Word Count Addendum

Kelley brought it to my attention that I forgot to add “What’s THAT?!” or sometimes just “THAT?!” to Maddie’s list of spoken words. I don’t know how that slipped my mind considering it was her first real form of verbal communication.

And while we’re adding to the list, she’s already picked up a few more words since the last post. The count now stands at 26 with the following additions:

Happy: hap-ee
Puppy: pup-ee
Book: book
Apple: ap-ee
Please: peas
Oops: oops
Comida: da
Shoe: thew
Where did it go?: go?
Hi: Hi
Bye: byeeeeee

And the best one to-date,

Renny: R-r-nenny

We’d been trying to get her to say Renny for a long time, figuring it was easier to pronounce than “Warren.” To help her understand how the word starts, we’d begin with a few “rr-rr” sounds and then say “Renny.”  Seems she now believes that the name must be revved up to say properly.

It’s one of those mispronounced words we’ll be sad to see corrected.
