Breaking News!

We interrupt this festival of phlegm, this celebration of snot, this marvel of mucous (seriously, where is it all coming from?) to bring you exciting bumblebee news:

She speaks! Well, ok, she’s been talking for quite a while now, but the nature of her speaking has advanced – she has uttered a duosyllabic word! Well, ok, she’s been more than monosyllabic for quite a while now, but the nature of her duosyllabic talk has advanced – each of the two syllables was different! A breakthrough for us. Up until now, bee just repeated the opening sound as many times as the word called for. You know, mama, dada, wawa, nana, baba, woowoo, nighnigh. But today – two different phonetic sounds. I knew she was capable of this; she can adeptly get two sounds into one word, providing they were monosyllabic words –get me? Like hop, more, or ball, and she can definitely string more than one word together – lately, in addition to pointing things out – a bus, a shee, a car (she gets her articles), I’ve been hearing a lot of all done, oh, no and no, mama.

But just this morning, she did it. A two-syllable word, two different sounds…

Poopers.

Her father will be so proud.

    And what a great and essential word pooper is!

    That photo! One for a frame and the wall, I think.

    Excellent word choice and illustration.

    The fun begins!

    The other day, I was cursing a spill, and said "Shoot, shoot, shoot!"

    The child repeated, "Shoo, shoo, shoo."

    Thank God I was already wearing the censorship hat and hadn't said anything incriminating.

    Fabulous picture!

    The Boy has been learning new words rapidly for about a month or so. Yesterday, the Husband used some choice words during an intense football game, and didn't the Boy reapeat them both.

    I've had reminders from the Husband to watch my language for ages. So much for Mummy being the "Swear Bear" of the household. I can now blame the Husband, and I am loving it!

    So cute! Just wait for the questions! They rock so freakin' hard. "Where'd Daddy go?" was the first one round here. Love it!

    Yeah, we got the sick too. I am so tired of wiping noses. Feel better.

    if you're going to speak, it's best to go straight for the potty humor :)

    Hooray for Bumblebee! Pooper is Super. Tee Hee.

    Excellent work bumblebee! Poopers is most essential for communication.

    Oh, quelle disappointment! The word wasn't shit? Tut-tut.

    (Ahem. Kidding, of course. Holy poopers.)

    A genius in the making, I'd say. It seems she knows 1 from 2 and not just when it comes to syllables.

    Isn't it the best to hear their sweet voices form words all on their own?
    Poopers...awesome!
    great pic. the bee is too cute.

    Hey penelopeto,
    I hope it's ok that I tagged you for a meme.

    Oh I love that. I am afraid The Alien might say "dumper" - heh heh
