Language continues to be a very entertaining undertaking with our daughter. The more she learns, the more she creates and adds to the English language. She's a little Shakespeare, this one. A few of her entries from the past couple of months:
1. She can turn any noun into a verb by adding 'ing'. She says things like, "It's nighting" when it's dark outside or "It's wintering" when it's cold.
2. Our dogs bark. A lot. That could be a whole post in and of itself. However, if there's one thing more irritating than the dogs barking, it's The Nugget screaming at them to stop. We've talked to her repeatedly about how dogs sometimes need to bark and get it out of their system and then they'll stop. Now she says, "The dogs just need to take a little bark." Love.
3. She practices what sounds her letters make when reading her books with alphabets, however she doesn't always quite get it right. I heard her the other day saying, "mm mm is the sound of B". I guess we have a little more work to do in that department!
4. She's starting to lose it, but she still says her "L's" like "W's" most of the time. It's absolutely adorable. I've made her practice saying it like she is supposed to, and she can, but I don't push it too hard because I'm going to miss her saying things like "wittle" and "wuv" instead of "little" and "love".
5. She's created a whole new word for forgetting things, a hybrid of forgot and left. If we leave something behind when we go somewhere or if she finds something belonging to another child she will say, "Oh, no, Mommy! They for-left it!" It's even cuter with the whole "L" thing because it comes out sounding like "fer-weft". Adorable.
