkshire, me included depending on who I'm speaking to. Alfie said 'ta' when he was younger but as his speaking has improved he's picked up 'thank you'.
'Ta' used to be his favourite word but its now 'no'.
