Razz has been babbling / talking a heck of a lot more these days. She loves to babble and roll her tongue…She also can now say the following words:
- Mama (what she calls me and Mama Brend b/c she can’t say “Mommy” for some reason)
- Duh (for dogers)
- Elmo (what she calls Elmo and Wall-E)
- Ye-Ye – courtesy of “Ni Hao Kailan” (Ye-Yemeans grandpa in Chinese)
- Abba – I would love to say this is because of the musical group Abba, but alas this is courtesty of “Yo Gabba Gabba”.
- and of course – DORA
So, she can say “mum” and she can say “me”, but she can’t say “mommy”.
What is it about my daughters that they can’t say “Mommy”? They start out saying it and then forget? Kiana was the same way. She would be able to call me at times of distress (and by distress I mean she wants to get out of her playpen/exersaucer or wants a toy out of her reach), but that was the only time she would call me until later on. Weird huh or is it a common thing? hhmmmmm
Oh and the best part? She loves to sing herself some pop tunes…For example, if we sing “Mamma Mia” by Abba, she’ll say “why, why” during that part of the chorus and sing the instrumental beat too. She also says “Ella, Ella, Ella…eh-eh-eh” for Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and “Low, Low, Low” for Flo-ri-da’s “Low”. Of course, she also loves her nursery rhymes like “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” where she’ll add the last word to each line and that’s the same to ABCs and “Itsy-Bitsy Spider”, etc…She also LOVES “Pat-a-Cake”…
