One of the adorable things I’m finding about toddler-hood is the list of vocabulary words they start to compile. It’s like a light-bulb goes on and they start to say more and more words each day. Evie keeps us laughing because she uses a lot of inflection when she speaks, and many of her words come out like questions. Here are some of her words:
a-MO?= Elmo (What is it about that furry red monster?! Cookie Monster and Oscar are way better.)
Ee-ee= Her name
Hush* = when the small one is sleeping.
And some of her phrases:
Is it?!= Where is it?
Ere she-is= What she says whenever she finds something she’s looking for.
I see YOU!
Hi! Guh-guh= Her universal greeting. Still trying to figure out the “guh-guh” meaning.
Ach. Hot. Don’t tuss.= The oven
No, no, no, no, no, no, tuss. = Her response to things the woman parent has told her are verboten.
Go!Go!Go! = When she “runs”
Hep peas.= Help please. (Only a few sparkling moments where this was uttered. Whenever we ask her to say “please” it’s usually met with stubbornness and fussing).
We’re also often experience a (constant) sound when she wants things, along the lines of “mmm-MMMM?!”. While endearing, I have my limits of how many times in a row I can hear it. Needless to say, I’m working on my patience while also trying to work with Evie on using words to communicate. :)
