Words & Phrases

We're really going to be in for it soon...Elizabeth is repeating a TON! In fact, during the Red Sox game on Friday, when the Sox briefly let the Angels back in the game, Daddy (my Daddy) said, "Oh, $hit." Which, if you know my Daddy, is a rare thing to catch him swearing. Next thing you know, a very tired Elizabeth guessed it "$hit." At least we haven't heard a repeat performance of the swearing...which means somebody may want to take her off of my hands, STAT!

I was trying to figure out a more comprehensive list of the words & phrases Elizabeth can say. I'm sure this will still be missing some, but I have broken the listing into categories (that made sense to me.) If there is a * beside the word, she can also make the sign for the word. Here goes:

  • PEOPLE: Mama/Mommy/Jennie; Daddy; Kenny (Kennedy); Nana; Papa; RaRa (Rikki); Doh (Doug); Larry; Boomer; Gamma (Grandma); Papi; Anne; Sean; Ali (Alex); CaCa; Caylin; Jake; Stewie; Joe; Sarah; Hans; Rich; Steeb (Steve); Erin (sounds more like Anna, though); Rusty; Tim; Nancy; Stella; Connie; Johnny (Mom & Daddy's neighbor); Tyler; Will (sounds like wheel); Justin; Booty; Ben; Joel; and Jon (the last 7 are members/graduates of the Fairmont State golf team)

  • BODY PARTS: Head; Toes; Hand; Eyes; Mouth; Nose; Ears; Arm; Ebow (elbow) Teeth; Hair; Foot; Knee; Belly (she can point to all of these body parts on either herself or someone else)
  • THINGS WE DO: *Play; *Bath; Sleep; Swing; Kick; Potty; Pee; Rock Rock (in the rocking chair); Clean; Read; Ride; Color; Peek; Catch; Bounce; Five (as in a high 5); Sit (sometimes!)

What a amazing child she is. It's so much fun hearing her new words every time I see her.
