so, some of my loyal readers (hahaha) have asked what zoë is saying. i thought i would fill you in on the words she knows, and says on a regular basis.
eat (of course!)
ewwww stinky (usually preceded by her or someone else passing gas)
grandpa (but no grandma)
hot (usually followed by blowing on whatever object she has deemed as hot)
copter (there is a military installation near the house, and helicopters fly over regularly)
fishy (sounds like shishy)
hi (said to any and everyone within earshot. and she’ll repeat it until she gets a response)
dinosaur noises (she won’t say dino, but she will roar when you ask her what it says)
puppy (plus woofing)
kitty (plus meowing)
birdie (plus making high pitched squeely noises)
i was really worrying about her, about a month ago. she had about 5 words, and while she understood a lot of them, she wasn’t saying them. than all of a sudden, complete language explosion. i kid you not, aside from mama, poppa, no ma’am, bye bye, and juice, she didn’t say any of these 4 weeks ago. it’s been surreal, watching her mind expand at such a high rate. she understands quite a few more words, but she’s not saying them yet. i guess we need to wait until next month.
