mobile Cocooners: In Translation

In Translation

Friday, March 14, 2014
When you have a little one who starts repeating everything you say, you have a lot of fun.  First, it's a hoot when they start talking and they have these little high-pitched voices (Dax's is actually pretty deep for a baby but still...).  What is even more fun is trying to decipher what they say on their own, when they are not repeating you.  Just for kicks and giggles I have made a list of a few words from my 19 month old's current vocabulary and corresponding English language translation (capitals and repeat letters/vowels are for emphasis).


Dax
Actual Word
Notes
Sawee             
Sorry
His favorite word.  His inflection is on point.   Very cute.
Orrwish  
Orange
His favorite color.
Amiyo
Amarillo
The Spanish word for Yellow.  He won't say Yellow.
NYE NYE
Night Night
He tells me this before bed, loudly and very gruntily.
Rayad
Red
Gotta love that extra syllable he uses.
Effunt
Elephant
His favorite animal.
Eeyore
Ear
Not to be confused with the Winnie-the-Pooh character.
Amen
Amen
Perfect pronunciation.  Loves his prayers.
TishWishishasha
Miss Patricia
His favorite teacher.  Again, very cute.
DaDaDaddyDaddy
Daddy
He really loves his dad.
(Silence)
Mommy
He loves me too but he just won't say it.
