Baby Words

Sweet Pea is using many words now, at nearly 15 months old. She understands much more, but these are the ones she uses consistently, in order of daily occurrence:

doggie
Dada
Mama
hi
that (izzat)
thank you (tee dee)
diaper (bahpoo)
up
outside (uhsiee)
shoes (ish)
*the parenthesis are for her pronunciations/interpretations of the words

and she signs for:
milk
more
food
water
music

Learning language is so much fun! We do have frustrating times where I know she wants something or is trying to tell me how she feels about something but is struggling to get her point across, but those seem to be rarer right now. Although I guess that could get more common again soon as her desires become more complex? She is a very physical child and will go stand at the door and try to open it when she wants to go outside, bring her water bottle to the sink when she wants it filled, and has even brought me a diaper when she needed to be changed. So, most of the time she can make herself understood, even with a small vocabulary. I have heard that language often starts to really explode in the next few months. Can't wait!

  2. That's right, she says poop and boo, too! In her own way of course, so they sound more like "puh" and "buh" :)
