It is so interesting to hear Helen's speech develop, which has been at an alarmingly faster rate than Little Philip's experience. Granted, Little Philip was plagued with ear infections and did not get tubes until he was 18 months old. Helen has only had two ear infections to date, and nothing to right home about. And let's face it, she is a girl.
So here are Helen's favorite topics.
SQUIRRELS (pronounced QUIRL)! At 21 months, she is obsessed. If she sees a squirrel she will levitate and begin squealing, pointing, shaking, holding her finger to her lips to let everyone know she needs complete silence to lure the squirrel nearer to her. She has no less than three stuffed squirrels in her crib at all times.
Goat - pronounced correctly, this is her second favorite animal in her book. She also called baby cows goats but we'll get there.
Hay kittay! - We have two cats, and she is very loving and wants to rub them all the time.
Ra Ra or Rayeeeeeeee - That's Riley our dog. Riley never let Little Philip sit on him like a pony ride, but Helen has achieved such greatness. I think Riley knows he's lost the battle with the princess of the house.
Mulchhh - Milk. She drinks a good gallon a day.
JoJoot - Yogurt. She eats about 4 servings a day. The girl is not missing any calcium.
Bed - Bread. She asks for plain pieces of bread or whole flour tortillas for snacks. And she devours it.
Cacker - Cracker
Beebee - Baby
Poon - Spoon
Tickle, tickle, tickle - self explanatory
Babah - Brother, although she has recently said brudder as well.
Favorite Phrase so far:
Where Daddy go? (with hands in the air)...answering her own question: At wuck.
I poo poo. Thanks for sharing Helen.
