I try not to be mean and I think Girlie understands that I’m trying to push her use of consonants. I had her ask using mimicry, after she finished breakfast this morning:
“Mommie- mah-may
and- an
Daddy- dah-day
I’m- Ahm
done- Duhn
eating- Eaten
so- o
could- cood
you- yu
let-leh
me-MEEEEEEEE
out-OWWWWWWWT
of-uff
the-thuh
chair-che-air
so- tho
I- AHHHHHH
can- kuhn
suck- sock
on- uhn
my- MIE
green- geen, “Green”-gareen
M&M- emimmmmiima, “EM&EM” emmineminem
house- howz
shoes- suze
until- un till
the- thu
little- lee tal
arms- ahms
and-an
legs-lehgs
are- ah
covered- kov uhd
in- EEEN
drool- doool “DRRROOl”-duh rooool
please?” PEASE!!!!

She’s a really
good sport
and I’m not
sure what
percentage
of this she
understands
but its a fun
little mouth
work out.

My boys were
almost talking
from birth and
were in daycare,
so they brought
all kinds of words,
germs and curse
words odd behavior
and voices home
to me everyday.

This is a new
experience.
When her
brother’s visit
they bring
mannerisms
and slang
to her
vocabulary
that I would not
expect, like her
brother’s name
sounds like a
curse word and until
she can say the letter
“_” we are stuck with it
and it no longer shocks anyone.

Yesterday, was
“Awww man!”
Last week,
“Uh-huh,”
turned
into “Yes”

Life’s little joys
