Word of the Day!

Here it is! The official "Word of the Day" stickie. Feel free to keep adding to this thread as you tell us the new words your LO is learning and the endearing stories that go along with each word. You don't have to limit yourself to one word either. Smile

A couple of days ago, I took Cole to the park. On our previous trip there, DH had shown Cole how to pick dandelions and blow all the seeds off which Cole found endlessly entertaining. So, on this trip, I let Cole run through the fields to look for dandelions. He kept yelling "Danny! Danny!" It was so cute. Smile

About a month ago I was putting Brody's dirty cloth diapers in the washing machine. He was in the laundry room with me. He made a noise, so I looked down at him. He was waving his hand in front of his face and said "STINKY!".

I have to add a picture with this, so you can get the full effect! This was a hard picture to take, so it's a little blurry. This happened earlier today. I was lying on the couch when Brody climbed up, picked up my shirt and said either "baby" or "belly". I couldn't tell which one since I wad surprised he said it. He then put his head on my belly and started talking. The baby started kicking when Brody talked to him/her. How sweet!

Yesterday, I picked Cole up from daycare with my bike. We make it a point to put his helmet on whenever he's in the bike trailer or on his bicycle, but I forgot it this time. So, for most of the ride home, Cole kept saying, "helmo" because he wanted his helmet.

Whenever Brody touches the TV or speaker system, Sean says "bad". I told Sean that Brody is going to start saying that to other kids. Yesterday, Brody had a playdate with a little boy, Sid, who is a month older than him. Sid picked up Brody's VTech Baby Video game which is on the entertainment center. Brody put his hands up, babbled a few things, and then said "BAD!".

Since being at my IL's this week, Jason has said Cocoa -perfect first try- (My FIL Stepmom's dog, not the chocolate)

Pa-Pa less than 24 hours after we arrived.

He has also started to call me Daddy, Michael Momma, and signs and says more when he is about to get in trouble so I'll get all giddy with excitement that he is finally signing.

Baseball (for his stuffed baseball guy we call Baseball Buddy): Bay-bo, bay-bo, bay-bo! (Never says it once!)

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

Touch--We have always told Hadley "No touch" when she is about to touch something she is not supposed to. I always have a book on my nightstand, and she is always trying to take it. I told her no touch, she looked at me put her finger on it and said touch. Little stinker.

Cole is able to say "I love you" now, except it sounds more like "I luff oo". Still, my mom's been visiting my sister for 3 weeks and so we left a message for her and I think she'll really appreciate it. "Hi, Momo. Luff oo. Buh-bye!" Smile

Like John, Cole also knows how to ask for "hep".

I bought Brody a new book today. It's of the Sesame Street characters as babies (in diapers). I did not say anything about them being babies, I just said their names (Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover, Big Bird, etc). I was reading it to him and he pointed to Elmo as a baby as said "bebe". As a new character was on the page, he pointed and said "bebe". This may have been a coincidence. :confused:
After we finished reading it, I said "Show it to daddy and he'll read to you." He handed Sean the book and said, very clearly and strongly "READ!". Blum 3

I don't know where this one is coming from but he is saying Fish now! He walked into my BIL room and saw a fish tank and pointed at it and said fish! So, we are making a trip to the store to buy Noah his first pet! A little fish I am going to let him pick it out Smile

Cole can very clearly say "dragon" today. Up until now, he would say "danny".

He can also very clearly let us know that he wants "Elmo", "Goger" (Grover), "Abby", "Eunie" (Ernie) and "Birdie" (Big Bird). *sigh* We've created a Sesame Street monster of our own... Wink

Elmo--"Emmo" We were in Wal-Mart and we had some extra time so I took her to the toy department. She saw Elmo Live and started yelling Emmo Emmo. Whenever we go to the toy department she only wants to play with the toys we already have at home.

I was just coming to post that word!

It's not plain as day, but he definitely knows what it means.

Butt--This one is courtesy of DH. I always refer to Hadley's butt as her tushy. Well, DH always says butt. Today he said let's go change your butt (diaper). Now Hadley is walking around grabbing her bottom and saying "butt, butt, butt" Gotta love DH.

