say what?

December 1st, 2012

Matthias is a joy and it is AMAZING how much he has learned in such a short time. He’s almost going to be 17 months old, and in the past couple of days, he’s been more consistently telling us that he has to go to the bathroom by going to the bottom of the stairs (or clinging to our legs) and saying “poo poo”. At this time, he doesn’t differentiate between poop and pee. He uses the term “poo poo” for the toilet or something, not quite sure.

Here’s a list of other words that he knows how to say. This does not include words that he understands, because I don’t even know if I could count that!

  1. star (tah!)
  2. aiyah
  3. poo poo
  4. down
  5. milk (nai nai)
  6. food (mung mung)
  7. bite
  8. more
  9. dad
  10. ma
  11. door
  12. clock (dzung)
  13. bubble
  14. spoon (boo)
  15. sock (wah dzi or mut mut)
  16. paw paw
  17. yeh yeh
  18. dai yee (for dai yee paw)
  19. bath (baaa!)
  20. book (bu!)
  21. ball
  22. moon (moo)
  23. baby
  24. hi
  25. bye
  26. bib
  27. wait (way)
