Violet Speak

Bad Mommy


These are V's words that I am able to decipher


maziwa (milk)
The only sign she knows. We haven't gone too much further with her signing. So far, we understand each other

up
The first spoken word I trained her on. Cuts down on a lot of grunting. She uses it when she wants to be picked up or put down.

hugs
Heart melty of a word to know. She says the word and then gives the best hug.

night night
So happy that she picked it up and knows what it means. She uses it when she's ready to nap and when it's time for bedtime she will say it before turning to her side to sleep. Sometimes she will take her pacifier out, say night night and put paci back in to get back in her sleep groove. Cute!

maji (water)
It's an obsession. She asks for it all the time. I think breast-milk has moved to her second favorite beverage.

thank-you
Every time she hands something over she says thank-you as if she's teaching you manners.

oga (bath)
She chants it every time she's near the bathroom and on the way to her bath.

bye
Rarely used when around other people or when one of us leaves. Mostly used before oga.

cheese
Only said when she hears the crinkling of the package. Her favorite food.

no
Obviously I'm saying this too much. She's already picked up on it including a head shake.

baby
Her doll

di di (diaper)
She knows what it is. I can't wait until she realizes it needs changing. With cloth diapers you may not smell it until you go in and see a flattened...anyways..

uh o
Something falls, shoe comes off, food on her leg gets the uh O

mgongo (back)
Only said around daddy when he's asking about her body parts in swahili

mama
When I say Violet she says Mama

daddy
All the time. No prompting. He doesn't have to even be around

minnie
She likes to kiss and hug Mickey more but only knows how to say Minnie's name.

mum-mum
Same as cheese. She love her mum-mums.

how u doing?
My favorite. Her uncle has been coaching her on this one. It's said in the voice of Joey on Friends. I'm not sure she's using it as a greeting but it's so funny when she says it.

When did you/your babies start talking? Any interesting first words?

I literally lol'd about the "How YOU doing". I always loved when Joey did it, and I'm pretty sure that I would love it even more in a cute baby voice!

Mimi said...

My baby and yours are saying some of the same words. Mine will say Minnie Mow...which is Minnie Mouse. She is also saying night night, cup, eat, hi mommy and a few other things. It is such an awesome thing to see them start to talk. It just happens out of no where.

So cute! I feel bad because I honestly don't remember what BBs first words were. *sigh*. I wish I had started blogging then,lol. LOVE 'how you doing', roflol.

This list is too cute, lol!! Kuddos to maji!! I enjoy watching kids drip up on the good stuff. I can't remember it's been so long for me but one thing comes to mind, my baby (who's now 4) used to say, fubup which meant robot. LOL!! He loved him some robots.

Quiana said...

Wow! She's saying so much and I'm sure she'll get a kick outta seeing list when she gets older. Nia says so much but most times I don't understand her. I'm always amazed by moms that understand their children's "babble." One of her early words though was "teacher" from Brown Bear, Brown Bear. So funny that outta all the words in that book it's the one she picked up!

Mama Violet said...

@Christina @Laila she used on a stranger in the grocery store yesterday. The guy was shocked she was talking to him and said howYOUdoing back!

Mama Violet said...

@Mimi I would love to hear this girl say "eat" to me. She picks up new word skills everyday. I'm loving it!

Mama Violet said...

@Lisa C Writes lol, is he still into robots?

Mama Violet said...

@Quiana Nia picked a nice big word to say!

A lot of V's words are very clear. When she says up. She likes to put extra emphasis on the P so it sounds like uPPA.
