Peanut’s Gigi (grandma) watched her this past weekend while Jon and I took an overnight trip to Boston and I was writing out some general routine etc guidelines for her, along with Peanut’s less than obvious pronunciations of words.
“wasset” = what’s that. Used as one word, always.
“up-pit” = open.
“bee-kee” or something even weirder that I can’t figure out how to type out = blanket. She always has to have two of them.
“Tah-veess” = Travis. Also often referred to as “arf,” what she calls doggies. Hey, at least she got the sound right.
“doogy” = cookie. Usually said in a whiny voice after she gets hurt, like, “doooooo-gy.” That one’s our fault for trying to calm her down with a cookie once when we were in Florida. Apparently toddlers have memories like elephants when it comes to cookies and nunu’s. ps- we don’t usually give in, but it doesn’t stop her from asking for her “doogy.”
“ralf” = milk. She can actually pronounce milk if you ask her to do it, but when she’s asking for it, it’s always “ralf,” to which I maturely reply, “Ralf’s not here right now, but if you leave a message, he’ll be sure to get back to you.”
