Vivie's vocbulary is taking off! I thought I'd take a minute and give you some of her favorites, and some that just make me laugh.
Eat: self explanitory - and constant! She is a bottomless pit!
Cacker: term used to describe anything crunchy, and uttered approximately 105 times a day.
Apool, Kiwi: another phrase used frequently to express hunger - although and apple and kiwi is rarely what she actually wants.
Fuffy: her little soft lovey she got for Christmas
Foowip & Ewy: Philip and Emily - the two kiddos I keep a few days a week
Tya!: Tyla - her best buddy. This is exclaimed anytime we pull up to the church building, in front of Tyla's house, or if she's just feeling lonely and wishes she had a friend to play with.
Duder: Oddly enough, this is our dog Cowboy. My parents have a dog named Dudley (who is often called Duder). She refuses to call Cowboy by his given name.
Ny-Ny: I don't care that it's only 5:50 pm, I'm tired and I'm ready to go to bed.
Shoosa?: Can we please put my shoes on and get in the "cow" and go somewhere?
Powwy: potty, spoken sometimes before, sometimes after she has gone in her "bopers" (diaper)- she's showing a great deal of interest and we plan to give training a shot over spring break
Hup, peese: Help please. This is most often used when she has climbed into a chair and is standing up in it not sure how to get down.
I could go on and on, but I guess that's enough to give you a taste of the cuteness that is Vivie. Oh, one more - my favorite:
Es meem: Yes mam - manners before age two - I think we're doing OK around here!
