Talk! Talk! Talk!


Lily was not an early talker. A month before her 2 year appointment I was worried about what the pediatrician might say about her lack of verbal communication. However, shortly thereafter, the words began to spill out! Now, she is rambling in fragmented sentences CONSTANTLY! I still play the role of translator because she definitely has her own way of pronouncing words. There are still several letters in the alphabet that she hasn't yet mastered...but that is part of the fun. I am loving this talkative child of mine. The things that come out of her mouth tend to BLOW ME AWAY! Examples, you say? You would like some examples of her funny verbage? OK. Here are some snippits of Lily's chatter.

Right now she is sitting next to me telling me she needs her "yebbow shubbel" (yellow shovel)...she is now wandering around the kitchen looking for it saying "Where's my shubbel mommy. Help me find it. Need to find dog bones. bweet for dogs. Owange bweet (treat); bweet for dogs. Yeeyee(Lily) need it shubbel. Tell daddy." Now she is asking daddy to help her find her shovel so she can dig for dog bones. Uh oh, daddy can't help. Now, she's on to another thing. She is looking up Jay's nose and saying, "spidas in daddy's nose, mommy. Yeeyee yuvs spidas mommy."

Yesterday morning she opened the shower curtain when I was in there and said "Mommy, I'm gonna touch your boobies! I'm gonna reach 'em" and she started to lunge at me. (She has a slight obsession with my boobies right now. I hear this is normal, so I'm not concerned.)

Speaking of obsessions, she LOVES LOVES LOVES berries right now. Is eating bowl after bowl of them. So, the other day after she inhaled a huge bowl of blueberries I said, "Wow, Lily, you are my blueberry girl!" To which she sadly replied, "Don't say dat momma! Don't say it bwooberry girl. Dat's your wittle baby!" My sweetie wants to stay a baby a little while longer.

Another phrase you will hear in our house at least 5 times a day: "So many poo poo nuggets!" ( One time, long ago, I was changing her diaper after she had gone number 2. And she said "it's a big one" and I said, "no, it's just a nugget")
Well, now it is all about the poo poo nuggets. She can talk this little subject to death. Loves to talk about the time "silly daddy dwopped the poo poo nugget on da fwoor!"

I could go on and on...she sure does. But, I'll save some more fun for another day.

Too funny! Hannah's favorite phrases these days are "what's that?" and "Hi, I'm Hannah!"

Too cut! It is the old saying that you can't wait for them to talk and then once they do, you want them to be quiet.

Enjoy the conversations!

How full of joy Lily is! I can tell how happy your household is by the pure happiness that spills out of her.

Yep, boobies and poo poo, body and bodily function talk/humor never loses its appeal!!

Just yesterday my 8 year old son asked why boys have to have boobies. So then we had to define "boobies" and "nippies". In our world, boobies have a job, nippies are just for looking or piercing. :) He seemed to be okay with that answer....for now!

i always thought boobies where a guy thing, but i think you are right. emily is obsessed with them also.

Dannye said...

see I am an inexperienced parent to be, I knew children obsessed with bodily functions (hence the "nuggets"), but had no idea about the boobie obsession, well live and learn...so glad i have you bloggy friends (who are great parents) to learn from.