"Hurt". Poor Cole has a bad diaper rash, so when we wipe his bum, he says, "Hurt." Sad

"Plum"

"Raining" - although he says it more like "wenny", but he's used it quite a lot now that it's been wet quite often.

Bap-po = Apple. DH says he's been saying this for a few weeks but I just heard it today!

Whenever Cole has to lift something heavy or awkward, he says "heavy".

Isn't it neat how their diction clears itself up? For example, a week ago, John was saying Bap-po and Melmo or Momo for Apple and Elmo.

But today he is saying Ap-po and Elmo. These kids are zooming along!!!

Claire's new word of the day is "pie"... appropriate for Thanksgiving! The way she says it though, it sounds like she has a southern accent... cracks me up!
She says "bye bye" too, and that sounds southern as well.
When Claire says "no" it sounds french..."non non". Its hilarious!
She has said "hallowee" once...left off the 'n'.
That's about all I can think of.

Word of the day: "Yogurt". Cole normally says "yo yo", but today we were shopping for groceries and he said "yogurt" as clear as day. On the way back to the car, he also asked DH, "How you doing?"

The other day, Cole was heading up the stairs with DH close behind. Cole looked down at his dad and said, "Come on!"

He also told me "toilet" this morning, so I took him to the bathroom, and after he went, he said, "I did it!"

"Stop it!"

I was singing in the car the other day when Cole first used this. So far, he says it with a smile. Hopefully that's how it will stay. Smile

This is my Favorite thread! Reading through and seeing words Izzy has and each of their variations and improvements on it. Her vocabulary just amazes and amuses me everyday! Izzy is my lil parrot and proved it with her latest! As I was changing her to put her to bed tonight, my oldest was telling me something...during which she had to pause with an "um". It took her a minute to figure out where she was at...during which Izzy looked at her looked at me and goes "um". It was to funny. She repeats EVERYTHING its so funny.

The ones we hear on a daily basis, other than family members, that are in right context without prompting (that make sense?) are Hot, cold (complete with shivering sign), drink (dunk), snack (nck), eat (sometimes as soon as she opens her eyes!), (her bear) Aero, Up (to go upstairs), down, nigh nigh, bye bye, luv you bunches (luv u bunchays).

My favorite, with prompting....Peee-ewww! (peshew)

Some of her latest:
Our lab, Jack, the only one we've never worked with came up to her. She was expecting to be licked to death so told him No and Stay (stahy)-then walked away. The best part-He did it til I released him a min later!!

told her no way in the tub yesterday-perfectly clear she told ME no way back.

Her strong point is her vocab, she repeats everything, and is finally putting things together towards sentences (wanted our off bed the other morning and said Izzy down) I just love listening to her and how she says somethings (Oh goodness becomes ogoonessh) Sorry i've rambled but guess I was trying to catch up lol.

*update* (since last post was my rambling)
The latest instant repeat and not just once or twice, over and over until I gave her another meaningless word.

Couldn't find info I was looking for on tylenol bottle and said what the heck!
Izzy picked up heck of course crawling around bed having a grand time "heck, heck HECK heck, HEck he he" til I then said no bad word (not really but my in laws wouldn't appreciate and not one she needs....) so then all the way into bed it was Bad , bad bad bad...while jumping on her bed bad bad bad. oh boy here it comes.

Fridge. Well, it actually sounds like "fidge". When Cole's done drinking his milk, he says "fidge" and then goes to put his bottle in the fridge.

My mom has taught Cole the word "difficult". The problem is that he's now a bit confused because not only is it "difficult" to push a heavy object, but he sometimes will say that a table is "difficult" instead of "hard".

"Mo coffee peeeeeease!"
when a waiter comes to our table.... (no, she doesn't get to drink coffee!)

"Oh NOOOO!" very dramatically whenever she drops or spills something....

"please" is her new favorite word... she tacks it on to the end of every demand thinking it will get her what she wants!

I didn't think I'd post here again since Cole tends to come up with clever sentences rather than amazing words. On Hallowe'en though, it snowed. This would be the first snow that he would have a genuine reaction of awe. Cole looked out at the snow and said, "But evenutally we'll have to shovel it." I said that it might melt. He replied that "eventually it may melt." I'm amazed that he knows exactly how to use such a big word: eventually. Smile
