Over the holidays I got to spend quite a bit of quality time with my two little nieces whom I absolutely adore. Erykah stayed at my house 3 times over Christmas, Isabella just once. I believe that was the first time Isabella stayed anywhere overnight without her parents and she did quite well. She woke up once saying, "Da-dee, Da-dee" (daddy)...then paused and remembered, "Muna, Muna" (that would be me). Which brings me to the reason for this post, I thought I'd share some of the latest & cutest Isabella vocab:
As stated above, Muna means Myrna, she doesn't quite get the "auntie" part yet.
Here are some others:
Kekka - Erykah (she's usually screaming this word)
Jeemie - Jamie
Dannen - Darren
Gwamma - Grandma
aaaaup - (she really stressed the "aaaa" part) - up
ope - open
O sooot - Oh Shoot (making us all laugh out loud when she drops something)
patha - pasta
ites - lights
f**k - fork (yeah I know, it sounds really bad! lol)
move - exactly as it sounds, she's really good at this one especially when it comes to pushing her sister around
mook - milk
noman - snowman
Pop - not "grandpa" but the "pepsi" or "coke" soda kind of pop, another one she's great at cause she loves, loves, loves pop...bad!
yesh - yes
Dowa - Dora
Emmo - Elmo
soos - shoes
I think "Oh Shoot" is one of the very few 2-word sentences I've heard her put together so far. Funny little thing. For everything else, she just kinda freaks out when she can't use her yet-to-be-learned words....crazy feisty girl!
